The Swedish media reported it.

“During the crime scene investigation conducted in the Baltic Sea many finds were collected and the area was thoroughly analyzed. The analyzes carried out show explosive residues on several foreign objects found. Advanced analysis work continues to draw more reliable conclusions about the incident,” prosecutor Ljungqvist said in a press release. “The collaboration between the Swedish authorities and those of other countries is excellent. For the continuation of the preliminary investigations and the various ongoing collaborations it is important to be able to work in peace”, he added. According to Ljungqvist, the preliminary investigation is very complex and extensive and it is not yet clear whether anyone will be charged with a crime.

It is “very important to establish who is behind the explosions“said the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commenting on the results of the Swedish investigation.
