The issue can only be solved in cooperation with other member states, the EU as a whole and NATO, according to officials.

“Today, more than 76 years after World War II ended, sunken chemicals, ammunition and shipwrecks are a ticking environmental bomb that can at any moment explode with deadly substances," said Jacek Sasin, Poland’s Minister of State Assets.

"The leakage could cause an environmental disaster on an unimaginable scale, and the Baltic Sea as we know it would be gone,” he added.
