This happened right when NATO is desperately searching for the Russian sub Rostov-on-Don, a Kilo class sub that disappeared a week ago. This sub is a very nasty one that is fairly small, and could have gone through the canal submerged. Right now they have the entire Mediterranean sealed off to prevent it from getting away, which is somewhat far fetched when they don't even know where it is.
I think it is far fetched that they'd have opted to do this much damage just to find a hidden sub, but the sub is indeed missing and might have been that important. Who knows. It would be a LOT easier to get it through the strait of Gibraltar. And why would they even need to send it through the canal in secret?
RUMOR: Russia has declared the grounding of the Ever Given "An act of terror done during war".
I have not confirmed this rumor, (source not good enough yet) but it might be true and obviously Russia knows this was no accident.
The cost of this grounding is a whopping 3.6 trillion on an annual basis, not including damage done by having oil prices go stratospheric.
