NATO says there is no information about the perpetrators of explosions at Nord Stream


NATO does not have information about who is to blame for the explosions of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. This was announced on March 8 by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“We know that there was an attack on the Nord Stream pipelines, an act of sabotage, but we have not been able to identify who is behind this. We also know that this confirms the importance of protecting our critical underwater infrastructure,” he told reporters at an informal meeting of NATO military heads.

So Stoltenberg commented on the fact that on March 7, the American edition of The New York Times published material that indicated the possible involvement of a pro-Ukrainian group in the attack on Nord Stream. It follows from the material that some US officials believe that Ukraine and its allies had the most logical potential motive for attacking the pipelines.

Later, The Times pointed to the awareness of the Western intelligence services about the presence of a Ukrainian trace in the situation with the explosions of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. As the authors of the article write, NATO countries have done everything possible to prevent public disclosure of Ukraine’s connection with sabotage on pipelines, as this would naturally lead to a deterioration in relations between Kiev and Berlin.

US journalist Seymour Hersh called The New York Times article about the involvement of Ukrainians in the attack on the joint venture stupid. The journalist learned about the article during a conversation with Izvestia. He also told Izvestia that he would publish a new Nord Stream investigation next week.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that publications about explosions at Nord Stream are coordinated stuffing. He also expressed bewilderment how the American officials referred to by the media, without an investigation, can assume something about the terrorist attacks on the Nord Stream.

Leaks at Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 were discovered in September 2022. The representative of the seismic center of Sweden, Bjorn Lund, said that two powerful underwater explosions were registered in the area of ​​​​leaks in pipelines at the time of the emergency. Traces of explosives were found at the crash site. The Russian Federation called the incident an act of state terrorism.
