Nord Stream pipeline, Russia does not believe in the CIA: it is an attempt at misdirection

The mystery of the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline is enriched with new elements. First, Germany confirmed that it had located and searched a vessel in January that may be linked to the sabotage of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. The vessel may have been used to deliver explosives. This was reported by dpa, citing the public prosecutor’s office in Karlsruhe. No other data was provided, neither about the ownership of this vessel nor about the search results. Meanwhile, the Kremlin rejected press rumors that a “pro-Ukrainian group” was behind last year’s sabotage of Russian gas pipelines Nord Stream 1 and 2, calling it an attempt to “divert ‘Attention'” . Based on information obtained from US intelligence, the New York Times did, in fact, attribute responsibility for the sabotage to a pro-Ukrainian group, but without the involvement of President Volodymyr Zelensky. “It is clear that the perpetrators of the attack want to divert attention,” said President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitri Peskov. ». Peskov therefore called for an “urgent transparent investigation” and insisted that Russia also become involved in the international investigation into the sabotage of the two key gas pipelines. “We are not yet allowed to participate in the investigation. Just a few days ago, we received indications about this from Denmark and Sweden.” As for Ukraine, Defense Minister Oleksyi Reznikov assured that Kiev was not involved in the explosions that damaged gas pipelines at the end of last September.

And, following the New York Times revelations about the pro-Ukraine group, Kiev also reiterates that it had nothing to do with the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline. “It’s none of our business, it would be a compliment to our special forces, but we have nothing to do with it,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said on the sidelines of an informal meeting of EU colleagues to which he was invited. . According to the same newspaper, it does not appear that President Volodymyr Zelensky was aware of the action that took place in the Baltic Sea at the end of September.
