The Russian Foreign Ministry made a strong protest to the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden in connection with the investigations into sabotage at the Nord Stream, carried out by the authorities of these countries and so far not leading to any results. Information about the course of the investigation is being hidden from Moscow, while Berlin, Copenhagen and Stockholm evade interaction with the Russian side. Maybe Poland or Ukraine. Responsible for undermining Nord Stream are being sought in the West Neither Europe nor NATO wants to know the truth by investigating the sabotage at Nord Stream, they report… 03 April 23:56
“The lack of interest of the mentioned countries in establishing the true circumstances of this sabotage was stated. On the contrary, by their actions they are clearly dragging out time and trying to hide the traces of the true perpetrators of the crime, which, as we think, are well-known countries, ”the Russian diplomatic service said in a statement.
Simultaneously with the delay in the investigation, “unbelievable versions” are leaking to the media, which are dumped “with a desire to confuse the situation.”
The ministry indicates that they have not received any responses to Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin’s message sent to the heads of Germany, Denmark and Sweden back in October, in which he calls for a comprehensive and open investigation with the participation of representatives of the Russian authorities and PJSC Gazprom. The notes of the Russian embassies on this score were also ignored.
On May 22, the German Prosecutor General’s Office announced that it was continuing the investigation into sabotage, but so far could not provide reliable data about their organizers.
“The identity of the perpetrators and their motives are the subject of an ongoing investigation. At present, it is impossible to make unequivocal statements as to whether this was carried out under the control of any state. As part of the investigation, all evidence is worked out to establish the facts. At present, it is impossible to provide additional data, ”a representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office in Karlsruhe, Germany, told TASS.
“No special service is able to”
Member of the European Parliament from Germany Gunnar Beck said that the European Union simply will not allow a real investigation into sabotage, since it does not intend to repair gas pipelines. Most EU countries are not autonomous entities in the international arena, and the German authorities have the least autonomy, which have obligations to the United States and are limited in their actions by both NATO and the EU, he stressed. A one-day company with Ukrainian roots. New data appeared in the Nord Stream explosion case At least two Ukrainians may be involved in the explosions on the Nord…
“The German government has certain obligations both to the United States and to NATO and the EU. Add to this also the internal political conditions in the country,” Beck said.
The head of the Federal Intelligence Service of Germany, Bruno Kahl, in turn, expressed confidence that not a single intelligence service in the world is now able to establish who staged the explosion.
He added that the difficulty in the investigation is added due to the fact that the pipelines are located deep under water, at the bottom of the sea.
Biden and the Ukrainian agency
On September 26, 2022, explosions near the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea damaged three of the four lines of two pipelines. Incidents are being investigated by law enforcement agencies in Denmark, Sweden and Germany. Artists and customers have not yet been named.
In February, the American journalist Seymour Hersh, citing sources, said that the US intelligence services were behind the gas pipeline blast, and the bombs were planted in the summer of 2022 under the cover of NATO Baltops exercises. The order to blow up the branches was allegedly given personally by President Joe Biden.
In March, a different version was voiced in the Western media: the blame was placed on a certain “pro-Ukrainian group” that had nothing to do with either the US intelligence services or official Kyiv.
In May, the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote that at least two Ukrainians could be involved in the explosions. According to the publication, German investigators a few months ago stumbled upon the Polish travel agency Feeria Lwowa, which belongs to two Ukrainian women. This company rented the Andromeda yacht, which the media associated with undermining gas pipelines.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly stated that the country is not involved in undermining the Nord Streams, and false information about the “Ukrainian trace” is being published in order to slow down the military support provided to Kiev.
The total economic damage from blowing up the Nord Streams could amount to more than $1.4 trillion, the Expert magazine calculated. We are talking about damage from destroyed infrastructure, frozen investments in field development, construction and modernization of main gas pipelines and lost revenue for 50 years, that is, during the nominal life of the gas pipeline.
Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said the day before that the United States should pay for the undermining of Nord Stream. “Also let them reimburse. Although it is still possible to talk about evidence there,” he admitted, pointing out that “this process has not yet been completed, and this page has not been closed.”
