Putin says a government, not ‘pro-Ukrainian group,’ sabotaged Nord Stream pipelines
(Worthy News) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that the Nord Stream gas pipeline explosions were carried out on a “state level,” dismissing recent reports that a pro-Ukrainian group had carried out the blasts.
Putin described the reports by the New York Times and multiple German news outlets as “complete nonsense,” saying again that the U.S. could be behind the attack.
“One should always look for those who are interested. And who is interested? Theoretically, of course, the United States is interested,” Putin said in an interview with state television.
“An explosion of this kind, of this power, at this depth can only be carried out by specialists, and supported by the full power of the state, which has certain technologies,” he added. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
