WSJ reported that NATO said that a series of leaks on the Nord Stream pipelines between Russia and Europe were the result of sabotage. They said that attacks on its members’ infrastructure would be met with a collective response from the military alliance.
“NATO is committed to deter and defend against hybrid attacks,” he wrote. “Any deliberate attack against Allies’ critical infrastructure would be met with a united and determined response.”
At a NATO meeting Wednesday evening, Danish officials claimed the pipelines were damaged by two explosions on Monday, each with the force of about 1,100 pounds of TNT, officials familiar with the discussions said, WSJ reports.
They presented no proof and came to this decision very quickly.
“The North Atlantic Council, which consists of representatives from all 30 NATO governments, didn’t name a culprit behind the Baltic Sea leaks, though officials in several member countries have already attributed the destruction to Russia, without providing evidence.”
No proof given! No investigation either!
Russia denied involvement and said that NATO has more involvement in the Baltic.
“This area is the Baltic Sea. There were many more aircraft, ships or other marine vehicles from NATO countries there,” Putin’s spokesperson Dimitry Peskov said. “So, these reports [of Russia’s involvement] are absolutely ridiculous…and biased.”
“The council didn’t say how it arrived at its assessment that the damage, which it said has caused environmental fallout and shipping disruptions,” reports WSJ.
“Several senior European diplomats said there was little serious doubt in capitals that Russia was behind the pipeline damage but that it was important to be absolutely certain given the implications of reaching that conclusion. During a meeting late Wednesday, NATO member countries said it was likely that Russia was responsible for the leaks, but most countries didn’t want to publicly mention their suspicions in the public statement without more evidence, these diplomats said.”
This smells like weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
EWW ENVIRONMENTAL FALLOUT !!! WHAT A FREAKING JOKE BIG WHUP IT KNOCK OUT SOME FISH. I USED TO WORK FOR A NATURAL GAS EXPLORATION COMPANY OUT OF ONTARIO CANADA WE DRILL NATURAL GAS WELLS IN WESTERN NEW YORK AND PENNSYLVANIA BACK IN THE 70’S THE COMPANY ALSO HAD DRILLING PLATFORMS IN LAKE ERIE ON THE CANADIAN SIDE OF THE LAKE SINCE IT WAS BANNED ON OUR SIDE. THING IS WHEN THE ICE GOT THICK IN THE WINTER SOMETIMES IT KNOCKED THE WELL HEADS OFF THE WELL ALOWING NATURAL GAS TO FLOW INTO THE LAKE. NO ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE AT ALL ONCE THE ICE MELTED IN THE SPRING A NEW WELL HEAD WAS PUT BACK ON THE WELLS.. NOW IF IT WAS OIL THAT’S AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT MATTER.
Those pipelines are owned by Gazprom, a Russian company, the world’s largest natural gas provider. It is inaccurate to call it NATO member infrastructure. (The electric lines to my house are not my infrastructure.) Large bombs have shrapnel contained in the sea easily identified for origin. Guilty parties avoid evidentiary analysis. NATO could easily gather and analyze evidence. To not produce any indicates deception (like our DOJ).
Why does communist, corrupt Europe, which claims to not want the gas, and supports the other side of the war, expect Russia to deliver them gas? Sanctions applied to Russia already broke contracts. NS2 was never on. NS1 was nearly shut down, and the EU did not complain about it.
NATO is a collection of “security arrangements” countries (some seemingly quiet and meek),as well as being exposed as a collaboration of sinister global leaders set on grabbing the world for themselves by putting into place strange new “policies” which escalated since the early 1940s. Seems like they overlooked the glaring fact that Joe Biden implicated himself in the sabotage, wanting to “punish the Russian people” and saying so in a filmed and documented speech.
Something very fishy going on here. I smell a rat…..
The ‘hot war’ IS their and biden/his handlers priority even if they are left ONLY with our ashes to rule over…as you already stated, smells like WMD’s…
