White House denies US Navy's involvement in blowing up Nord Stream 2
The White House on Wednesday categorically rejected information that US Navy divers, under the cover of the Baltops exercise, had planted explosive devices beneath Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline last June.
"This is utterly false and complete fiction," White House National Security Council Spokesperson Adrienne Watson told TASS in reply to a request to comment on the abovementioned version, which had been previously voiced by an unnamed source to US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh.
In his article, Hersh wrote that the decision on the operation was made personally by US President Joe Biden after nine months of discussions with administration officials dealing with national security: US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland, and others.
Nord Stream AG reported that three threads of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 offshore gas pipelines had suffered unprecedented damage on September 27. Swedish seismologists later revealed that two explosions had been recorded along the Nord Stream pipelines on September 26. After that, investigators from Russia’s Federal Security Service initiated an probe into this act of international terrorism in connection with the explosions.
