US Navy planted explosions under Nord Stream – Seymour Hersh

WASHINGTON, US — The explosions of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines were orchestrated by the US. This is claimed by the famous American journalist Seymour Hersh, who conducted his own investigation into the sabotage.

The journalist, known for his publications on US crimes in Vietnam and during the wars in the Middle East, was able to obtain information about the sabotage from an unnamed source who was directly involved in the preparation of the operation.

According to Hersh, the explosives under the Nord Stream were planted by US Navy divers under the guise of NATO naval exercises. The Norwegian military activated the explosives when they received the relevant order.

As the journalist emphasizes, the decision to undermine the Northern Streams was agreed upon and approved personally by US President Joe Biden. For more than nine months, the head of the White House discussed this issue with his inner circle, after which he still gave the green light to carry out sabotage.

Hersh believes that the key issue during the months-long discussions between Biden and his aides about sabotage was the concealment of possible evidence of sabotage. Naturally, now the US administration and the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] deny that they were involved in blowing up gas pipelines.

Interestingly, soon after the sabotage, the discussion of the Nord Stream explosions disappeared from the agenda of interaction between Western leaders, and the number of discussions on this issue in the US and European media space also sharply decreased.
