Russian Foreign Ministry: Nord Stream accidents occurred in the US intelligence zone Maria Zakharova explained that the accidents occurred in the exclusive economic zones of Denmark and Sweden, and these are “NATO-centric countries” that are completely under the control of US intelligence
Accidents at the Nord Stream gas pipelines and Nord Stream 2 took place in a zone controlled by American special services, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on the air of Solovyov.Live.
“[Sweden and Denmark, whose special economic zones have been leaked]— these are the most NATO-centric countries. These are the countries that are stuffed with American weapons, these are the very countries that are completely controlled by the American special services, are absolutely and definitely under the control of the special services of the United States of America, which are completely— I emphasize, completely— control the situation there, — she is convinced.
In response to Vladimir Solovyov’s question about whether Moscow was ready to blame the United States for what had happened, Zakharova said: “Here we are not talking about readiness, here we are talking about the beginning of a big job.”
< p>The incident, which became known on September 26, resulted in at least four leaks on both pipes. The Kremlin has not previously ruled out that sabotage could lead to accidents. Seismologists in Denmark and Sweden, in whose exclusive economic zones damage was recorded, reported powerful explosions in the area of the incident.
The Russian Embassy in the United States stated the need for a thorough and objective investigation of the accidents and noted that the destruction of Russian gas pipelines is beneficial for Washington. The diplomatic mission also recalled the American warships that were at the site of damage to Russian infrastructure the day before the incident, and the promise of United States President Joe Biden to “put an end” to Nord Stream 2 in case of “invasion” Russia to Ukraine.
The words of the American leader were also recalled by the representative of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov. After that, the White House clarified that Biden promised not to destroy Nord Stream 2, but only to prevent its commissioning. Zakharova found this indication unconvincing: in her opinion, in the words of the representatives of the American administration, “there was a clear threat from official Washington, including one reinforced by the president's statement about the termination of this project.”

Former Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski posted a photo from the scene on Twitter after the accident on gas pipelines and wrote: “Thank you, USA.” Zakharova, in response, asked if these words could be interpreted as an official statement about a terrorist attack.
After the emergency, the German publication Spiegel reported, citing sources, that a few weeks earlier, the US CIA had warned Berlin about potential attacks on gas pipelines in the Baltic sea.
