Pentagon chief Austin refuses to “guess” who is to blame for “accident” at Nord Stream

WASHINGTON, September 30 – RIA Novosti. Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin said on Thursday that the United States would not speculate on who was responsible for the “accident” on the Nord Stream gas pipeline, insisting instead on the need to wait for the results of the final investigation.

“Regarding the damage to the pipeline … Obviously, there is a lot of speculation about this, but until the official investigation is complete, no one can pinpoint exactly what happened there,” Austin said. He held a joint press conference with his Filipino counterpart.

On Monday, there were simultaneous terrorist attacks on two of Russia’s gas pipelines exporting to Europe. According to information from Danish and Swedish authorities, two gas leaks were detected in the Nord Stream and one in Nord Stream 2 near the island of Bornholm. Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not exclude targeted sabotage.

The Russian side formally requested information from Denmark about the emergency in the Nord Stream as soon as the incident occurred. Danish authorities reported the explosions at the site of the gas leak to Russia. Nord Stream operator Nord Stream AG reported that the emergency on gas pipelines is unprecedented and it is impossible to predict the timing of repairs.

Nord Stream’s work has been suspended since the end of August due to problems in repairing Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions. But the pipeline remained full of gas. Nord Stream 2, which was completed in 2021 but never put into operation, is already gas-filled.

The Attorney General’s Office launched a case regarding the international terrorist act after the damage to the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines.
