US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at one of the briefings, he publicly voiced the motives of the American authorities and the North Atlantic Alliance for the destruction of “Nordic streams“. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.
According to her, Blinken accused Russia of using energy resources as a weapon. At the same time, the US Secretary of State recalled that Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 did not supply gas to the EU countries at the time of the accident, Zakharova said.
As noted by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Moscow has been continuously providing Europe with blue fuel for many years. She added that Washington, after the emergency at Nord Stream, has become the leading supplier of reduced natural gas to the EU.
“Blinken openly, without hesitation, spoke about the presence of the United States and its NATO partners in the motives for the destruction of gas pipelines,” the diplomat stressed.
Former press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov called the Nord Stream incident an unprecedented act of state terrorism. He demanded a thorough investigation of pipeline accidents.
