Russia Calls New York Times Report On Nord Stream Attack ‘Deliberate Disinformation’

Russia claims that the New York Times report about a ‘pro-Ukraine group’ being responsible for the Nord Stream pipeline attack is a deliberate form of disinformation.

They said their aim was to distract from the fact that the US was responsible for the blasts.

According to the NYT a “pro-Ukrainian group” had sabotaged the pipelines, using a team with as few as six people involved in the mission.

The report explicitly stated that no Americans or Brits were involved in the attack.

Summit news reports: A few hours later, German media outlets reported that the vessel involved in the plot, a yacht, had been identified as being rented from a Poland-based company which belonged to a pair of Ukrainians.

The reports contradicted the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who wrote last month that the pipelines were destroyed by the US as part of a covert operation.

According to Hersh’s sources, the explosives were planted in June 2022 by US Navy divers under the guise of the BALTOPS 22 NATO exercise and were detonated three months later with a remote signal sent by a sonar buoy.

One source told Hersh that the plotters knew the covert operation was an “act of war,” with some in the CIA and State Department warning, “Don’t do this. It’s stupid and will be a political nightmare if it comes out.”

Russia reacted to the New York Times report by dismissing it as a propaganda ploy designed to obfuscate the truth.

“I wonder who allows such leaks, filling the media scene with them?” asked Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. “The answer is: those who do not want to conduct an investigation in the legal field and are going to divert the attention of the audience from the facts in every possible way.”

Andrey Ledenev, Minister Counselor of the Russian Embassy in the United States, said the report served to protect the true culprits behind the attack.

“We have no faith in the “impartiality” of the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence. We perceive anonymous “leaks” as nothing more than an attempt to confuse those who are sincerely trying to get to the bottom of things in this egregious crime. Shift the blame from the statesmen who ordered and coordinated the attacks in the Baltic Sea to some abstract individuals,” Ledenev said.

Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said the New York Times story had “instantly got a ‘green light’ in the local information field” and was intended to distract from the facts presented in Hersh’s piece.

“Obviously, those who have masterminded the [Nord Stream] attack want to divert attention. Obviously, this is a coordinated media hoax campaign,” he asserted.

  1. The fake commander in chief would be the person who should be held responsible for that and not the American people.
    We the People would gladly ship him to you Mr. Putin.

  2. You’re so awesome! I don’t believe I have read a single thing like that before. So great to find someone with some original thoughts on this topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  3. The apples always symbolic of Satan’s deceits. In your face too. But PEOPLE ARE stupid They just don’t think They comply.

  4. OK That’s war declared. Beware the ides if March. The events that have happened over the last week have been declarations of war and Russia announcing the Jesuit Generals Head Office as “source of disinformation” is the highest level of confrontation. Its war.

  5. The “NY Times” is not called “The Toilet Paper of Record” for no reason. If they printed a story saying the sun was in the sky, I’d go outside to check. Seriously.

  7. ” If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine again, there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.

    I promise you: We will be able to do it.”
