Now they even talk about it with pleasure, the head of Russian diplomacy noted in an interview broadcast on the Rossiya 24 Channel on Sunday.
Lavrov added that the Joe Biden administration carried out acts of sabotage with the aim of destroying the alliance based on Russia’s energy resources and Germany’s technology, as it began to threaten the monopoly position of many US corporations.
An investigation by US Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed that US military divers placed explosive charges under gas pipelines during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Baltops drills in June 2022.
Three months later, on September 26, according to the prominent columnist, members of the Norwegian Army activated the explosives, causing serious damage to the pipelines that connect Russia with Germany at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.
Hersh stressed that President Biden approved the sabotage after more than nine months of secret discussions with his national security team.
