Russia Accuses UK Of ‘Directing’ Nord Stream Blasts

UK dismisses allegations as false, says they are aimed at diverting attention away from military failures in Ukraine.

A gas leak is seen along a section of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline
The ruptures on the Nord Stream pipelines have threatened to put the multibillion-dollar gas link permanently out of use.
Russia has again accused the United Kingdom of carrying out attacks on the Nord Stream undersea gas pipelines, with Moscow saying it is considering what “further steps” to take over the alleged acts of sabotage.

“Our intelligence services have data indicating that British military specialists were directing and coordinating the attack,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday, without providing any evidence to support his claim.

“Such actions cannot be put aside. Of course, we will think about further steps. It definitely cannot be left like this,” he added.

Peskov’s remarks came after Russia’s defence ministry said on Saturday that British navy personnel had blown up sections of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in September, when a series of ruptures caused major leaks, sending gas spewing out off the coast of Denmark and Sweden.
