In early February 2023, American journalist Seymour Hersh published an investigation into the Nord Stream explosions. It says that American divers planted bombs during the Baltops exercises in the Baltic Sea last June, and the Norwegians activated them. Washington’s motives, according to the journalist, were to force Germany to provide military and financial support to Ukraine. The US and Norway deny any involvement.

In particular, the US State Department rejected the results of the investigation of Hersh and his connection with Russia. His conclusions about sabotage on gas pipelines, the press secretary of the American department, Ned Price, called a blatant lie.

In turn, Denmark, Germany and Sweden prepared a joint statement of the permanent missions of the three countries to the UN. It states that the investigation into the terrorist attacks on gas pipelines has not been completed and the timing of its completion is still unknown.
