The Kremlin has put the blame on Britain of “directing & coordinating” explosions on the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
The spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov said that, “Our intelligence services have data showing that British army specialists were directing & coordinating the attack.”
“There is a proof that Britain is being part in sabotage, in a terrorist attack on crucial energy infrastructure, not Russian, but international.”
He did not provide any information but insisted that the West should carefully analyze information about Russia.
He said, while adding that Russia would also consider further steps, “We expect that despite the unacceptable silence of the E.U. nations, this analysis will nevertheless be carried out.”
Meanwhile, London has rejected the accusations.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister of Britain, Rishi Sunak’s spokesman, said that, “The U.K. would not be get into distractions which are also part of the playbook of Russia.”
Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly on Monday said to the parliament that Russian allegations against the U.K. were increasingly detached from reality.
He said to the members of parliament, “They are designed to distract the people of Russia from the reality of failures of Russia on the battlefield.”
Blasts in September sent natural gas bubbling up from the pipelines on the Baltic Sea’s floor to the surface in a significant environmental disaster that has ratcheted up geopolitical tensions over energy supplies.
Moscow has put the blame on Western nations of being behind the blasts of the pipelines, built to supply Russian gas to Germany, but has not delivered any firm evidence.
At the same time, Ukraine & some Western countries have called the attacks sabotage and pointed the finger at Russia.
