Russian President Vladimir Putin believes the Nord Stream pipeline explosion was carried out by “specialists” working with those at the “state level.” The statement dismissed reports that a pro-Ukrainian group is responsible.
“An explosion of this kind, of this power, at this depth can only be carried out by specialists, and supported by the full power of a state in possession of certain technologies. “One should always look for those who have an interest (in achieving the given outcome). And who has such an interest? Theoretically, of course, the United States,” Putin added.
