Ukraine has denied any involvement in last year’s attack on the Nord Stream pipelines, following a media report citing new intelligence that a pro-Ukrainian group was to blame.
There was no evidence that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy or other Ukrainian government officials were behind the attacks which spewed natural gas into the Baltic Sea, the New York Times reported, citing U.S. officials.
The Sep 26 explosions on the pipelines connecting Russia and Germany occurred in the exclusive economic zones of Sweden and Denmark. Both countries have concluded the blasts were deliberate, but have not said who might be responsible.
The U.S. and NATO have called the pipeline attacks “an act of sabotage,” while Moscow has blamed the West. Neither side has provided evidence, Reuters said.
