Nord Stream Pipeline Damage May Be Irreparable

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Earlier this week, Russian natural gas pipelines Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 suffered attacks that were clearly sabotaged.  Making matters worse, is that the damage sustained might be irreparable, Germany’s Tagesspiegel reported on Wednesday, citing government circles.”

If the damage is not repaired quickly enough, too much salty sea water could run into the pipes lying at the bottom of the Baltic Sea and irreversibly corrode them. That’s according to German officials who have warned repairs on the pipelines must begin immediately. Denmark said on Wednesday that its authorities would be able to launch a probe into the issue no sooner than in a week or two due to safety concerns,” Tagesspiegel added according to RT. 

The media outlet does not mention any plans for repair work by Russia or Germany. A group of senior German MPs quickly pointed the finger at Russia and blame Moscow for the incident. “An attack on the energy supply infrastructure is intended to spread fear and terror,” Roderich Kiesewetter, a German MP, and spokesman for crisis prevention for the Conservative Union parliamentary group told the RND media group. 

While no ruling class is taking responsibility for the attack yet, and no matter who has done it, it’ll be used as an excuse to further war. “Therefore, it is likely that Russia is trying … to stir up uncertainty among the European population” and supposedly demonstrate its ability to attack critical infrastructure, he added, accusing Moscow of employing a “state terrorism” approach.

The EU vowed “the strongest possible response” to any attacks on its active energy infrastructure but stopped short of naming any suspects in the Nord Stream incident. Russia branded the incident a “terrorist attack” and said it would summon a United Nations Security Council meeting over it.

The Kremlin has denounced as “stupid and absurd” any allegations of it being behind the suspected explosions of the Nord Stream natural gas pipelines earlier this week, stating that the incident actually creates many issues for Russia. Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov explained that the damage to the pipelines posed a “big problem” for Russia as it had essentially lost its gas supply routes to Europe, according to a report by RT. 

Peskov added that “this gas is very expensive and now it is all going up in the air.”

Peskov also reminded the media of U.S. President Joe Biden’s statements from early February, when he threatened to “bring an end” to Nord Stream 2. “What the US president meant by that, we don’t know,” admitted the Kremlin official, but highlighted the borderline insane hysterical-euphoric reaction of Polish officials who have already thanked Washington for sabotaging the pipeline.

The only thing that seems certain is that war is spreading and our future is looking bleak. Russia is unlikely to just let this go and not retaliate in some way.
