At the end of September 2022, a total of four leaks in the two pipelines were discovered after explosions near the Danish Baltic Sea island of Bornholm. On October 10, the Federal Public Prosecutor in Germany initiated preliminary proceedings against unknown persons. It is about the suspicion of intentionally causing an explosive explosion and anti-constitutional sabotage.
According to previous media research, several tracks are said to lead in the direction of Ukraine. It is about suspected letterbox companies and a person with possible connections to the Ukrainian military.
Now the “Washington Post“The CIA was informed by a European espionage agency in June 2022 that the Ukrainian military was planning an attack. Accordingly, a six-strong team of Ukrainian special forces wanted to sabotage the natural gas project between Russia and Germany.
CIA document released
The intelligence agency’s report has now been circulated via the Discord chat platform, allegedly by Jack Teixeira, a member of the Air National Guard. The Washington Post is said to have a copy provided by a friend of Teixeiras. Officials in several countries have already confirmed that the intelligence document released on Discord accurately reflects what the European agency told the CIA.
However, the report said the Ukrainian military operation was eventually “put on hold” for reasons that are still unclear.
According to the document, the Ukrainian participants wanted to rent a boat under false identities and use it to go to the pipelines and dive to the lines to plant explosive devices. According to German investigations, the Nord Stream explosion actually took place that way. Ukraine has so far denied this.
