Did Biden give the order to destroy Putin’s Nord Stream pipeline? Bombshell report claims Navy divers carried out mission to kill Russia’s gas stranglehold on Europe in audacious mission overseen by president
- U.S. Navy divers planted C4 explosives that caused $500 million damage to Nord Stream pipelines between Russia and Germany, sensational report claims
- Report by Pulitzer Prize-winner Seymour Hersh details plot in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Europe’s dependence on gas from Moscow
- The White House and the CIA have denied claims the attack was carried out after nine months of secret planning overseen by President Joe Biden
Specialized U.S. Navy diving teams carried out the bombing attack against the underwater Nord Stream pipelines which supply Russian gas to western Europe during a top secret mission overseen by President Joe Biden, a bombshell report claims.
Divers planted C4 explosives on three Nord Stream pipelines in June 2022 which were detonated three months later using a sonar buoy which broadcast a signal that triggered the bombs, according to the report.
The attack was carried out in response to Vladamir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and designed to force Germany and other European nations to end their reliance on Russian gas, it is claimed. The move would also disrupt Moscow’s income from gas sales – which have contributed billions of dollars to its war effort.
The sensational report by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh, published to his Substack, cites a source ‘with direct knowledge of the operational planning’ behind the alleged plot.
Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were sabotaged by bomb blasts on September 26 2022 in an attack that, ostensibly, continues to baffle investigators. While analysts say the immediate impact of the attack was ‘limited’ – because the pipelines were not fully operational – the geopolitical consequences were huge.
Various theories have been floated for who carried out the attack, and how. Both the U.S. and Russia deny responsibility. A new report by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh cites a source who claims the Nord Stream blasts were a U.S. plot overseen by the President
The blasts happened on September 26, 2022. The report claims U.S. Navy divers planted them three months earlier, in June, before they were remotely detonated
The Nord Stream pipelines – which cost around $20 billion and took 15 years to construct – formed a key part of Europe’s energy infrastructure. It is claimed the U.S. carried out the attack in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and to curb Europe’s reliance on gas from Moscow
Russia, which has pointed the finger at the U.S., reportedly believes repairs will cost at least $500 million, but the Kremlin still hasn’t confirmed the pipes will be fixed. The Nord Stream project cost around $20 billion and took 15 years to construct.
In a compelling, 5,000-word report about the alleged attack, Hersh claims diving experts trained at the U.S. Navy Diving and Salvage Center in Florida planted the explosives.
The divers are said to have carried out the top secret and highly-dangerous operation during BALTOPS22, a series of military exercises in the Baltic Sea carried out by 16 NATO countries. The U.S. divers reportedly used the highly-publicized, 13-day event in June 2022 as cover for their top-secret mission.
The C4 explosives attached to the pipelines were fitted with sensors that enabled them to be detonated remotely at a later date, Hersh reports.
Hersh reports that the explosions were triggered by a sonar buoy dropped by an aircraft. The buoy emitted a sequence of ‘unique low frequency tonal sounds’, compared to those produced by a flute or piano, which triggered the C4.
A spokesman for the White House said the report is ‘false and complete fiction’. A spokesman for the CIA said: ‘This claim is completely and utterly false.’
Joe Biden reportedly oversaw the plot – but the White House and the CIA have said the report is ‘false’. Vladimir Putin has accused the U.S. of involvement in the attack
Thousands of tons of natural gas was released into the Baltic Sea after the blasts, causing a dangerous swell that disrupted shipping and triggered fears of an environmental catastrophe
