Die Zeit sobre el ataque a Nord Stream:

The newspaper reports, referring to German investigators, that a company, based in Poland and belonging to two Ukrainians, would have rented the ship used in the attack on the gas pipelines.

German investigators have identified the vessel that allegedly participated in the attack on the Nord Stream gas pipelines in September last year, reports this Tuesday Die Zeit, noting that “the tracks lead in the direction of Ukraine”.

According to the German newspaper, it is presumed that a company, which is based in Poland and “apparently it belongs to two Ukrainians”, he chartered the boat used in the attack.

Die Zeit reports that the operation was probably carried out by 5 men and a woman, that is, by “a captain, two divers, two assistant divers and a doctor who had to transport the explosives to the crime scene and place them there.” The perpetrators, whose nationality is unknown, are reported to have used fake passports during the mission.

However, the newspaper reiterates that it is still there is no information about who ordered to blow up the gas pipelines.

The researchers maintain that the team left on September 6, 2022 from the German city of Rostock, located in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Subsequently, the vessel was detected in the Wieck auf dem Darß municipality, in the same German federal state and on the Danish island of Christiansø. “According to the investigation, the investigators were able to detect traces of explosives on the table in the cabin,” the article states.

Reports indicate that the secret service of a Western country warned its European colleagues in the autumn that “a Ukrainian team was responsible for the destruction” of the gas pipelines. “It is said that later there were other intelligence clues that indicated that a pro-Ukrainian group could be responsible,” the publication highlights.

Earlier on Tuesday, The New York Times had reported, citing US officials, that new intelligence suggested a pro-Ukrainian group was responsible for the explosion of the Nord Stream gas pipelines. The data does not detail who was part of the group that attacked the pipelines, or who directed the operation or paid for it, while officials left open “the possibility that the operation could have been carried out unofficially by a ‘proxy’ force.” with connections to the Ukrainian government or its security services”.

The people consulted indicated that there is no evidence that the Russian authorities were involved in the attack. At the same time, they stressed that no American or British citizen was involved in the sabotage of the gas pipelines.

  • Legendary journalist Seymour Hersh, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1970, published an article on February 8 alleging that US Navy divers planted the explosives under the Nord Stream pipelines in June 2022. According to a source familiar with the matter, the operation was carried out under the cover of NATO exercises BALTOPS 22.
