US 'Lying' About Nord Stream Expose - Moscow

• by RT

Attempts by the US State Department to brush off Seymour Hersh's article about the sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines as "nonsense" are overt lies that display shocking ignorance of American history, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Friday.

The veteran investigative journalist reported on Wednesday that the US was behind the destruction of the Baltic Sea pipelines in September 2022. American divers planted charges under the cover of a NATO exercise, and a Norwegian airplane detonated them remotely when the time came, Hersh wrote.

"It would not be typical for us to engage allies and partners on something that is utter and complete nonsense," State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Thursday, answering a question about Hersh's article.

Zakharova said she was astonished by Price's audacity to call "nonsense" what US President Joe Biden and Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland openly described as their preferred outcome.
