Which State Actor Took Out the Nord Stream Pipelines?

German authorites claim the estimated use of 500 kilograms of TNT on the Nord Stream piplelines means it must have been a state actor.

The damaged, leaking pipelines supplying Europe with natural gas are now ruined with corrosive sea water after two underwater blasts on Sept. 26.

Natural gas prices in Europe rose almost 30% after the explosions. Interesting timing that a new Norway-Poland pipeline opened on Sept. 27.

Hungary is the only EU member state still receiving Russian gas.

Everyone is denying responsibility so far, but we do know who boasted about destroying the pipelines.

Victoria Nuland, who helped start this whole Ukraine mess, said in January, “If Russia invades Ukraine, one way or another, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.”

Joe Biden followed up in February, “If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”

Last week, Stephan Weil, the Prime Minister of the German federal state of Lower Saxony, said, “There will be no energy partnership with Russia in the future,” even after Putin is gone.

Vladimir Putin could have onsidered Nord Stream expendable, after India and China have been importing record volumes of sweet Russian crude.

The EastMed natural gas pipeline deal slated for 2025 completion, could have supplied Europe from Israel, but was killed by the Biden Administration earlier this year before the Ukraine War. (see map below)

However Israel, Egypt and the European Union signed a new deal in July that will ship Israeli gas through Egypt’s pipeline and then on to Europe by ship.

So Europe could have felt they didn’t need Russian gas anymore.

But if Biden’s handlers blew up the Nord Stream and killed the EastMed deal, are they trying to take down Europe along with Russia, and failing at both?
