Russia protests the lack of results of the investigation – RT in French
Russia has summoned the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden to protest against the “lack of results” in the investigation into the explosion that damaged the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in late September 2022.
“The ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden were summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry where they were made a strong protest against the total lack of results of the national investigations allegedly carried out by the authorities of these countries”, has indicated Russian diplomacy, eight months after the sabotage of these strategic pipelines built and financed by a Russian-Western consortium to transport gas from Russia to Europe.
The Russian Federation has repeatedly asked to be involved in the investigation, and Russian diplomacy has also denounced the “inability to guarantee the transparency” of the investigations.
“The fact that the German, Danish and Swedish authorities avoid any interaction with Russia in this case (…) is unacceptable”, added the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He accused the three countries of “not being interested in establishing the true circumstances of this sabotage”. “On the contrary, they are delaying their efforts and trying to hide the traces and the real culprits of this crime,” he said.
Russia ousted from investigation
President Vladimir Putin had denounced an act of “international terrorism” benefiting the United States, Ukraine and Poland.
THE New York Times claimed in early March, based on information from US intelligence, that a “pro-Ukrainian group” was behind the sabotage.
The UN Security Council had rejected a Russian resolution in March calling for the creation of an international commission of inquiry into sabotage, the United States denouncing an attempt to “discredit” the national investigations carried out by the countries concerned. .
