European Officials Blame Sabotage for Gas Leaks in Nord Stream Pipelines from Russia to Germany

In 2018 during his speech to the UN General Assembly President Donald Trump lodged a warning to Germany about their country’s reliance on Russian energy.

The German delegation laughed on camera at the remarks.

Now Germany’s economy is tanking and Russia is in complete control of its energy as winter approaches.

On Monday Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline from Russia to Germany lost all pressure from 300 to 7 bars.

The cause is unknown.

German citizens are facing a very cold winter ahead.

Then this happened…

Via Disclose TV – Following the pressure drop in Nord Stream 2, a pressure drop has now also been recorded in both lines of Nord Stream 1, the operator says.

Last night German officials suggested the pressure drops may have been a targeted attack.

This morning the Europeans blamed the leaks on sabotage.

FOX Business reported:

Unprecedented leaks in the Nord Stream energy pipelines connecting Russia to Germany were likely the result of sabotage, Germany argued Tuesday.

The Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipeline systems suffered three leaks in a single day on Tuesday, though neither pipeline was operating at the time. The damaged offshore pipelines lay at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

Neither of the pipelines was operating at the time of the damage, however. Nord Stream 1 had been operating at just 20% capacity since July and stopped service entirely at the end of August. Operators stated that international sanctions against Russia had made maintenance impossible.

Nord Stream 2, meanwhile, has never entered official operation as Germany declined to certify its completion last year. The project was stopped altogether just days ahead of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
