MOSCOW, 15 February. — On February 22, Russia will convene a meeting of the UN Security Council to consider the sabotage of US Navy divers on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, which was reported by newspaper sources a few days ago.

This was announced on Wednesday by the Russian Foreign Ministry, indicating that the first deputy representative of Russia to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, was entrusted in connection with new information about explosions in the branches of the Nord Stream gas pipeline. . . demand the convening of the Security Council.

According to the note, the special session of the UN General Assembly on the situation in Ukraine will also resume its work, at which a vote on the anti-Russian resolution is expected, the LP specified.

The call to the Security Council came after Seymour Hersh, an American investigative journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, published an op-ed on February 8 in which he assured that US Navy divers planted explosive devices under Russian gas pipelines during the latest Baltops maneuvers. in June 2022, which were subsequently blown up.

An unidentified source, PL recalled, told him that the idea of ​​the sabotage came from United States President Joe Biden, who feared that Germany would not support arms supplies to Ukraine, given what he called “dependence on Germany.” on Russian gas.

White House National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson called the information released by Hersh “false and complete fabrication” but provided no evidence to the contrary.

On this occasion, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that Moscow disagrees with claims that it does not have the authority to investigate explosions that damaged the gas infrastructure of a Gazprom subsidiary last September in the Baltic Sea, and warned that his country will demand that the UN find a way to investigate the situation with the Nord Stream gas pipeline, reports Russia Today.

At a meeting with representatives of the foreign press, Lavrov referred to the material of an American journalist, according to which the purpose of explosions on gas pipelines was “to prevent Germany from sitting out in a comfortable energy zone.”

“Just like years ago they discovered that the National Security Agency (USA) was listening (bugging) Angela Merkel’s phone – a fact that did not require investigation and recognized by everyone – and the German chancellor behaved, not like the leader of the main country of the European Union, and as the head of the government of the occupied power, this is being repeated now in an even more vivid form,” Lavrov said.

“Germany was not just humiliated, it was put in its place, in the place of a US satellite that will decide whether Germany can guarantee its economic development and meet the social needs of its citizens through the use of gas from the gas pipeline, which Germany itself has already paid for,” he said. He.

On another occasion, Lavrov lamented that since September last year, the Russian authorities had received no response from Sweden or Denmark related to the investigation of explosions on Russian gas pipelines, and revealed that, despite the fact that his country’s ambassadors remind the prime ministers of both countries once a month, Moscow still does not receive notifications, even the most basic ones, about whether their requests have even been received.

The Russian Foreign Minister called this attitude “rude” and said he saw it as a “complete failure” of attempts to settle the responsibility of the West, led by the United States, in organizing this terrorist attack.
