Poland: former ministry 'thanks' US after Nord Stream

Russian Foreign Ministry reacts

28 September, 12:54
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 28 - Former Polish foreign minister and current European Parliament member Radoslav Sikorski appears to have implied the involvement of the US in the Nord Stream pipeline incidents by tweeting a photo of the accident site with the caption "Thank you, USA." Sikorski went on to say that "there is no shortage of pipeline capacity for transporting gas from Russia to Western Europe, including Germany." Nordstream's only logic was for Putin to be able to blackmail or wage war on Eastern Europe with impunity." The words of Sikorski caused a stir on Twitter, the public Polish television reported.

The Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reacted to his tweet, by asking if Sikorski's position was "an official statement on this being a terrorist attack." Subsequently, Sikorski replied on Twitter by saying that "all Ukrainian and Baltic sea states have opposed Nordstream's construction for 20 years. Now 20 billion-dollars of scrap metal lies at the bottom of the sea, another cost to Russia of its criminal decision to invade Ukraine. Someone, did a special maintenance operation," he added, replying on Twitter to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. (ANSA).
