  1. Everything is very strange and suspicious about the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines 1 and 2... if you read this Kremlin communiqué published by on August 3 of this year, 57 days before the terrorist act.

  2. - Putin's comment comes at meeting with former German chancellor in Moscow

    Russian President Vladimir Putin told Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder that the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline could be activated if necessary, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov confirmed Wednesday.

    Speaking to reporters in the Russian capital Moscow, Peskov said the comment was made during Schroeder’s meeting with Putin in Moscow.

    According to Peskov, Schroeder, like many experts, expressed his concern over the energy crisis and demanded during his meeting with Putin that Russia issue a statement on its approach to energy developments.

    In response to Schroeder’s question on activating the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the event of a crisis, Putin replied that it is technically possible, although he said the project needs a lot of work for immediate use.

    Nonetheless, Peskov confirmed that it would not be possible for the Nord Stream 2 to operate at full capacity until the end of the year, even if it is commissioned today.

    'Only at half capacity, 27.5 billion cubic meters can be shipped, because the other half of the capacity is used for domestic consumption,' he said.

Seems like the peak of arrogance for Russia to know they would be assumed to have been behind this, but that the international community would almost have its hands tied if they didn't  have direct and clear evidence of it.
