Russia Diplomat is Unsurprised by Seymour Hersh’s Article on Nord Stream Attack
On February 9, 2023, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that he was unsurprised by the investigation on the Nord Stream gas pipelines conducted by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh. He stated that Russian authorities always suspected the US was involved in this bombing.
“As far as Seymour Hersh’s investigation is concerned, of course, we have studied his publication thoroughly and attentively. It contains nothing sensational or unexpected to us,” he stated. “We assumed the involvement of the US and at least some of Washington’s NATO allies in this outrageous crime, which was an armed attack on a key element of critical infrastructure,” Ryabkov added.
The sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines would generally be considered as an act of war directed against Germany on the part of the US and the other state actors who assisted it. However, logic goes out the window when foreign policy leaders in the West are entranced by neoconservative/neoliberal interventionist foreign policies.
On top of that, the Russo-Ukrainian conflict represents a golden opportunity for the boosters of American hegemony to extend the US’s reach over European affairs. By knocking out the Nord Stream pipelines, the US has now rendered Germany more dependent on it for its energy needs. Like many other EU nations, Germany will need to rely on more expensive liquified natural gas now that it has been fully cut off from Russian gas sources. It also doesn’t help that green fanaticism has swept across Germany which has destroyed any semblance of energy sovereignty.
All things considered, the US national security state is a big winner in this geopolitical struggle, now that it has Europe totally under its thumb in both defense and energy affairs. A once respectable sovereign region is now a mere satrapy of the Globalist American Empire.
A pathetic fate for the Old Continent.
