The German edition of Spiegel has published new details on the case of the terrorist attack on the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea. According to police sources, the yacht Andromeda, registered in the port of Brege on the island of Rügen, was used to transport explosive devices by saboteurs.
As specified, the 15 meter long yacht model “Bavaria Cruiser 50” was rented through a charter company on the island of Rügen. Spiegel posted a photo of the ship. According to the report, the yacht departed from the port of Rostock-Warnemünde and then moored for a short time in the port of Vik on the north coast of the island.
Earlier, Germany’s federal prosecutor’s office told RIA Novosti that it had searched an unnamed vessel for suspicious hire and possible use to transport explosive devices on the Nord Stream. However, there is no suspicion about the employees of the German company that leased the ship.
The New York Times reported that there was intelligence indicating that a pro-Ukrainian group was behind the closure of Russia’s main gas supply route to Europe. The German newspaper Zeit claims that the traces of the attack on the pipelines lead in the direction of Ukraine. According to the Times, Western countries know the name of the alleged Ukrainian “sponsor” of the Nord Stream sabotage.
As part of media reports on the possible perpetrators of the Nord Stream terrorist attack, the head of the German Ministry of Defense does not rule out that the explosions were a false flag operation.
The press secretary to the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, noted that the publications on Nord Streams could be a coordinated stuffing in the media in order to divert attention from the real events.
