Nord Stream Sabotage
The Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, which delivered energy to Germany from Russia, were hit by explosions in September 2022. In February, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh alleged that the explosions were organized by the US with the support of Norway.

ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) - Russia will continue using any available legal mechanisms to bring to justice those responsible for the Nord Stream explosions, although obtaining justice from international judicial bodies is unlikely, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday.
"We will, of course, continue to use all available legal mechanisms to bring perpetrators to justice, but the chances of achieving this on the platforms of international judicial bodies are slim," Medvedev said at the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum.
He also noted that attempts were made to blame Russia for the blasts, while it was the country's rights that had been violated to a large extent.
"Contrary to the obvious facts, which point to the involvement of radical groups, European countries have conveniently forgotten their obligations under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Convention against Terrorist Bombings," Medvedev said.
The Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines - built to deliver gas under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany - were hit by explosions last September and rendered partially dysfunctional. The incident remains under investigation by Denmark, Germany and Sweden, as well as separately by Russia.
Russia considers the explosions at the two pipelines an act of international terrorism. There are no official results of the investigation yet, but Pulitzer Prize-winning US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh published a report in February 2023, alleging the explosions had been organized by the United States with the support of Norway. Washington has denied any involvement in the incident.
