The U.S. had data on Ukraine's alleged plans to blow up Nord Stream

Jun 7, 2023

In June 2022, the United States allegedly received intelligence about the alleged intentions of the Ukrainian military to carry out a secret operation to sabotage the Russian Nord Stream gas pipelines. This was reported by The Washington Post, citing a classified intelligence document.


WP writes that the document, which contains information from the intelligence service of one of the European countries (which one is not specified), was received by the publication from "a friend" of the American military officer Jake Teixeira. The document's source was information from an unnamed "person in Ukraine."

The United States could not confirm the veracity of these allegations, but the document was passed on through the Central Intelligence Agency of Germany and other European countries.

It is alleged that the document outlines details of a "covert attack" on Nord Stream using "a small team of divers who reported directly to the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces."

Officials with whom WP spoke confirmed that the document obtained by the publication "accurately reflects" what the intelligence of a European state reported to the CIA. At the request of its interlocutors, The Washington Post agreed not to name the European country, as well as some aspects of the plan outlined there.
