Moscow, March 18 – American journalist Seymour Hersh said in an interview with Exxpress that he had additional information about the Nord Stream situation, but was unable to share it.
You are aware of what orders have been received. I know a lot more about this than I want to say. But I have to protect those who inform me.”
Hirsch added that he had no doubt that he was correct about the events described and derided the “pro-Ukrainian group” account.
In February, Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh published an article investigating the gas line explosions. According to his version, the sabotage was carried out by the United States with the help of NATO allies: in the summer, during the Baltops exercise, American divers mined pipelines, and three months later, the Norwegians detonated explosive charges.

As the journalist explained, the decision on the operation was made by Joe Biden after more than nine months of secret discussions with his national security team. The reason is the fear that Germany, which receives gas from Russia via Nord Stream, will not want to participate in military aid to Ukraine.
Later, many Western media immediately wrote that new intelligence data indicated that a certain pro-Ukrainian group was behind the sabotage, and that a Ukrainian businessman was its “sponsor”. The Kremlin described the posts as “coordinated stuffing” to divert attention.
