United Nations, March 28 – A number of members of the UN Security Council expect Denmark, Germany and Sweden to urgently investigate the sabotage in Nord Stream – this was a positive outcome of the vote on the Russian resolution on Monday, Dmitry Polyansky, First Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN. In an interview with the News Agency.
On Monday, the UN Security Council did not adopt a Russian draft resolution calling for the creation of an international commission under the auspices of the United Nations to investigate sabotage in Nord Stream. It was only the Russian Federation, China and Brazil. The remaining members of the Security Council abstained from voting. Meanwhile, China, Belarus, North Korea, Syria, Eritrea, Nicaragua and Venezuela were sponsors of the Russian draft.
“Many members of the UN Security Council have clearly stated that they are in favor of a transparent and, I would say, expedited investigation. So there have been numerous references to the authorities of Denmark, Sweden and Germany to complete this investigation and inform the council about the concrete results,” said Polyansky.

On September 26, 2022, explosions occurred simultaneously on two gas pipelines for Russian exports to Europe – Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2. Germany, Denmark and Sweden did not exclude the occurrence of targeted sabotage. Nord Stream, operator of Nord Stream AG, stated that the state of emergency on the gas pipelines is unprecedented and it is impossible to estimate the repair time. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia initiated a case relating to an act of international terrorism. On 31 October, Russian President Vladimir Putin reported that Gazprom had been allowed to inspect the site of the explosion, and the company’s president, Alexei Miller, informed him about the inspection. Putin said that the explosion on the gas pipeline is a clear act of terrorism.
On February 8, the American journalist Seymour Hersh, who won the Pulitzer Prize, published his investigation of the Nord Stream explosions, in which he stated, citing a source, that explosive devices were planted under Russian gas pipelines in June 2022 under the cover of the Paltops maneuvers of the US Navy. Divers supported by Norwegian specialists. According to Hersh, the decision to launch the operation was taken by US President Joe Biden after nine months of discussions with administration officials concerned with national security issues. Later, the Pentagon told the News Agency that the United States had nothing to do with the bombing of Russian gas pipelines last year.
