Who WERE the yacht-sailing Nord Stream saboteurs? A ‘Ukrainian commando’ and ‘government-trained divers’ are suspected of blowing up Putin’s gas pipeline during a secret mission from a small boat, says CHRIS PLEASANCE
On September 26 last year, one of the most brutal and sophisticated attacks of the entire war in Ukraine took place with the destruction of the Nord Stream gas pipeline.
New intelligence leaks from the US and Germany reveal that suspicions have now fallen on a pro-Ukrainian sabotage group – reportedly including a “Ukrainian commando” and “government-trained divers.”
A flurry of reports last week said investigators have identified six saboteurs — five men and a woman — who may have planted explosives on the pipelines sometime in early September.
Leaks to the German press suggest the group planted the bombs using a yacht rented from a Polish firm owned by two Ukrainians.
