New link with Ukraine in Nord Stream sabotage case – Der Spiegel – RT World News

Email to hire boat allegedly used in pipeline attacks came from war-torn country, investigators say

Metadata from emails used to hire a yacht believed to have been involved in the explosions that damaged Nord Stream pipelines last year implicate Ukrainian nationals, German newspaper Der Spiegel reported on Friday, citing sources.

In March, the outlet claimed that a yacht named “Andromeda” was allegedly used by a team of divers to sabotage Nord Stream pipelines. The publication cites the discovery of traces of explosives in the cabin of the ship and false identity papers used to rent the boat.

The latest Der Spiegel report says the metadata of an email sent to inquire about the charter of the yacht “drove to Ukraine.” The chairman of an alleged front company through which the yacht was leased also lives in Kyiv, according to German broadcasters NDR and WDR, as well as other media sources in the EU country.

Der Spiegel also claimed on Friday that investigators were looking into whether the attack could have been undertaken by an independent group of Ukrainian commandos, or whether the sabotage was likely to have been authorized by Kiev. The Ukrainian government, meanwhile, has denied any connection to the explosions.

To date, no group – state body or otherwise – has accepted responsibility for the September explosions, which came shortly after Moscow cut gas supplies to Europe following the implementation of a wave of Western sanctions against Russia for its military operation in Ukraine.

In February, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh detailed in a detailed report evidence he said linked Washington to the attacks, which he said were carried out in tandem with Norwegian figures.

Moscow – which has been accused of orchestrating the blasts as a “false flag” event by some in the West – summoned the ambassadors of Germany, Sweden and Denmark on Thursday to protest what the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Foreign Affairs described as “complete lack of results” in an investigation into the source of the explosions.

“It has been noted that these countries are not interested in establishing the true circumstances of this sabotage,” The Moscow Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday, adding that investigators were delaying their efforts and trying to “hide tracks” real culprits.
