U.S. Blew Up Russian Gas Pipelines Nord Stream 1 & 2, Says Former Polish Defense Minister

In my opinion this was most likely an act of sabotage undertaken by the US AND their partners in Poland. I’m going to write more about this but for now..

A former Polish Defense Minister, Radek Sikorski, has attributed to the United States the sabotage of two pipelines, Nord Stream 1 and 2, which carry natural gas from Russia to Germany. “Thank you, USA,” Sikorski wrote on Twitter. Sikorski was Minister of National Defense from 2005 – 2007 and served as Deputy Minister of National Defense and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, previously. He is currently an elected member of the European parliament.

But President Joe Biden promised on February 7 to prevent Nord Stream 2 from becoming operational if Russia invaded Ukraine.

"If Russia invades,” said Biden, “then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2.

We will bring an end to it."

Reporter: “But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany’s control?”

Biden: "I promise you, we will be able to do that."


  • Sikorski is no Putin apologist (he definitely isn’t)
  • Sikorski is also married to Anne Applebaum, a journalist known for her hawkish views toward Russia.(She’s a neo con, in my opinion)
  • Der Spiegel has reported that the CIA warned (threatened?) Germany weeks ago of a coming attack on natural gas pipelines, Nord Stream 1 and 2.
  • Russia could have pulled off such the attack on the pipelines, but “It is difficult to see whether Russia or Ukraine could have an interest in such an incident.” (Russia doesn’t)
  • Indeed, Russia could have restricted natural gas flows like it did earlier this month when it blamed an oil leak as the excuse, without blowing up the pipelines. (As has already been stated here)

The pipelines were inactive. Russia had stopped delivery through them. It doesn't make sense to me they'd need to sabotage them,when for lack of a better term, these pipelines are OFF.

  • Russia has made no secret of its desire to continue supply Europe with natural gas. On September 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin denied Russia caused Europe’s energy crisis and said that if Europe wanted more natural gas it should lift the sanctions in the way of opening Nord Stream 2. “The bottom line is,” said Putin, “if you have an urge, if it’s so hard for you, just lift the sanctions on Nord Stream 2, which is 55 billion cubic metres of gas per year, just push the button and everything will get going.”

  • The sabotage of Nord Stream 1 and 2 came the day before Poland and Norway opened a new, 850-kilometer natural gas pipeline, Baltic Pipe, through Denmark. European leaders praised the pipeline as a much-needed alternative to Nord Stream 1 and 2. Norway Energy Minister Terje Aasland called Baltic Pipe “a milestone on the important path towards European independence”.

And Polish EU supremacy- With the US in charge. I’m on board with this idea. It makes the most sense to me. Saying Russia did this is absurdity taken to new heights. Or stupidity taken to new lows?

Just speculating, but this might open the path to Molotov–Ribbentrop 2 + Turkey. Only thing necessary now is for the Germans specifically to be humiliated and left to rot. This can cause a trauma which will disgust the German’s of all the social engineering they have been through.

Hey Kaz

“this might open the path to Molotov–Ribbentrop 2 + Turkey”

It may well! At this point in time, I don’t think there is too much that can be discounted.
The US looks intent on doing everything it can to annoy Turkey.
With Greece. Sanctioning the banking sector. PKK suicide bombers.

Someone alerted me to the “THE WOLFOWITZ DOCTRINE” About preempting other entities from becoming a greater power at regional level even.

I am not sure if you mentioned this in your blog.

Hey Kaz
I think, going on recall, information on the Wolfowitz doctrine may have been posted at my old blog years back.
However I found an article to post that should refresh the memory of us all- it does seem to be a relevant document
given the neo cons are still running the show

The annual NATO maneuvers Baltops took place in the Baltic Sea in early to mid-June. Under the command of the US 6th Fleet, 47 warships took part in the exercise this year, including the US fleet association around the helicopter carrier USS Kearsarge. Of particular note is a particular maneuver conducted by 6th Fleet’s Task Force 68 – a US Marines special-purpose Ordnance Disposal and Undersea Operations unit, the very unit that would be the first port of call for an act of sabotage of an underwater pipeline. As the specialist journal “Seapower” reported, in June of this year this very unit was busy with a maneuver off the island of Bornholm in which unmanned underwater vehicles were operated.

As luck would have it, exactly that task force around the USS Kearsarge was again in the sea area around Bornholm last week. The last publicly available position signal came from a position less than 10 nautical miles from Bornholm last Wednesday. Since then, the ships of the fleet association have switched off their automatic identification system AIS. Of course, they can still be located for the maritime surveillance of the neighboring countries. Is that the smoking gun?

This show all the tasks going on during the navy exercise and the screen dump here is from 21/9, the day ID transponders was switched off on all those navy ships.
Notice the two pink dots named “Gas Ref Dnw 23122” just top of the picture of the naval ship. That’s actually the positions of the two boom on the Nord Stream 1 gas line.
(I wish I could find the source of that screen dump. On my screen I can see a half pink dot at the position of the NS2 sabotage, bottom of the image).
This is the approved route of NS2 granted by the Danish Government.
Now, who would put a “secret” sabotage job on a map/chart
which can be accessed by the public?
I think, Joe for this time tell the truth, he would take care of the gas pipes and he did, but not in the way we all imagined from information available. That’s also why the US can say they did not do the “sabotage”, they did some kind of a stunt.
The US Navy was in the area beginning of June, beginning of September and from 21/9 and days ahead. No space for Russians.

Thank You again Tom!
I’m on board with the US being the reason these pipelines were blown.
It’s the only thing that really makes sense.
That said the images are very interesting to see.

That’s a gem! Dam google for censoring my blog like that!!
such a source of frustration for me- such a resource lost

Yah, I’ve been thinking about how much we see the Eastern Med in play right now! And reminded of this and other previous work

“The US would most probably prefer the Eastern Mediterranean be the source of Europe’s energy.

“We want them to buy from us, not the Russians,” said Robert McNally, president of Rapidan Energy Group, a market research firm, describing Washington’s policy. ”

Thank You Ms Cat 🙂 A big thank you
