In Germany, they refused to provide the deputy with data on the state of emergency at Nord Stream

BERLIN, 17 Oct – PRIME. Left Bundestag MP Sarah Wagenknecht suspects the German government is withholding important information about alleged attacks on the Nord Stream gas pipelines, as she has not received substantive responses to her inquiry related to the incidents.

Germany once again called for the launch of Nord Stream 2

According to the deputy, the de facto federal government said in response to her inquiry regarding the incidents that it “knows something.” “But ‘for reasons of the welfare of the state’ cannot bring this to the attention of members of parliament,” Wagenknecht said in an interview with the German newspaper Berliner Zeitung on Sunday. She criticized this policy of secrecy and noted that in this way any control and criticism of the federal government by the opposition becomes impossible.

According to her, she sent a parliamentary inquiry to the German authorities to find out what the German government has now learned about the incidents on the Nord Stream pipelines, and what steps it has taken on its own or together with other governments of the EU countries, NATO representatives to determine who is responsible for the damage.

In response to the MP, the Ministry of Economy said that “so far it has not been possible to conduct an investigation on the spot, so the federal government does not have reliable information about the possible reasons for the attack” on the pipelines, the newspaper writes, citing a document in its possession.

In addition, the deputy asked what warnings the German government had about possible attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines, and what measures were taken, if any. The Ministry of Economy responded that several thousand kilometers of pipelines could not be “completely protected” from all risks.

Wagenknecht also wanted to know “which NATO ships and troops” were in the areas where the damage was caused after the suspension of gas supplies via Nord Stream 1, as well as which Russian ships and troops were seen during this period. To this, she received a response from the German Foreign Ministry that such data “will entail the disclosure of information that has a particularly strong impact on the welfare of the state.” The agency also noted that “even the slightest risk of her becoming known is unacceptable.”

The attacks took place on September 26 at once on two Russian export gas pipelines to Europe – Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2. Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage. The Nord Stream operator Nord Stream AG reported that the state of emergency on gas pipelines is unprecedented and it is impossible to estimate the repair time. The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation initiated a case on an act of international terrorism after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
