HANOI, 4 Oct – PRIME. The West, after threatening to destroy the Nord Streams, did not particularly hide its actions to destroy this infrastructure, said Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov.
At a meeting with Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, he explained that both the architecture of international security and the rule of law are now being destroyed in the world.
“Western politicians and diplomats are increasingly practicing double standards. The pinnacle of aggression and cynicism was their public position about the recent malicious actions against the Nord Stream gas pipelines. First, they announced their intention to destroy this infrastructure, then they did not really try to hide their actions against its destruction, and in the end they accuse Russia of sabotage. Agree, complete schizophrenia, and massive, “Krasnov said.
“In such conditions, it is especially valuable that Vietnam, despite provocations and disinformation, remains our reliable friend and strategic partner,” the Russian Prosecutor General added.
The attacks on two Russian export gas pipelines to Europe at once took place on September 26. 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 the initiation of a case on an act of international terrorism after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that sanctions are not enough for the Anglo-Saxons, they have begun to destroy the pan-European energy infrastructure.
The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that US President Joe Biden in February publicly threatened to “end Nord Stream” if Russian troops crossed the border of Ukraine. The White House explained in this regard that Biden promised to prevent the commissioning of Nord Stream – 2″ instead of destroying it.
The operation of Nord Stream has been suspended since the end of August due to problems with the repair of Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions, but the pipeline remained filled with gas. Nord Stream 2, completed in 2021 but never put into operation, has also already been filled with gas.
