Ukraine: Russia attacks Britain

This Saturday, October 29, Russia accuses Britain of being involved in the explosions that caused leaks in September on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, built to transport Russian gas to Europe, but also of being at the origin, with Ukraine, of the drone strike in Crimea on Saturday, which caused “minor damage” to one of the ships.

The drone strike, which targeted facilities of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea, a peninsula annexed by Moscow, was the most “massive” of the conflict in Ukraine, the pro-Russian governor of the city of Sevastopol announced.

“The preparation for this terrorist act and the training of military personnel of the 73rd Ukrainian Special Maritime Operations Center was carried out by British specialists based in Ochakov in the Mykolaiv region of Ukraine,” the Russian Defense Ministry said on Telegram. These ships participated in the protection of convoys responsible for the export of Ukrainian grain, according to Moscow.

London condemns “false information”

Regarding explosions that caused leaks in September on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines, “representatives of a British naval unit were involved in the planning, supply and execution of the terrorist act in the Baltic Sea on September 26 to undermine Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines,” the Russian Defense Ministry said on Telegram.

The British Ministry of Defense responded by condemning Moscow’s “false claims” to “divert attention”.

“To distract from its disastrous handling of the illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Defense is resorting to spreading false claims on an epic scale,” UK Defense tweeted. “This fabricated story says more about the infighting in the Russian government than it does about the West,” the ministry added.
