UNITED NATIONS, February 15. /TASS/. Russia has requested that a UN Security Council meeting be held to discuss the Nord Stream gas pipeline sabotage on February 22, Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said on his Telegram channel Wednesday.
"In light of new information regarding the bombing of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, we have requested a UN Security Council meeting be held on February 22, at 3:00 p.m. New York time," he said.
At the same time, at 3:00 p.m., the UN General Assembly special session will resume its work, with an anti-Russian resolution planned to be put to a vote.
On February 8, US journalist Seymour Hersh, who specializes in investigative journalism, stated in his article, citing a source, that the Nord Stream pipelines were bombed using explosive devices planted by US Navy divers in June 2022 under the guise of the BALTOPS exercise, with support from Norwegian specialists. According to Hersh, the operation was authorized by US President Joe Biden personally, following nine months of discussions with White House security specialists.
White House National Security Council Spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said in a commentary for TASS that Hersh’s version is "utterly false and total fiction."
