MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. Rejecting a joint investigation with Russia into the terrorist attacks on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines, the Western countries sought to conceal British specialists’ involvement in the explosions, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement on Saturday.
"Russian defense officials reported that they have information about the complicity of the British intelligence agencies also in the series of explosions on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea. Russia has repeatedly called for a joint investigation into these terrorist attacks," the diplomat said, indicating that similar proposals had been submitted to the government of Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
"The fact that the Western countries turned this proposal down proves that they have something to hide. Now we understand what exactly they are hiding," Zakharova stressed.
