MOSCOW, March 8. /TASS/. The US and the UK are using the tactics of controlled leaks in the issue of the Nord Stream explosions in a bid to build an agenda that suits them, but the truth will come out, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Washington and London follow the beaten path of using controlled leaks in this matter, shaping up the agenda that suits them," she said. "But the truth will come out, I’m sure," the diplomat said on Telegram.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing US officials, that the latest intelligence data suggest a pro-Ukrainian group could be behind the sabotaging of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines. The US government wasn’t aware of the operation, the report said. The German newspaper Die Zeit issued a report that said German investigators had identified the ship that was used by the saboteurs. The company that rented it was allegedly owned by Ukrainian nationals and was registered in Poland.
