MOSCOW, November 6. /TASS/. Russia has indirect grounds to suggest that the text message saying ‘it’s done’ sent by Liz Truss, who was the UK’s Prime Minister at the time, to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken concerned the Nord Stream blasts, Foreign Intelligence Service Director Sergey Naryshkin said.
"Well, I only have an indirect proof that all this (text message - TASS) is well-grounded," he told Pavel Zarubin’s "Moscow. Kremlin. Putin" program on Rossiya-1 television.
Meanwhile, Naryshkin noted that Russian citizens should be cautious, whereas the Foreign Intelligence Service should continue preventing external threats. "We should be cautious, whereas special services, including the Foreign Intelligence Service, should continue revealing and preventing any threats, external threats against our state and our citizens," he noted when asked what the Russian side might expect from western partners.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said she expected London to provide a response on media reports that the UK’s former PM Liz Truss sent a message saying ‘it’s done’ to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken after the Nord Stream blasts.
On September 27, Nord Stream AG reported unprecedented damage that occurred on the previous day at three threads of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines. Swedish seismologists registered two explosions recorded along the Nord Stream pipelines. The Russian General Prosecutor's Office has initiated the opening of a case on an act of international terrorism after the gas pipelines were damaged.
