Seymour Hersh, the famous journalist, found:... The US destroyed the Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea in a covert operation.... Explosives were planted at the pipelines in June 2022. It was planted by US Navy divers. The job of planting explosives was carried on under the guise of a NATO exercise named BALTOPS22... The explosives were detonated on September 26, 2022. It was detonated with signal from a sonar buoy, which was dropped by surveillance plane of the Norwegian Navy. It was dropped near the pipelines.  The planning for the job was initiated in December 2021. A task force was set up, in which Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor, participated... Hersh, famous for his exposure of the 1968 Mai Lai Massacre by the US soldiers in Vietnam that brought him the Pulitzer in 1970, said in the article: “As long as Europe remained dependent on the pipelines for cheap natural gas, Washington was afraid that countries like Germany would be reluctant to supply Ukraine with money and weapons it needed to defeat Russia.”
