Kremlin says ‘reality’ of Nord Stream leaks will ‘surprise’ Europeans

Russia has repeatedly called for an international inquiry into the leaks, which came amid a gas battle between Russia and the European Union and the conflict in Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on October 12 deemed the attack an act of “international terrorism” that benefited the United States, Poland and Ukraine, and Russian diplomats called on US President Joe Biden to reveal whether his country was responsible for the explosions.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday that Moscow was working “actively” to add to the investigation, which he previously accused of being “arranged” to blame Russia.

Speaking to reporters, he said, “The work is being done through diplomatic channels.

“But so far, he has come up against a wall of reluctance to shed light on the truth together, which would surprise many in European countries if made public,” he added, without giving further details.

“Neither the Germans nor the Swedes nor the Danes shared information with us,” said Mr. Peskov lamented.

Nord Stream gas pipelines have been at the center of a geopolitical controversy Even before the conflict in Ukraine, Kiev and Washington opposed their construction, which, according to them, emphasizes European dependence on Russian gas.
