As the Establishment media begins to push claims that Russia may be behind the possible attack on the Nord Stream gas pipelines, the Kremlin fired back, referring to the claims as “stupid.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the incident needed to be investigated, and the timings for repairing the damaged pipelines are not yet clear.

Germany, Denmark, and Sweden claimed the leaks resulted from an “attack” that caused major leaks into the Baltic Sea.

Europe is now investigating the incident.

When asked about claims Russia could be behind the possible attack, Peskov said: “That’s quite predictable and also predictably stupid.”

“This is a big problem for us because, firstly, both lines of Nord Stream 2 are filled with gas – the entire system is ready to pump gas, and the gas is very expensive,” Peskov said.

“Now the gas is flying off into the air,” he added.

“Before making any claims, we should wait for investigation into these ruptures, whether there was an explosion or not,” Peskov said.

We reported on Tuesday that Danish F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to photograph the area after the leaks were reported.

One of the aircraft observed the “sea bubbling” at a location southeast of Bornholm, according to Newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

Meanwhile, the Danish Navy frigate Absalon was sent to the area around Bornholm, broadcaster DR reports.

Nord Stream AG, the operator of the network, said on Tuesday thar three of four offshore lines of the Nord Stream gas pipeline suffered “unprecedented” damage.

Who benefits?

Fox News Tucker Carlson questioned what happened to the Nord Stream pipeline, asking, “Did the Biden administration really do this?”

Carlson noted a video where President Joe Biden suggests he may take out the pipelines.

Watch

In June, the CIA issued vague warning that the two Nord Stream gas pipelines could be targeted for an attack.

The New York Times reported that three senior officials familiar with the intelligence refused to say whether Russia itself was identified as a possible attacker.

“American officials said that while it appeared likely that the damage to the pipelines was the result of sabotage, they had reached no conclusion about who might have been responsible. Both pipelines suffered a sudden loss of pressure and released gas into the sea, European officials reported, and the chances that both suffered accidents nearly simultaneously seem low,’ the outlet reported.
