DISINFO: NS sabotage shows that NATO can use a nuclear weapon against Ukraine and blame Russia for it


The Nord Stream gas pipelines sabotage by the Americans showed what NATO was capable of.

Beware: they are capable of the worst, even the false flag use of an atomic weapon to globalise the conflict! France must get out of this infernal circle!


Anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory stating that there is no limit in the atrocities NATO is capable of, including carrying out a false flag attack in order to damage Russia's reputation.

NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states and does not conduct false flag operations to hurt Russia’s reputation.

NATO nuclear policy does not include false flag nuclear attacks to hurt non-member state's image.

Moscow has a history of falsely accusing its opponents of staging "provocations" which either never happened at all, or were subsequently carried out by themselves or their allies. In the weeks leading up to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February, Moscow repeatedly falsely claimed that Ukraine, assisted by US or Western forces, prepared a chemical attack or attacks on industry sites storing chemical agents.

There is no evidence to back the claim that Ukraine is preparing a chemical or biological provocation or a use of the weapons of mass destruction.

On 26 September 2022, the NS1 and the NS2 pipelines both ruptured. Denmark, Sweden view the Nord Stream pipeline leaks as 'deliberate actions'.

SwedenGermany and Denmark opened an investigation of the incident. This is the first step in determining what caused the leaks. Anything before that would be mere speculation and conspiracy theory.

As High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell stated: "Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response." NATO called the incidents "deliberate, reckless, and irresponsible acts of sabotage. Joe Biden says Nord Stream leak is ‘Deliberate act of sabotage’.
