In a recent turn of events, Henry Kissinger, a well-known neocon figure, has placed blame on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the bombing of the Russian Nord Stream pipeline. Kissinger made these comments unknowingly to Russian prank callers who were pretending to be Zelensky. The bombing of the Nord Stream pipeline occurred in 2022 and is widely believed to be the result of a military sabotage operation sponsored by the US and Ukrainian governments.
The pranksters contacted Kissinger through a video-taped web call, posing the question, “Who is behind the explosion of Nordstream 2?” Kissinger appeared hesitant to answer the question, causing the pranksters to ask again. After a lengthy pause, Kissinger responded, “I frankly have thought you were.” The pranksters denied their involvement, and Kissinger clarified that he did not blame them.
The video of Kissinger’s accusatory remarks towards Zelensky and the Ukrainians has surfaced online at a time when Zelensky and his administration are facing significant challenges and humiliation on the international stage. Recently, Zelensky criticized NATO leaders for not approving Ukrainian NATO membership ahead of the alliance’s annual summit. Pictures of Zelensky sulking around the meeting after being rejected by the alliance’s leaders have gone viral.
In an attempt to reverse his image, a video has been released featuring Zelensky pleading with citizens of NATO nations to continue providing financial aid to Ukraine. He claims that Ukraine will be admitted to NATO once their conflict with Russia comes to an end. The release of this video aims to garner support and financial backing for Ukraine’s ongoing war efforts.
The accusation from Kissinger, although made unknowingly and as a result of a prank, further fuels the speculation surrounding US and Ukrainian involvement in the Nord Stream pipeline bombing. These suspicions have persisted for some time, with many world leaders treating the US and Ukrainian responsibility for the attack as an open secret.
The Nord Stream pipeline, which transported energy from Russia through the Baltic Sea to European countries, was targeted by an underwater explosion in 2022. This incident caused significant damage to the pipeline and disrupted the energy supply to Europe. While no official acknowledgment has been made by the US or Ukrainian governments regarding their involvement in the attack, the evidence and speculation continue to circulate.
The repercussions of this incident have far-reaching consequences for international relations, particularly between Russia, the US, and Ukraine. The tension between these countries is already high, and the bombing of the Nord Stream pipeline only exacerbates the situation.
As this news unfolds, it will be crucial to monitor the reactions and responses from the involved parties. The accusations made by Kissinger, even in the context of a prank call, shed light on the suspicions and tensions surrounding the Nord Stream pipeline bombing. As investigations continue and more information comes to light, the true extent of US and Ukrainian involvement may become clearer.
