Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated that the allegation that Ukraine was behind last year’s explosions in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines was not credible and said, “Only well-trained special services can do this.”
Peskov made statements to journalists on current issues in the capital Moscow.
Evaluating the claim that Ukraine was behind the explosions in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines, Peskov said:
“This is hard to believe. This is a very difficult action. Only well-trained special services can do this. And there are very few of them in the world. You can see that the Anglo-Saxons, which we have been talking about all along, are making a fuss. Obviously they feel embarrassed by this terrorist attack in their relations with the Germans. This is obvious.”

“We are concerned about the situation in Georgia”
Referring to the protests in Georgia against the parliamentary approval of the law on “transparency of foreign influence”, Peskov said that Russia has nothing to do with this law.
Peskov pointed out that a similar law had already been adopted in the US.
Expressing concern about the situation in Georgia, Peskov said, “Of course, it is important for us to have peace around our borders.”
“There are question marks over the implementation of the grain agreement”
Answering a question about the extension of the grain shipment agreement between Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and the United Nations (UN), which was signed in Istanbul on July 22, Peskov noted that there are many question marks about the implementation of this agreement.
“There are a lot of questions about the final recipients of the grain, where the grain is going. Problems with the second part of the grain are also known to everyone.”
