“The direct participation of the United States in the Nord Stream explosions ... Now Mrs. Nuland, in fact, has made a confession,” he said.

Earlier, Nuland, during a speech in Congress, said that senators and State Department officials are happy that Russian gas pipelines "turned into a pile of metal at the bottom of the Baltic Sea."

Lavrov said that Nuland's confession of joy at the destruction of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 pipelines is amusing.

On December 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that Nord Stream was blown up by someone who was interested in supplying Europe with Russian gas only through Ukraine.

He stressed that everyone acknowledged that there had been a terrorist attack on Nord Stream.
