According to Danilov, such judgments are far from reality.

"Our oligarchs have nothing to do with this," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Danilov added that such versions are close to "fiction".

On March 7, The New York Times published an article saying that "new intelligence" indicates the involvement of a certain "pro-Ukrainian group" in the undermining of nord streams in the Baltic Sea.

The U.S. National Security Council (NSC) later said it could not confirm The New York Times' reports.

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov expressed the opinion that publications about terrorist attacks on the "Nord Streams" are a coordinated planting.
