US President Joe Biden decided to undermine Nord Stream due to fear of Germany’s withdrawal from the sanctions regime against Russia. This was stated in an interview with the Berliner Zeitung by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who presented an article about explosions on gas pipelines.
The American journalist noted that the reason for this decision by the US President was that the war in Ukraine was not going very well for the West. The parties were afraid of the approaching winter.
According to him, Nord Stream 2 was suspended by Germany itself, and not by international sanctions. The United States feared that Germany would lift restrictive measures due to the cold winter, Hersh said.
