The Russian president’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, says the saboteurs targeting and seeking to destroy a section of TurkStream gas pipeline have been arrested.

Saboteurs have been detained while plotting to blow up part of the TurkStream pipeline, which delivers Russian natural gas to Türkiye, the Kremlin claimed on Thursday.

The saboteurs have been caught, and several people have been arrested. They wanted to blow it up on Russian territory, in order to blame Russia for not delivering gas to Turkey and Europe.

Peskov’s remarks follow Russia’s proposal to turn Türkiye into a hub for Russian gas, re-exporting it to European consumers. He was speaking on the sidelines of an international summit in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The EU was now deprived of the means to receive Russian gas, even if it were to request it, after September’s terrorist attacks that damaged three out of four strings of the Nord Stream pipelines under the Baltic Sea.

The Kremlin spokesman stressed that the pipeline to Türkiye was the only fully functional, fully loaded and working as clockwork route for Russian gas to EU countries.

Ankara could develop its gas infrastructure further to increase its re-export capacity, he suggested, claiming that the Turkish leadership was interested in the proposal.

President Vladimir Putin hinted about the origins of certain forces that were behind an attack on TurkStream, Peskov added, without providing details on which incident he was referring to.

On Wednesday, the Russian president appeared to accuse Washington of having a hand in the sabotage of Nord Stream, saying the beneficiary was the party that can now force liquefied natural gas from the USA on to European countries on a much larger scale.

In the same speech, he voiced the idea of a Turkish gas hub. Putin accused Kiev of launching a number of sabotage plots targeting remaining Russian energy infrastructure, including the TurkStream pipeline.

In mid-September, Russia’s FSB security agency reported capturing a Ukrainian agent and several accomplices, who allegedly plotted to plant a bomb at a facility through which Russian natural gas is exported to Türkiye. Multiple arrests were made.

Competing world powers It’s just as the bible said it many centuries ago. Predicted in Daniel chapter 11, the pull and tug of the King of the north and the king of the south. Two great powers on earth both under satanic influence have been battling for centuries, both have the same purpose and that’s world domination exclusive of God Jehovah’s sovereignty. Furthermore, they want people’s worship as Revelation 13 describes. These two great powers will come to to an agreement of peace the bible prophecy predicts. When the political system thinks they have succeeded in enslaving mankind, the bible… Read more »
