Executive Director of Nord Stream 2 AG Matthias Warnig asked Russian President Vladimir Putin about Moscow's plans after the start of the special operation in Ukraine, he told in an interview with the German newspaper Zeit.
Waring noted that he personally met with Putin in Moscow and asked him, in particular, what were the goals of the Russian troops that were then near Kyiv. Putin did not answer such questions, citing state secrets. Waring, who, according to the publication, is closer to Putin than anyone in the West, called the NWO a mistake, the newspaper notes, and told Putin that Russia would not be able to achieve its goals.
At the same time, Putin, according to him, offered him to move to Russia, but Waring refused this offer, while in Germany itself he is “toxic” - they don’t want to deal with him, and his accounts are frozen.
On the night of September 26, pressure dropped on the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, and later two leaks were discovered that were located in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Sweden, and two more in the Danish EEZ. The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said that these incidents were premeditated, and the Kremlin admitted that it could be a "terrorist attack at the state level." On September 30, during a speech in the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West of sabotage on the Nord Stream highways and the destruction of the European energy structure.
