During the summer months the CIA “sent a strategic warning” to the European Union over the potential attack on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.
After the three explosions were reported in the Baltic Sea amid safety concerns a five mile exclusion zone was imposed in the area.
Agents at the CIA said that a “strategic warning” was sent to EU countries over the possible attack, however, they did not say at the time exactly where this would be.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called the attack an “act of sabotage.”

“The leak will have a strong immediate warming effect and cause poor air quality as well. Compared to the daily leaks in the poorly maintained gas network all around the globe it will be small though.”
European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said, “All available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act.”
“Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response.”
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed the suggestions and called them “predictable and also predictably stupid.”
He said, “This is a big problem for us because, firstly, both lines of Nord Stream 2 are filled with gas – the entire system is ready to pump gas and the gas is very expensive.
