Someone “Interested, Capable”: Putin Blames the US for the Nord Stream Blasts

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of causing the Nord Stream pipeline explosions, which shut off a vital conduit for Russian gas deliveries to Europe, escalating geopolitical tensions.
He stated that such a blast can only be carried out by someone who is “interested” and “capable” of such an attack.

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, an ex-Fox News journalist, Putin remarked, “I won’t go into details, but people always say in such cases: ‘Look for someone who is interested’. However, in this scenario, we should look for someone who is both interested and capable.
