As the U.S. continues to fund the war in Ukraine, they are simultaneously blaming Ukraine for blowing up the Nord Stream Pipeline and claiming, “We told them not to but they did it anyway.”
The Wall Street Journal reports that the CIA knew of a plan in Ukraine to sabotage this gas pipeline and felt pretty good about talking them out of it. But, uh oh, somehow Ukraine was able to use a single 50-foot yacht out of Poland to accomplish this highly specialized operation. Ukraine has no Navy but still managed to pull this off. Extraordinary, right?
The WSJ admits that “some European governments still struggle to believe” this. Still, the European Commission announced on Tuesday that it will provide “€100 million of new loans to Ukraine for fast recovery, such as for municipal or energy infrastructure repairs.”
