"If the investigation confirms this fact, it cannot be accepted. It is necessary to bear responsibility for such actions", - the official representative of the diplomatic department commented.

According to Mao Ning, if it is confirmed that the United States was behind the explosions, Washington should provide the world with an explanation about this. The explosions at the Nord Streams "had an extremely negative impact on the global environment and the global energy market", - she added.

It's worth reminding that on the eve of the American journalist Seymour Hersh published a material claiming that the United States was involved in the explosions. The explosions were a secret operation of the country, the journalist writes, citing an informed source familiar with operational planning. According to him, the explosives were laid by divers of the US Navy during NATO exercises. The White House commented on this information, calling it "a complete lie". Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov noted that the United States is waiting for consequences if this information is confirmed.
