New Ukraine link in Nord Stream sabotage – Der Spiegel — RT World News

An email chartering the vessel allegedly used in the pipeline attack came from the war-torn country, according to investigators

German “Der Spiegel” reported on Friday, citing sources, that Ukrainian nationals were reportedly involved in email metadata from chartered yachts in the Nord Stream pipeline bombing last year.

In March, the outlet claimed that a yacht named Andromeda was allegedly used by a team of divers to sabotage the Nord Stream pipeline. The publication cited traces of explosives found in the cabin and false identification documents used while chartering the boat.
