A senior Ukrainian military officer, Colonel Roman Chervinsky, with ties to Kyiv’s intelligence services, allegedly coordinated the bombing of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines.
The attack, aimed at Russia’s energy infrastructure, involved a six-man team using false identities to attach bombs to the pipelines.
This revelation challenges previous attempts to blame Moscow for the attack and has sparked controversy.

Chervinsky, currently imprisoned and facing charges, denies involvement in the sabotage.
The Washington Post, citing unnamed European and Ukrainian officials, claimed “that Colonel Roman Chervinsky, 48, previously of Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces, served as the ‘coordinator’ for the bombing of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines that transported natural gas from Russia into Germany.”
The former senior Ukrainian military officer managed the “logistics and support” for a six-man team.
“The officer’s role provides the most direct evidence to date tying Ukraine’s military and security leadership to a controversial act of sabotage that has spawned multiple criminal investigations and that U.S. and Western officials have called a dangerous attack on Europe’s energy infrastructure,” The Washington Post reported.
The report raises questions about Ukraine’s role in the attack and the potential impact on its relationship with Germany and the United States.
