Serious Clues of NATO-Kiev Attacks. UK Plot on Crimean Bridge. 8 Arrests by FSB. Mysterious Leak in an Oil Pipeline. Drone Killer Found near Nord Stream
by Gospa News Editorial Staff
With four articles published today by Russia Today Jan Fleming, if he were still alive, he could have written the scripts for another blockbuster James Bond movie – Agent 007 licensed to kill.
GrayZone has released exclusive documents of a Kerch Bridge sabotage project drawn up a few weeks ago by a former British military officer.
The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) found that take infrastructure was blown up with 22 packages of explosives weighing 22,770 kg shipped from Odessa to Bulgaria and then placed on the truck bomb. 12 alleged accomplices have been identified and five Russians and three Ukrainians have already been arrested for various roles in the terrorist attack that sparked the Kremlin’s retaliation with a massive launch of missiles on energy and military targets.
A mysterious leak was found in an oil pipeline in Poland with which Russia supplies oil to Germany.
Gazprom has published photos of a NATO killer drone that was found in the past next to the Nord Stream gas pipelines that exploded in recent days for a terrorist act.
NATO’S SEAFOX SUBMARINE DRONE FOUND NEAR NORTH STREAM
The US-led NATO alliance has been very active in waters around Nord Stream and once even managed to “lose” an armed underwater drone right under the pipeline, a Gazprom spokesman has said, according RT.
We already knew of the transit of American ships in recent weeks in that area controlled by US intelligence, as recalled by the Kremlin.
Now here is this “memory” that raises the suspicions of an operation signed by the US counter-intelligence of the CIA, as anticipated by Gospa News, or by the British one of MI6, the unit made famous by the legendary James Bond.
“On November 6, 2015, a NATO underwater mine destroyer ‘Seafox’ was discovered during a scheduled visual inspection of the Nord Stream gas pipeline,” Sergey Kupriyanov told Rossiya 24 on Monday.
Seafox is normally used to identify and detonate mines placed on the seabed and was particularly used by NATO in the Mediterranean Sea during the civil war in Libya.
The device was found resting on the seabed at a depth of 40m between the Nord Stream pipelines, almost directly under one of them, Kupriyanov said.
Back then, the US-led bloc said it had “lost” the device during military drills, the spokesman claimed. The German-made drone carries a 1.4kg shaped-charge warhead, which is intended for destroying sunken unexploded munitions and mines, according to publicly available data.
“That’s NATO drills for you, when a military-grade explosive device ends up straight under our pipeline,” Kupriyanov concluded.
The remarks come in the aftermath of the apparent sabotage attacks on the Nord Stream pipeline system. The Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines both abruptly lost pressure on September 26, following a series of powerful underwater explosions off the Danish island of Bornholm. The ruptures caused massive gas leaks into the open sea and rendered the pipelines inoperable.
Moscow has called for an international – with its own participation – probe into the incident, other parties appear to be reluctant. Sweden, for instance, has already explicitly stated it will not share with Russia the results of its investigation into the explosion, which a former Pentagon advisor attributed to a US-UK share.
“In Sweden, our preliminary investigations are confidential, and that, of course, also applies in this case,” Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson told reporters on Monday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has already blamed the “the Anglo-Saxons,” a Russian colloquialism for the US-UK alliance, of being behind the blasts, which Moscow described as an “act of international terrorism.
” Speaking during a meeting of the Russian Security Council on Monday, Putin said that “we all know well who the ultimate beneficiary of this crime is.”
MYSTERIOUS LEAK IN THE RUSSIAN OIL PIPELINE FOR GERMANY
Polish operator PERN has said it’s discovered a leak on the Druzhba pipeline section, which supplies Russian oil to Germany.
The rupture was detected late on Tuesday by automated systems on one of the two strings of the pipeline, some 70 kilometers from the town of Plock in central Poland, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
The damaged half was switched off immediately, and the other string continues to operate as normal, the company said.
“At this point, the causes of the incident are not known,” PERN said, adding that its staff and firefighters were deployed to the site to assess the situation and secure the area.
There are no grounds to suspect that the leak on the pipeline was a result of sabotage, Mateusz Berger, Poland’s top official in charge of energy infrastructure, told Reuters. But all the hypotheses remain possible, even that of another attack.
The Druzhba pipeline is one of the largest oil transport networks in the world, spanning some 4,000km and bringing oil from Russia to Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany.
THE BRITISH PLAN TO BLOW THE CRIMEAN BRIDGE
UK intelligence officials apparently commissioned a study in April examining ways to blow up Russia’s Crimea Bridge, The Grayzone has reported.
The secret plot was drawn up at the request of senior British Army intelligence operative Chris Donnelly, the Grayzone reported on Tuesday, citing internal documents and correspondence that the investigative journalism outlet obtained from an unidentified source.

The stated goal was to destroy the bridge to cut off a key Russian supply route, isolate military forces in Crimea and temporarily block maritime access to the Sea of Azov.
The attack roadmap was titled, ‘Audacious: Support for Ukraine Maritime Raiding Operations’, and it was produced by UK military veteran Hugh Ward, according to the documents obtained by Grayzone. Donnelly, who’s also a veteran NATO advisor, called the plans “very impressive indeed.”
Ward laid out multiple options for blowing up the $4 billion bridge, including a cruise missile attack targeting concrete pillars on each side of the central steel arch. He also examined using divers or underwater drones to attach limpet mines to pillars at the “weakest part” of the structure.
ARRESTS FOR THE ATTACK CARRIED OUT BY RUSSIA
Russia’s domestic security service, the FSB, has announced arrests over the attack on the Crimean Bridge. It has also revealed details of the alleged Ukrainian terrorist plot, including its mastermind.
The agency accused the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry of being behind the explosion, which damaged the strategic structure last Saturday. It claimed that Commander, Kirill Budanov, was personally responsible for the operation.
Russia has identified 12 individuals as suspected accomplices in the plot and has arrested eight of them, the FSB said. The list of people in custody includes five Russians and three foreigners, who have citizenship of Ukraine and Armenia.
Investigators said the shipment left Odessa in August and went through Ruse, Bulgaria, to Poti in Georgia. It was then moved to Armenia, a country which has a free trade agreement and a relaxed customs regime with Russia. It was then imported into Russia via Georgia on October 4, according to the timeline.
The explosives were disguised as rolls with plastic construction film, which were shipped on pallets and weighed 22,770 kg, the statement said.
The transportation paperwork identified a non-existent firm in Crimea as the final recipient, according to the Russian agency. But the set of documents was only the latest of several used to disguise the movement of the cargo, it added.
A spokesman for Ukrainian military intelligence told the media that the FSB was a “fake structure,” and that the report was unworthy of comment.
At least three people died in the bombing of the bridge, including the truck driver. A fourth body that may be related to the incident was reportedly discovered this week. The blast also damaged the road section of the bridge and set on fire oil tanks on the parallel railroad line.
THE EXPLOSIVE ATTACK FOILED IN RUSSIAN BORDER
Russia’s FSB security agency has announced the arrest of a Ukrainian citizen, who was allegedly seeking to plant a powerful improvised explosive device inside a transport terminal in the city of Bryansk.
According to Wednesday’s report, the male in his mid-50s travelled to Russia from Ukraine via Estonia. Once in Russia, he recovered the components for an IED from a stash pre-prepared by the Ukrainian special services, the statement claimed alongside a video.
He later allegedly assembled the bomb at a rented apartment, with an intelligence agent specializing in explosives giving instructions on how to build and test it. The device was adapted from an anti-tank missile warhead and had a yield equivalent to 3 kg of TNT, according to the description.
The FSB said the suspect observed the warehouses of a logistical company in Bryansk, where he wanted to plant the device, before being arrested by Russian law enforcement. Bryansk Region shares a border with Ukraine.
