Did the United States sabotage the Nord Stream gas pipelines connecting Russia and Germany?  

It’s been five months since a series of explosions damaged Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea. Despite numerous investigations, it’s yet to be determined who’s responsible.  

But a report by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh is gaining a lot of attention. He claims the U.S. was responsible. Washington vehemently denies any involvement. 

Now, Russia is calling on the United Nations Security Council to ask for an independent inquiry.
