    Senior Polish Security Official Refutes Allegations of Polish Links to Nord Stream Attack

    In a recent Twitter statement, Stanisław Żaryn, the commissionaire for information-space security in Poland, dismissed claims of Polish involvement in the destruction of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines. Additionally, the senior security official clarified that there was no evidence to support the allegations of Polish links to the attacks, countering reports based on a German investigation.

    Polish Official Refutes Allegations of Poland as Operating Base for Nord Stream Attack: Investigation Findings Revealed

    Responding to an article published in the Wall Street Journal, which suggested that Poland may have served as an operating base for the attackers, Żaryn highlighted the findings of the investigation. According to him, the yacht allegedly used by the attackers arrived in Poland from the German port of Ruegen with a crew of six individuals. After a brief 12-hour stay in one of the Polish ports, the yacht left Polish territorial waters.

    Żaryn emphasized that during the yacht’s stay in the Polish port, no items were loaded on board, and the Polish Border Guard inspected the crew thoroughly. He further stated that there was no evidence implicating Polish citizens in the explosion of the Nord Stream pipelines.

    Describing the reports as a strategy to obfuscate the events by proliferating speculations and hypotheses, Żaryn criticized such disinformation practices that hinder the determination of truth.

    Additionally, in a broader statement made on the same day, Żaryn firmly debunked the notion that “Poland was a logistics hub for the operation of blowing up Nord Stream,” categorizing the claims as completely false and lacking supporting evidence.
