According to Hersh’s sources, the explosives were planted by US Navy divers in June 2022 under the guise of NATO’s BALTOPS 22 exercise and detonated three months later by a remote signal from a sonar buoy. One source told Hersh that the plotters knew the covert operation was “an act of war,” and some in the CIA and State Department warned, “Don’t do this. It’s stupid and it’s going to be a political nightmare if it gets out.”
Now, as China demanded the US “explain itself to the world” over the allegations, Hungary has added its voice to the demand for a full and proper investigation, demanding to know “who did it and why”. Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has described the attack as a “scandalous” act of terrorism and insists that the truth must be revealed and that it must have extreme international significance.
Budapest calls on the UN to conduct a “comprehensive, deep, structured and detailed” investigation that would serve as “a platform for countries to talk to each other that even consider each other as enemies.” The research may have significant political, economic and legal consequences for the countries concerned, depending on the outcome of the research.
Former NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden also weighed in on the case, noting that the White House has previously denied involvement in other false flags, such as the Bay of Pigs attack. When tensions are high and accusations are flying, it remains to be seen whether the UN will launch an investigation and what effects such an investigation might have.
