(PresidentialHill.com)- There have been explosions across Russia in recent months, with former US Army Special Operations operative Jack Murphy alleging that the sabotage is the work of NATO and the CIA to sow discord in the country amid its invasion of Ukraine, according to Express.
Critical infrastructure in Russia has mysteriously suffered damage. From shopping centers, gas pipelines, fuel depots, railways, and military bases, Murphy suggests that there might be more to the story.
“The campaign involves long-standing sleeper cells that the allied spy service has activated to hinder Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine by waging a secret war behind Russian lines,” he said, adding that these campaigns are responsible for the explosions affecting Russia’s military-industrial complex since the beginning of the war in February.
He said that it is likely no U.S. officials are on the ground conducting these operations, but that they are part of an “allied intelligence service” getting the go-ahead from U.S. President Joe Biden.
In mid-December, there was an explosion in Chuvashiya in western Russia, hitting critical gas infrastructure. Another explosion hit a Markovskoye condensate treatment plant in eastern Siberia on December 19 resulting in seven people suffering injuries.
This is not the first time a former U.S. official accused the U.S. of conducting operations against Russia.
U.S. Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor said that the United States and Great Britain likely sabotaged the Nord Stream pipelines to prevent Germany from bailing out on Ukraine after its chancellor said that he was not going to send any more weapons, according to Summit News.
Damages from explosions were confirmed at Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in September with Moscow also accusing the U.S. of sabotage.
Ukraine is also enjoying a boost in allied support. Recently, the country is no longer prohibited by the U.S. from conducting drone strikes on Russian territory. Ukraine has already begun using unmanned aircraft to attack Russian air bases, according to a report from 19FortyFive.
