A Ukrainian military officer serving with the nation’s Special Operations Forces played a key role in the high-profile attack on the Russian Nord Stream gas pipelines in autumn 2022, the Washington Post reported on Saturday, citing its sources among the Ukrainian and other European officials as well as “people knowledgeable about the details of the covert operation.” Identified as Roman Chervinsky, a Ukrainian colonel, 48, was reportedly responsible for managing logistics and support for a six-person sabotage team that carried out the attack, WaPo said. The man reportedly had deep ties with Ukrainian intelligence and the military. He allegedly served with a Special Operations Forces unit responsible for coordinating sabotage and subversive activities on the territories controlled by the Russian forces. The officer also occupied senior positions in the Ukrainian military intelligence and the national security service (SBU) and was “personally close to key military and security leaders,” the US media outlet said. Chervinsky reported to Major General Viktor Hanushchak, who, in turn, communicated directly with Ukraine’s top military commander, General Valery Zaluzhny, according to WaPo.
