So from what I can find on the internet, many of my initial assumptions are wrong.
You dont need a submarine to destroy the pipelines, regular diving gear is perfectly sufficient. The east sea just isnt that deep.
The gear needed to destroy the pipelines would fit onto the smallest fishing boat.
The knowhow needed apparently still implies it was a state operator. It needs to be exactly the right explosive, exactly correctly applied, because these pipelines are extremely resilient. Also they needed to avoid detection both above water and below water, i.e. they would know what monitoring the pipelines exactly have, too.
The repair of the pipeline is actually super hard because the saltwater will fill the whole pipeline and destroy the pipeline from inside. So the pipeline is very likely already lost. It would need to be recreated, which will take a very long time and be very expensive.
However, other assumptions of mine seem to be true.
Cui bono also still says the USA did it. They benefit from it many times over.
Not only wouldnt it make sense for Russia to destroy their own pipelines, which are after all very expensive, very hard to replace, are now probably destroyed for good, but even worse the pipelines have been the ace in the sleeve for Russia to get peace with Europe again. This is now gone. Russia has no benefit from this, not even as a false flag.
And Joe Biden has suggested at least two times early this year the USA will destroy the pipelines if it comes to it. Nuland has also suggested once around the same time that the Nordstream pipelines wont be available anymore. And the CIA has "warned" Germany in summer that somebody may destroy the pipelines.
So it seems that the USA was it.
The question is now how will Russia react to this.
Also, now the first person has done it - how many copycats will do it, too. After all, theres quite a bit more down there in the sea that one could destroy. Not all as hard to destroy as gas pipelines.
Winter is coming.
P.s.: Oh and yes, the mainstream media will blame Russia. Obviously. And the "investigations" by NATO, i.e. the people who did it, will result in the claim that Russia did it. Obviously. Just if anyone actually wonders.
