the hole was definitely drilled

the leak was coming from a two-millimeter-wide hole

Well, we can rule out the Americans. lol

by all indications, the hole probably wasn’t created by an impact with space junk or micrometeoroids, which left open the possibility it was created by a human.

There's two holes. Both look like someone was messing about with a drill bit, skip marks before being pushed through.

The oddest part of the story is the suggestion and reporting that space debris may have caused it.

Maybe it was a throw away part, that ended up being used, due to Russia.
