Polish President calls for respect for the interests of the countries of Eastern Europe, who opposed the «Nord stream-2»

«We invite investors to Ukraine to modernize the Ukrainian GTS, make Ukraine stronger and more powerful,» he urged.

«Because of the «Nord stream-2″ has only one purpose – political, to make Europe more dependent, to make Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia and Croatia and any other country weaker,» said Poroshenko.

«If we’re powerful enough to give the correct answer to the «Nord stream-2″ — this will make Europe stronger,» the President said.

Polish President calls for respect for the interests of the countries of Eastern Europe, who opposed the «Nord stream-2»

The President of Poland Andrzej Duda called on the EU partners to respect the interests of the countries of Eastern Europe in connection with the plan of construction of the gas pipeline «Nord stream-2» transporting Russian gas to Germany bypassing Ukraine. About Duda said during a speech at the Munich conference on security issues.

The leader of the Polish state, commenting on the development partnership with Germany, explained that the partnership between countries and neighbors means, primarily, respect of interests. «The best example of the problem between us is the «Nord stream-1» and «Nord stream-2,» said Duda.

In particular, the Polish President said that his country opposed the «Nord stream-1», but in the end, Poland’s position has not found support among the partners.

«Now we are against the «Nord stream-2″, because this investment is contrary to our interests, and not only our interests but also interests of the Ukrainian, Slovak interests and the interests of other countries,» said Duda.

In this regard, he noticed that the back side sounds that «it’s just business, it’s not the government’s problem, it is a problem of private business».

«Well, it’s possible that money is a private in this investment, but in reality is a political problem, not a problem of Economics, because there is no economic reason to provide this investment. Because we have a lot of other pipelines between Russia and Europe. Why the Germans want to build together with «Gazprom» new pipelines against real political and energy interests in Poland and other countries?», — said the leader of the Polish state.

Therefore, as stated by Duda, if he will ask about the partnership, he will be responsible about the need to respect interests. «And if we have problem, we must discuss and we must understand each other. And this is a true partnership for me,» said Duda.

As reported, the project «Northern stream-2» involves the construction of two offshore strings with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from Russia to Germany under the Baltic sea.

At the beginning of September 2015, Gazprom, Shell, OMV, E. On. signed the agreement of shareholders of joint project company that will build the gas pipeline «Nord stream-2». In October the Russian President Vladimir Putin personally gave a start to construction of the gas pipeline «Ukhta — Torzhok-2», which will provide gas supplies through the pipeline «Nord stream-2» for gas supplies from Russia to the European Union bypassing Ukraine.
