The heads of the parliaments of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland signed a letter at a meeting in Vilnius saying that the Nord Stream-2 threatens the energy independence of the EU states, reports the Polish Radio. Earlier, the officials of Moldova and Ukraine left their signatures.

Speaker of the Sejm of Poland Marek Kuchciński stressed that due to the unification of a whole group of countries their opinion will have more weight than if they had spoken separately.

"One principle is a common concern for the security of all the countries of the European Union, as well as of the countries in its eastern part. We want to cooperate with everyone, but we also want to respect and care for the security of the citizens of our Baltic countries and Poland. We support Ukraine, which these days leads a hard struggle for its independence," said Kuchciński.

The text of the letter indicates that energy security is one of the main conditions for the existence of a united and prosperous Europe. Nord Stream-2, though positioned as an exclusively commercial project, is a tool for creating Europe's energy dependence on Russia and further political blackmail.

Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Latvia and Moldova called on the countries of Europe to ensure the full implementation of EU rules when operating the Nord Stream-2.

Earlier, Mateusz Moravetski, Prime Minister of Poland, stated that Nord Stream 2 was dangerous both for the Baltic States and for Europe as a whole.
