Nord Stream-2 is a political project getting in the way of countries’ energy security. He said this at a press conference in Kyiv broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Poland definitely opposes the Nord Stream-2 project. Here we are on the same page with Ukraine, just like with Slovakia… This isn’t merely economic or business project, it is also a political project, the initiative that gets in the way in energy safety issues of our countries. Thus, we can’t accept it”, Duda said.
Petro Poroshenko added that he and his Polish counterpart discussed issues of cooperation in energy sector. The Head of the Ukrainian state also expressed an uncompromised position concerning the Nord Stream-2.
“We join efforts with our Slovakian partners, and the ones from the Baltic states, Scandinavian countries, Italy and other EU members. We are sure this project has no economic grounds, it is purely political, so there should be no political pressure on EU member countries and Ukraine, if it comes to implementation of this project”, said the Ukrainian President.
