Miroslav Lajcak claimed this during the meeting with Ukrainian PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kyiv today, informs UNIAN.

“Nord Stream-2” is a purely political project and I don’t see any other reason for its construction. We discussed it in the EU in December, as well as an important court ruling in relation to this project”, - he said.

According to Lajcak this project is directed against Ukraine and the EU aims at diversifying the energy sector.

“That’s why we are united on this issue”, - added Lajcak.

UNIAN informs that the Head of the largest state energy company “Naftogaz Ukrainy” Andriy Kobolev believes that construction of “Nord Stream-2”, which “Gazprom” intends to execute together with a number of EU countries will destroy transportation route of gas to the EU.

Project “Nord Stream-2” will supply two gas pipelines with capacity of 55 bcma of gas annually from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea.
