Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine claimed that Ukraine appealed one more time to the EU Commission, EU countries-members with a request to refuse from the intentions to construct ‘Nord Stream 2’. He claimed this at the joint briefing with Federica Mogherini, the Vice President of the European Commission as 112 Ukraine broadcasted.

‘Ukraine appealed one more time to the EU Commission, EU countries-members to refuse from the intentions to construct ‘Nord Stream-2’ that threatens energy security of Ukraine and the EU’, Poroshenko claimed.

Russia’s leading energy enterprise Gazprom and its partners intend to start implementing the Nord Stream-2 project worth almost 10 billion euros in April 2018. The 1,200-kilometers-long pipeline is to be laid through the Baltic Sea, linking Russia and Germany – bypassing Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic States. The capacity will be twice larger than that of Nord Stream I. The construction is to be complete by late 2019.

The construction of gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 doesn’t imply terminating the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine, but the transit can be preserved only through competitive tariffs and cancelling the Ukrainian law suits against Gazprom.
