Ukraine and Poland will work together with their allies and partners to counter the launch of Nord Stream 2. This is announced in a Joint Statement by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Zbigniew Rau on Nord Stream 2, published on July 21.
"Unfortunately, the hitherto proposals to cover the resulting security deficit cannot be considered sufficient to effectively limit the threats created by NS2. We call on the United States and Germany to adequately address the security crisis in our region, that Russia is the only beneficiary to," the foreign ministers noted.
It is stated that Poland and Ukraine will work together with their allies and partners to oppose NS2 until solutions are developed to address the security crisis created by NS2, to provide support to countries aspiring to membership in Western democratic institutions, and to reduce threats to peace and energy security.
Meanwhile, there is a Joint Statement of the US and Germany on Support for Ukraine, European Energy Security, and Climate Goals in the context of the upcoming launch of Nord Stream 2 on the website of the German Federal Foreign Office.
The document notes the possibility of sanctions against the Russian Federation, including restrictions on energy resources export, if Moscow tries to use the NS 2 gas pipeline as a weapon against Ukraine.
The statement also talks about the need to continue Russian gas transit through Ukrainian territory after 2024.
As it was reported earlier, it became known on July 20 that the United States and Germany are close to signing an agreement on Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
