Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki calls on the EU countries to stop the implementation of Nord Stream 2, arguing the need for energy solidarity and protection of the interests of Belarus and Ukraine. Morawiecki said this during a joint press conference after the meeting of the prime ministers of the Visegrad Group in Lublin, Ukrinform reports.

“We believe that at this stage, the EU's energy solidarity requires the termination of the Nord Stream 2 project, as it threatens energy solidarity and creates a situation of even greater dependence of Belarus and Ukraine on Russia. We call for European energy solidarity, not the formation of a German-Russian alliance over with our heads," Morawiecki said.

He recalled how Russia, using economic mechanisms such as the Nord Stream or Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, has repeatedly cut off gas supplies to the Ukrainian gas transportation system, thereby cutting off its access to Western markets.

As we reported before, the European Union deplores the escalation of violence in Belarus and is determined to impose sanctions on those responsible for rigging elections and suppressing peaceful protests.
