The sanctions regime should be extended to the construction of the pipeline “Nord stream-2”. Such a request to the U.S. government appealed to the Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki.
“We want the sanctions regime covered the construction of the pipeline “Nord stream — 2″ in accordance with the law of the United States from August 2, 2017, which includes provisions on restrictive measures against Russia”, — said the Chairman of the Polish government, who believes that the previous interpretation of the document is “ambiguous” and “unsatisfactory”. As RIA “Novosti” with reference to the Polish media, we are talking not only about the energy security of Poland, “but also about the security of the entire region.”
We will remind, earlier in an interview with Politico Mateusz Morawiecki called Russia the most dangerous for Poland as a threat, and urged to prepare for Russian invasion to Ukraine. In addition, how to write “URA.RU” Polish Prime Minister criticized the construction of “Nord stream — 2”, calling the project a purely political, designed to make unnecessary the pipelines through which Russian gas to Europe comes through Ukraine.
Note the “Nord stream — 2” will run under the Baltic sea from Leningrad region to the German coast near Greifswald, near the exit point of the “Nord stream”. The route length is more than 1200 km.
