Zelensky to Duda on Nord Stream-2: «Trap for the whole of Europe»

Kiev, February 26 - Neftegaz.RU. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky and his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda have discussed by phone the issues of energy security in Europe.
V.Zelensky told Duda about the Nord Stream-2 project:
  • This project is, in fact, a trap for the whole of Europe
  • It cannot be allowed
  • Further boosting of sanctions against this pipeline project is a guarantee of Europe's energy security
The leaders coordinated steps to further oppose the Nord Stream 2 project and agreed to involve the international community in this process as much as possible.
Duda agreed with Zelensky that every effort should be made to prevent the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

The parties also discussed the situation in Donbas.
Zelensky thanked the Polish party for its firm support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
He invited Duda to visit Ukraine and personally take part in events dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, as well as in the Crimean Platform Summit.

After a telephone conversation with Poland’s Head of state Zelensky wrote on social media that he is grateful to Joe Biden for the Nord Stream-2 sanctions.
On January 13, 2021, the U.S. Department of State notified European companies involved in the construction of Nord Stream 2 of the risk of imposing new sanctions.
On February 22, 2021, the U.S. imposed new sanctions on the Russian Fortuna vessel building Nord Stream-2.

Ukraine stands against the construction of Nord Stream-2 as it will most likely lose its status of a gas transit country, while its potential revenue losses are estimated at $3 billion annually.
The project is also highly criticized by the U.S., Poland and the Baltic States.
