The project «Northern stream — 2» can lead to fatal consequences for Ukraine, said the new Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki.

«We believe that Nord Stream 2 project is very harmful, which threatens the security of Central Europe. This is a project that can even be deadly for Ukraine, our immediate neighbour,» he told the radio station «Szczecin».

According to him, «in a moment of complete disconnection of Ukraine from gas transit will remain obstacles to further destabilization of the situation» in the country.

«Nord stream — 2,» added the Polish Prime Minister, «very firmly connects Germany with Russia.» At the same time, he continued, the project will be the reason that «Gazprom» again will dictate Poland prices.

As noted by the official representative of the government of Germany Steffen Seibert, the Berlin believes that the consequences of the Nord Stream 2, including Ukraine, needs to be controlled. «We in the past talked a lot about it, for us it was always important,» he said.

«Nord stream — 2» worth 9.5 billion euros, involves the construction of two pipelines from the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The pipeline will be laid alongside the «Nord stream».

Against is the construction of a number of States, including Ukraine and the USA. Kiev is afraid of losing the income from the transit of Russian gas, and Washington’s ambitious plans to export LNG to Europe.
