Polish President Andrzej Duda called the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline strategic blackmail from Russia and called on NATO to intervene in the situation.
Polish President Andrzej Duda called the launch of Nord Stream 2 a “strategic mistake” for the entire transatlantic community. ” He asked the representatives of NATO and the EU to think about confronting the “challenges” of Russia related to the gas pipeline. This was reported by RIA Novosti with reference to Polskie Radio 24.
Duda spoke about Nord Stream 2 at a security forum in Warsaw. He mentioned the possible cessation of gas supplies to Ukraine from Russia, bypassing his country. The President of Poland believes that with the launch of the gas pipeline, Russia has received the possibility of strategic blackmail.
“Now the European Union and NATO need to think about how to counter the political, energy and military threats and challenges that Nord Stream 2 can bring,” the Polish leader’s foreign edition quotes.
The gas pipeline from Russia to Germany was launched in early September 2021. The Ukrainian authorities objected to the launch, who believe that in this way their country will lose revenues from the transit of blue fuel. The Polish authorities are also opposed. Meanwhile, for Russia, Nord Stream 2 is only a commercial project, which is also beneficial to European countries.
