Against the background of coronavirus, Germany decides on the issue of Nord Stream-2


Germany uses the COVID-19 pandemic to take Nord Stream-2 out of EU law. This was in an interview with the Polish online publication Biznes Alert, said European Parliament Deputy from Poland Jacek Sariusz-Wolski, who is a rapporteur on EU internal energy security.


Ariush-Volsky noted that he has been dealing with gas directives, energy security issues of the EU and the countries of the Eastern Partnership program, primarily Ukraine, for a decade and a half. Therefore, it is of great importance that the representative of Eastern Europe, where energy independence is directly related to security, went to the above position.

Nord Stream 2 has undoubtedly become one of the most scandalous projects in recent years

- said the Pole.

In his opinion, the project sowed discord in the EU, shaking the unity that served as the foundation of the community. This project showed that some countries, hiding behind “dubious arguments,” put their “selfish interests” first, instead of community security. And now the German leadership is trying to limit the geopolitical consequences of the implementation of this project.

He was very disappointed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who did not stop the construction of the pipeline, even when she recognized that this was not only a business project, but also political. A turning point, he called the emergence of a new EU gas doctrine. However, he is worried about items that take Nord Stream-2 out of EU law.

The decision remains with the country in whose territory the gas pipeline ends, that is, Germany

- explained the Polish deputy.

But there is little hope for this, the Germans have already removed the OPAL gas pipeline from the directive and no one will stop them from doing the same with the EUGAL gas pipeline, which is a continuation of Nord Stream-2.

He believes that the United States turned out to be the most consistent opponent of Nord Stream-2, and American sanctions were the only effective weapon in the fight against it. He promised that he would use his position “to ward off the threat” posed by Nord Stream-2.

    It is Poland that puts its Russophobia above the interests of the European Union, and if so, then the EU should think about it - Does the EU really need a Polish parasite who lives on subsidies from other EU countries and has the audacity to ignore the interests of the EU countries that feed him !!!

        am laughing And what does Poland care about Russia and Germany ?! Let them sit and keep silent for a while, until they again banged on the bad Polish head !!! They live on German money, and even dare to tell the Germans how to live ... This is rudeness, although there is no other expectation from Warsaw, this is her usual and constant state !!! That’s why there were several sections of Poland, but the Poles history does not teach anything ...

    alarming paragraphs that bring Nord Stream-2 out of EU law

    Very soon, the Pole will stop bothering this, and Merkel understands this. It is necessary to worry about the further existence of the EU, and as a result, early termination of the allocation of money to Poland, and Trump will not give money.

    EvGal is a gas pipeline built by German firms on German soil. What really worries the Poles, who dream of building a gas pipeline from Norway for German money, by German companies, but under the wise guidance of the Poles.
