"Put it shortly, Nord Stream 2 is an unnecessary, harmful project which today splits the Western community", the Polish PM summed up. "We think this is an economic project". We also support the diversification of energy sources.

According to Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, the planned Russian-German gas pipeline North Stream-2 could trigger a Russian-Ukrainian war, EUObserver reports, quoted by Focus News Agency. "We also want Ukraine to continue to have transit gas traffic, but we believe Nord Stream poses no danger to diversification".

Morawiecki said Nord Stream 2 is likely to increase Europe's dependency on Russian gas and called on the European Union to make sure "no side has a price monopoly", Deutsche Welle reported.

Morawiecki said last month that US Energy Secretary Rick Perry also considers Nord Stream 2 to be a threat to security in Central and Eastern Europe.

As reported, Poland actively opposes Russia's construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Europe at all the levels.

In January, Germany's Stralsund Mining Authority issued permission for the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in Germany's territorial waters taking into account all potential environmental impact of the construction.

The completion of construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline can provoke an escalation of the conflict between Russian Federation and Ukraine.

Nord Stream 2 is a joint venture of Russia's Gazprom with France's Engie, Austria's OMV AG, UK-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, and Germany's Uniper and Wintershall.
