Dmytro Kuleba: Kyiv And Warsaw Intend To Prevent The Implementation Of Nord Stream 2

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and his Polish counterpart Jacek Czaputowicz discussed cooperation in the energy sector and the role of both countries in ensuring energy security in Europe during a two-day working visit to Warsaw, the press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported.

According to the report, the parties discussed cooperation in the energy sector and the important role of Ukraine and Poland in ensuring energy security in Europe. The parties also agreed to develop last year's trilateral Memorandum between Ukraine, Poland, and the United States on cooperation in the energy sector to diversify energy supply sources.

"The parties stressed that the Russian Nord Stream 2 project poses a threat to the energy security of the whole of Europe and agreed to take further steps to prevent its implementation," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline by European contractors was stopped due to US sanctions. Gazprom assured that the Nord Stream 2 project, which is already almost 94% complete, will be completed by the Russian side.
