Polish MEP Jacek Sariusz-Wolski said that the country’s residents were allegedly deceived by German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the sake of implementing the Nord Stream 2 project.
In an interview with Gazeta Polska Codziennie, he said that he was personally offended by Berlin’s decision to complete the pipeline.
Sariusz-Wolski was also outraged by the fact that German policy towards Russia was not coordinated with Poland.
Warsaw was initially skeptical about Nord Stream 2; some Polish politicians still call the project political and call for it to be closed. Moscow and Berlin have repeatedly stressed that the gas pipeline was built exclusively for commercial interests, and that it is beneficial to both Russia and the European Union.
The construction of Nord Stream 2 has now been completed, but before its launch it is necessary to complete a number of technical and legal measures.
