http://www.kmu.gov.ua/img/1x1.gifUkraine appeals to the European partners with a request "to conduct a harsh inspection of Nord Stream-2": "We consider this project should be stopped, as it is neither in the interests of the European Union nor in the interests of Ukraine", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Brussels following the meeting of the EU – Ukraine Association Council Monday, December 7th.

"Nord Stream-2 deprives of billions of dollars of revenue Ukraine, Slovakia and Poland, but also deprives the European Union of real competition on the energy market and intensifies the monopoly of the Russian Gazprom", he stressed.

"We believe that our European partners would consider any energy projects solely from the point of view of compliance with the Third Energy Package", stressed the Head of Ukrainian Government.

Moreover, Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized that Naftogaz of Ukraine has today the best transportation capabilities in Europe.
