Ukraine has brought an action to the Energy Community Secretariat against Nord Stream-2": "This project should not just be reconsidered, it should be terminated", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk, on Monday, February 1, during a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Miroslav Lajčák.

"We are convinced that this project has nothing to do with the economy, it is an entirely political project. We appeal to the Energy Community Secretariat and the European Commission to initiate an investigation, to stop this anti-European, anti-Ukrainian, anti-Slovak, anti-Polish, to prevent Russia overperforming us, and to ensure creating a truly transparent and competitive European gas market", stressed Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The Prime Minister of Ukraine accentuated that together with the Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico they "gave a clear message to our European partners and the international community that this project must be not just reconsidered, but it should actually be suspended".

He expressed gratitude for the contribution of Slovakia to maintain gas supplies to Ukraine.

"If we are united and stay on same message, we will win this fight", summed up Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
