Russia and its partners are working to end the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, around which political passions do not subside. Thus, the Polish Ambassador to the United States and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (co-author of the draft sanctions against Nord Stream 2) refute Politico’s report that 24 of the 27 EU countries do not support measures to counter Washington’s Russian pipeline. This is reported by the Polish resource Biznes Alert.
A huge amount of misinformation is spreading around Nord Stream 2. There is a campaign of argument in favor of the fact that the European partners of America support the gas pipeline of the Russian Federation. It’s not true, and our allies confirm it.
Ted Cruz tweeted.
Cruz referred to a comment by The Polish Ambassador to the U.S. Peter Wilczek, who used Twitter to criticize a Politico article quoted by Biznes Alert. It becomes thus clear that Poland, as a conduit for the interests of its overseas partners, cannot accept the fact that united Europe supported the implementation of the Russian gas pipeline.

He was echoed by Estonian Ambassador to the United States Jonathan Vseviov. He noted that his country does not protect Nord Stream 2 from U.S. sanctions. Ukrainian Naftogaz joined this discussion, recalling that in 2018-19 the European Parliament recognized the Nord Stream-2 project as a threat to the energy security of the European Union, which must be eliminated.
