This is particularly the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrew Parubiy spoke with Marshal of the Polish Sejm Marek Kuczynski.
“We discussed the idea that was expressed to me in our previous meeting to the countries of our region, in particular the Baltic-black sea region could often give his position about the key events together the heads of parliaments. In particular, we have prepared an initiative to give a joint letter to the EU regarding the danger of the implementation of the project “Northern stream-2″. Unfortunately, there is no clear position among European countries regarding this project. We believe and we are convinced that this project is uneconomic, that it is directed on creation of mechanisms of influence and pressure on the European Union and mechanisms of blackmail”, – said Parubiy.
