Ukraine and Poland have called the agreement between the United States and Germany on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline “the resignation from attempts to stop the launch,” the decision which has created “political, military and energy threat for Ukraine and Central Europe.”

That’s according to a joint statement by Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and his Polish counterpart Zbigniew Rau, released on MFA Ukraine’s website on Wednesday.

They are confident that the agreement published on July 21 significantly deepens the crisis that’s been ongoing since the decision was approved to lay the pipe bypassing Ukraine – mere months after Russia’s invasion and illegal annexation of Ukrainian territory.

Top diplomats believe the U-turn from efforts to halt NS2 construction is “increasing Russia’s potential to destabilize the security situation in Europe, perpetuating divisions among NATO and European Union member states.”
