For Germany, it’s a ‘no brainer’ to pull out of Nord Stream 2 gas link: Polish PM

In an interview for Bloomberg Television, Morawiecki said: “With the recent developments in Belarus, where Mr. Putin is clearly threatening… intervention, and what he did with Mr. Navalny, this should be a final wake up call for Germany.”

He added that “there should be very strong sanctions” against Russia.

He reiterated Poland’s view on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, describing it as a political project and “destabilizing for Eastern Europe”.

He said that, for Germany “the decision should be a ‘no brainer’ to pull out of the project.”

Morawiecki last week suggested Russia was a "hostile regime" after Germany’s Angela Merkel said that Kremlin critic Navalny had been poisoned with a Soviet-era Novichok nerve agent in an attempt to kill him.

Morawiecki said on Twitter last Thursday: "Georgia 2008. Crimea & Donbas since 2014. MH17. Salisbury 2018. Berlin 2019. Navalny 2020. How many wake-up calls do we need to finally realize that we are dealing with a hostile regime?"

The controversial 1,200-kilometre Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is designed to have the capacity to send around 55 billion cubic metres of Russian natural gas a year directly to Germany, while bypassing the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine.

Poland has strongly opposed the project, saying it will pose a threat to Europe’s energy security by doubling Russia’s gas export capacity via the Baltic Sea.
