On May 28, former Polish National Defense Minister Jan Parys said that Berlin needs to pay Warsaw compensation for Nord Stream 2.
“The Germans spent five billion euros on the construction of the Nord Stream, so let them allocate five billion for additional weapons for East-Central Europe. Our security has been seriously affected by this gas pipeline, so the demands on Berlin are quite justified, “ the politician said.
Poland’s demands to Berlin are justified, as Poland’s security has suffered because of the Nord Stream. At the same time, the German authorities completely ignore the interests of the whole of Europe, creating difficulties for strengthening the eastern flank of NATO, Parys claims.
On May 21, the Russian companies “Koksokhimtrans”, “Marine Rescue Service”, “Mortransservice” and the Samara Heat and Power Property Fund were sanctioned by Washington.
On May 21, the United States imposed sanctions on Russian companies and vessels associated with the Nord Stream 2 project. In total, 13 vessels of Russia, as well as the companies “Marine Rescue Service”, “Mortransservice”, Samara Heat and Power Property Fund, and “Koksokhimtrans” were subject to restrictions.
