The Member of the European Parliament spoke about the policy pursued by Vladimir Putin and the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in an interview with the Energetyka24.com portal.
“The unity of the EU and the world”
Zalewska is in a group of MEPs who are in favor of stopping the construction of the German-Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. When asked during an interview, she announced that it was not too late to do so. – We need to show the unity of the European Union and the world that will not allow Putin’s dictatorship and blackmail – said the politician.
The MEP in the actions of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, sees three threats: destabilization of the European Union, destabilization of NATO and the functionality of Gazprom, which – according to the former minister in the government of Law and Justice – is supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
– This is an alarm for the European Union, which just sees what it will look like in the future – that Putin will have a real influence on the policy of the European Union – said Anna Zalewska.
Sanctions for Nord Stream 2
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced on Monday that new sanctions will be imposed on the Nord Stream 2 project. There are two entities involved in its creation. According to the American politician, sanctions were imposed on Transadria Ltd. and its vessel. The name of the second company involved in the controversial project has not been disclosed.
Can we expect penalties from the European Union as well? – In the backstage of the European Parliament, the topic that Nord Stream 2 should be stopped is being discussed. Anyway, there have been resolutions on Russia itself, where Nord Stream 2 was also mentioned, said Anna Zalewska, PiS MEP.
– It seems that this may be the only and last opportunity to devote the resolution only to the construction of Nord Stream 2 – she added.
