Navalny’s poisoning is the last signal for Berlin and now Germany must stop the construction of Nord Stream 2, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said. Alexei Navalny’s poisoning and Russia’s threats to start an intervention in Belarus, should serve as an impetus for Germany to abandon the of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline construction, the head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki said. This is the last signal for the German government to stop the Russian-German project, Moravetsky told Bloomberg TV on Tuesday. "I think that after the incident with Navalny, this (the termination of construction - Ed.) Should itself happen," the Polish prime minister said. The pipeline, which runs along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, is supposed to transport gas from Russia to Germany, bypassing transit countries - Poland and Ukraine. Warsaw has long opposed this project: Poland fears that gas supplies via Nord Stream 2 will increase Europe's dependence on Russia and adversely affect transit countries. For now, the German government leaves open the question of the pipeline’s future. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas placed in doubt the continued Nord Stream 2 construction, but expressed hope that Berlin would not have to change its position on the pipeline. German Health Minister Jens Spahn also linked the future of Nord Stream 2 to Russia's position in the investigation of Navalny's poisoning. At the same time, German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not rule out sanctions against the further construction of the pipeline. This announced on Monday the representative of the German government Steffen Seibert (Steffen Seibert).
