It is said in the statement of Naftogaz of Ukraine. "The Ukrainian parliamentarians who signed the new letter of a protest emphasized pernicious consequences of the Nord Stream — 2 project both for Ukraine, and for the European Union. They also expressed indignation of the fact that the decision on "Nord Stream – 2" was obviously accepted without wider European context" — Naftogaz explains. Signers noted that only the single countries will receive benefits from the project which will have "large-scale destructive consequences for economy and to feed political corruption". As deputies note, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are afraid that after start of the project Gazprom will be able to impose unreasonable contract conditions to strengthen the domination in the European market. As for Ukraine, according to parliamentarians, it can be cut off from energy resources. At the same time, according to them, transit of gas for Ukraine - not only a source of income, but also "an important component of a system of national defense". Earlier group of europarliamentarians together with 20 politicians from EU Member States sent the letter to the German chancellor Angela Merkel with a request to reconsider a position of Berlin concerning "Nord Stream-2".
