The Polish actions against the Nord Stream 2 are largely motivated by politics – they are aimed against the Russian-European energy cooperation. The Polish energy regulator, de facto, executes an order, which corresponds to the interests of the USA, which is looking forward to weakening this project.
Such behaviour from Poland creates serious problems for this country – being an EU member, Poland implements a policy inconsistent with EU policies. Poland undermines its own perspectives of development – Russia has the potential to be a large trading partner for this country.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Nord Stream 2 Project, suggesting the idea that particular European countries protest against it because of the position of the United States.
The statement that the Polish authorities are against the construction of Nord Stream 2 because of the USA's position is a conspiracy theory. The Polish authorities have repeatedly stated that Nord Stream 2 is incongruent with the goals of the EU's energy policy. In the opinion of Poland, the pipeline would lead to further monopolisation of the market rather than the diversification of gas supplies to Europe.
