Poland denies accusations of provocations against Nord Stream 2

Poland’s Armed Forces Operational Command rejects the accusations of provocations made by the operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. The alleged incident had taken place shortly before Poland was warned that Russia may use the project for provocations.

The Russian company Nord Stream 2 AG, which manages the construction of the gas pipeline of the same name in the Baltic Sea, accused Poland of a provocation involving military ships, fishing vessels and an aircraft.

The Command, responsible for the operational command of the Polish armed forces, denied these accusations on Twitter. “The Polish Navy does not conduct any provocative activities and carries out its statutory tasks in accordance with international law. The M-28B Bryza planes regularly carry out patrol and reconnaissance flights in the Baltic Sea region,” the Command tweeted.

The accusations have appeared shortly after the publication of the spokesman of the minister coordinator for secret services, Stanisław Żaryn, on one of the websites, in which he warns that the Russian Federation may use Nord Stream 2 to provoke against NATO. Poland and Ukraine warned that this project could pose a security threat.
