President Petro Poroshenko says that the majority of EU countries start to understand the real goal of the Nord Stream 2 project.

"The Nord Stream 2 is not an economic project, the project is absolutely political. The goal of the project is to damage Ukraine and many other members of the European Union and NATO member,” Poroshenko stated at a press conference in Brussels, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

In particular, Poroshenko stressed that the implementation of this project creates great risks for the European economy: "Why spend tens of billions of dollars to make the European economy less efficient, less competitive and the European Union's energy policy more dependent on Russia? The majority of EU countries start to understand the real goal of the Nord Stream 2”.

He also added that during the NATO summit the issue of the Nord Stream 2 project took a significant part of the discussion during his bilateral meetings with the heads of the NATO member states.

As reported, on July 11-12, 2018, Poroshenko was on a visit to Belgium where he participated in the NATO summit at the invitation of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
