Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said that the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project should be blocked as it is a punishment for Ukraine's European aspirations.

"This is a purely political project. The Nord Stream-2 should be blocked. We are counting on the support of the European Commission, because it [the Nord Stream-2 project] is a means of punishment for Ukraine's European aspirations,” Poroshenko said at a meeting with Vice President of the European Commission for Energy Union, Maros Sefcovic, the president’s press service reports.

The Ukrainian president also congratulated the European Commission vice president on the anniversary of the Energy Union establishment and noted that Ukraine should become an integral part of this association.

Poroshenko also stressed that Ukraine continues to implement reforms, in particular, in the energy sector.

"We lived through the winter without Russian gas. Due to the reliability of our transit, we didn't give a chance to blackmail us and at the same time we showed the efficient cooperation with the European Commission,” Poroshenko added.
