Polish President Duda reveals he’s been shocked by Merkel’s call to Putin


Polish President Andrzej Duda was shocked after a call from former German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Russian leader Vladimir Putin about the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Duda stated this in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

According to him, we are talking about a joint statement by Berlin and Washington, published in July last year, according to which, in order to implement the project, it is necessary to ensure the continuation of gas supplies from Russia through Ukraine after 2024.
