MOSCOW, January 28 â€” RIA Novosti. Russia today is the most dangerous threat to Poland, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at the world economic forum in Davos in an interview with Politico.
“Thus I treat the threat from Russia”, â€” he told, answering a question about the biggest threat to Poland.
Morawiecki also urged to prepare to “invasion” Russia to Ukraine. “And what would happen then in case of war in the Donbass, when the Russian army moves into the territory of Ukraine? Of course, we don’t know; I hope, however, not touched, but better to have the second and third lines of defense than to be without such weapons,” â€” said the Prime Minister.
Polish Prime Minister also spoke on the topic of the project of the pipeline “Nord stream â€” 2”. “Despite the fact that Germany is not a business project”, â€” said Morawiecki.

As the head of the Department of state, Moscow “using energy as political.” United States, according to Tillerson, would help the country’s quest to diversify its sources of energy supplies â€” at the expense of American liquefied natural gas.
The project “Northern stream â€” 2” involves the construction of two pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas next to the “Nord stream” â€” from the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The bill was opposed by some countries, including Ukraine, fearing to lose the income from the transit of Russian gas, and the United States, who have ambitious plans for exports to Europe, its own LNG.
