Legal analyses show that Russian-German gas pipeline may be illegal


Even though there is still a chance for halting the construction of the gas pipeline between Russia and Germany through the Baltic Sea, the Polish government has not undertaken any legal action to block the construction.

According to analysts, in order to block the investment the new government should first of all call into question the agreement signed between the two countries. Legal analyses have revealed that the document violates certain free trade principles. Robert Amsterdam from the Amsterdam & Peroff law office claims that Poland could prove that the choice of the pipeline's route was the result of political premises, and not economic reasons. The leaders of the two new coalition parties claim that the Baltic gas pipeline would pose a serious threat to the country's natural resource security.
