Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski assured the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych that the Polish authorities will not participate in gas projects of the Russian Federation, jeopardizing the interests of Ukraine, minister at the Polish President's Office Jaromir Sokołowski said referring to the conversation of Heads of State on Sunday, April 7.

"President Komorowski assured the President of Ukraine that the Polish party will not take any steps in gas cooperation with Russia, which would jeopardize the interests of Ukraine," Sokołowski said.

He noted that the gas issue was one of those discussed, along with the pardon of former interior minister Yuri Lutsenko.

The gas issue was discussed in the context of the memorandum signed on April 4 between the Russian "Gazprom" and the Polish-Russian company "EuRoPolGaz" on Yamal-2project.

"Gazprom" invited Poland to return to the project "Yamal-2", which the Russians abandoned in 1998, but instead to build a branch in Germany, to construct a new gas pipeline to Slovakia. According to the Russian gas monopoly, it will be possible to supply additional 15 billion cubic meters of gas in Poland, Slovakia and Hungary each year.

The representatives of the Polish government declared that Poland is not interested in increasing the gas supply from Russia, as it is trying to find other sources to reduce its dependence, but officially will answer after the preparation of the feasibility study of the project, which should be ready in 6 months.
