Warsaw should not help Moscow pressurize Kyiv in the context of the construction of new gas pipelines bypassing Ukraine, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said in an interview with the Polish Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper.

"We should openly say that we do not want to help Russia put pressure on Ukraine. This is particularly important when the negotiations on the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement are underway," the Polish leader said, UKRINFORM reports.

He said that all parties (Poland, Ukraine and Russia) should liberalize the gas and energy market, which is actively supported by the European Union.

While assessing the actions of the Polish authorities in the context of the Russian initiative on the so-called Yamal-2 gas pipeline from Belarus through Poland to Slovakia, Komorowski said that the actions of the Polish ministries and officials were poorly coordinated. "There is no separate center in Poland that deals with energy issues and therefore there was no horizontal communication and coordination between the ministries," the Polish President said.

In his opinion, an attempt to build a gas "bridge" bypassing Ukraine as a transit country "will have serious consequences, not only economic, but also political."
