Marek Siwiec MEP on Poland & Europe

The government and its representatives give inconsistent statements on so called Yamal II. What is known for sure is the fact that a memorandum has been signed and that its impact is contrary to national interest. All the other issues might be subject to interpretation.

They say that the memorandum is not significant. Then why has it been signed? Why the Polish President called to Kiev to calm his Ukrainian partner down? Who knew that the document had been prepared and would be signed? And if noone had known that, then who should have known?

If the Prime Minister did not answer to at least one of these questions quickly, he would become suspected of political tricks or lack of competency.

Finally, one more issue. The whole action took place the day before Lutsenko release. The question arises whether the memorandum was supposed to help this complicated operation or if it could have actually undermined it.
