Not oil and gas alone: Poland and Ukraine will be connected by an oil pipeline?
The Poles ridiculed the two-state initiative, calling it “the dumbest idea of 2022.”
Poland and Ukraine announced plans to implement a project that has no analogues in the world, we are talking about a pipeline for transporting vegetable oil. This is written by the Polish edition Interia.pl.
According to the authors of the project, this will contribute to partial unblocking of Ukrainian exports and improving food security. But readers were rather skeptical about this idea.
It will be all plain sailing
The publication notes that the office Prime Minister of Poland reported that both countries will form a working commission that will present options for localizing the pipe.
"The Council of Ministers adopted the proposal of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development on the consent of the Council of Ministers to conclude a memorandum of understanding between the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of the Republic of Poland, the Minister of Infrastructure of the Republic of Poland, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine on the development of a cross-border pipeline project for the transportation of vegetable oils from Ukraine to the port of Gdansk", the office said in a statement.
The memorandum, as explained by the Polish prime minister, will concluded for three years with automatic renewal for the next three. The document can be terminated, but not later than six months before the end of the next term. The memorandum is not an international agreement in the understanding of international public law.
"Ukraine is a major global producer and exporter of grains and vegetable oils. Before the conflict, more than 90% of these products were exported through ports located on the Black Sea," - said in a statement.
It is noted that implementation of the memorandum, in addition to unlocking Ukrainian exports and improving food security, should reduce migration pressure in Europe.
The dumbest idea of 2022...
Readers accepted this initiative of the Polish and Ukrainian authorities without enthusiasm, christening it in the comments: "The dumbest idea of 2022." The Poles believe that the construction of such an oil pipeline does not make any sense, and therefore it is simply the money of Polish taxpayers thrown to the wind.
"How much will we have to pay for this? If billions, I will fry in butter or margarine," - the reader of the edition is indignant.
Another reader believes that in this way "Poland will build infrastructure for Ukrainian oligarchs with the money of Polish citizens."
"If you combine Polish corruption with Ukrainian, then you will also have to steal from the Germans, and there will be no pipeline," - suggests the third.
