Baltic States ask European Commission to turn Nord Stream on shore

Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian ministers of Economy along with representatives from Poland have addressed a letter to the European Commission asking to back the idea of onshore construction of the North European gas pipeline instead of building a sea line. They believe the onshore pipeline will reduce ecological risks of the project, as the bottom of the Baltic Sea keeps chemical weapon buried there after the world wars.
      However, Gazproms representatives have marked several times that the Baltic Sea Environment will never suffer from the pipeline. The Russian company would not like to lay the pipeline overland, as it wants to be directly connected with Germany without any intermediate parties willing to be paid for oil transit.
