PipelineThe cooperation between three Baltic States and Poland in various fields is increasing.   Few days ago economy ministers of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland have sent a joint letter to the European Commission asking for a support to the feasibility study on the gas pipeline that could be built on land instead of the bed of the Baltic Sea.The gas pipeline could be built in lieu of more than 1,000 kilometers long Nord Stream gas pipeline, which Russia and Germany seek to build across the Baltic Sea.The executors of Nord Stream projects have rejected an alternative to build a gas pipeline through the Baltic countries on grounds of alleged shortage of investments. Meanwhile, environmentalists believe that such a project would be way safer and cheaper.
