(CIANEWS, Feb 19) The Czech Republic should support the Nord Stream 2 project, because it will lead to an increase of the strategic role of the state in international gas transport. Another benefit will be the increase of tax revenues from the transport grid. ERO chairperson Vladimír Outrata said this at the 208th Žofín Forum. He added that the project also eliminates the risk of expensive liquidation of a major part of the transit grid reaching tens of billions of korunas.
