According to the president’s press service, this is stipulated in order No. 545/2021-rp of September 16.

“In connection with the construction of gas pipelines bypassing Ukraine and challenges in the energy sector, in particular the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project, which contains direct threats to national security and the security of the entire region, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed order No. 545/2021-rp on September 16, creating a working group to develop proposals to manage the relevant risks,” reads the report.

As reported, Russia’s Gazprom on September 10 announced the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is to ensure the delivery of Russian natural gas to Europe bypassing Ukraine.
