Polish PM calls for new sanctions as Russia ‘cope’
Mateusz Morawiecki called for stronger sanctions against Russia. According to him, Moscow is “doing a good job” with the existing ones. Earlier Gazprom refused to supply gas to the country
Russia is coping well with sanctions so far, so Warsaw is trying to develop new sanctions packages. This was stated by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at a briefing.
“So far, we see that Russia, unfortunately, is coping well with sanctions. In this regard, Poland is trying to organize the process of designing the next sanctions packages,»,— he said.
In addition, he stated that Poland would continue to implement the existing sanctions, even despite the refusal of Gazprom to supply gas to the country.
“It must be recalled that these actions on the Russian side were taken because they tried to blackmail Poland, to force us to pay in rubles. We adhere to the sanctions that are being developed by the EC and the European Council. It follows from this that we will not pay in rubles for Russian gas, — said Morawiecki.
He urged other EU countries not only to refuse to pay for gas in rubles, but also to impose duties on gas and oil from Russia, so that Moscow could not easily get new markets. In addition, he proposed introducing secondary sanctions so that the Russian budget would suffer as many losses as possible.
