Poland Breaks Agreement On Gas Supplies From Russia

Piotr Naimski, the Polish Government Commissioner for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, claimed on Polish Radio that the Polish Cabinet of Ministers is terminating the Russian gas supply arrangement prematurely.

Poland may receive up to 10 million cubic meters of gas each year from Russia under this deal, which was valid through the end of 2022. The government of the country opted not to renew the deal. Russian Gazprom halted gas supplies to Bulgarian Bulgargaz and Polish PGNiG on April 27 due to their refusal to pay in Russian rubles.

According to Naimski, Mateusz Morawiecki’s cabinet passed a resolution on May 13 to terminate the agreement between the Polish and Russian governments.

« That deal was concluded in 1993 and is known as the Yamal agreement. We may say that the gas links between Poland and Russia have ended after 30 years, » he stated.

He added that the Polish segment of the Yamal-Europe pipeline, which used to transport Russian gas, might be utilized for German gas supply.

The Polish section of the pipeline, according to Naimski, is physically present and belongs to EuroPolGaz.
