“For Russia, it does not make sense to keep supplying Poland with gas”, wrote Duma deputy Alexei Pushkov on his Twitter page .
President of Poland Andrzej Duda, during a discussion in Davos, said that Poland wants to buy Russian gas on the same terms as Germany.
“Poland will play its games until Russia stops selling it gas entirely – get it from Africa, we don’t care. There is no point in appeasing Warsaw,” Pushkov wrote.
The Polish state-owned oil and gas company PGNiG buys most of its gas from Russia’s Gazprom. The long-term contract with Russia expires in 2022.
The Baltic countries and Poland traditionally complain of dependence on Russian energy and the need for diversification. Warsaw considers the current contract to be unprofitable.
From the Polish side, there are often promises to completely abandon Russian gas after 2022. It has also called on the US for more sanctions against Russia, for the Nord Stream 2 project with Germany.
