    Europe is playing roulette and wonders if it has enough fire extinguishers

    “Europe is playing roulette. First, it announces tougher sanctions, and a day later it says let’s not go over the top. Putin has set Ukraine ablaze,” Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stated today.

    “Every day hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians wake up in fear of being bombed by Russian jets. Meanwhile, Europe is playing roulette: 1st it announces tougher sanctions, a day later it says let’s not go over the top. Putin has set Ukraine ablaze; Europe wonders if it has enough fire extinguishers,” Morawiecki wrote on Twitter today.


    Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24. In this context, many states and companies around the world have imposed economic and political sanctions against Russia. Numerous multinationals, including mining, automotive and clothing companies, have ceased their activities in Russia.


    Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on Wednesday (March 30) that Poland would do everything possible to get rid of Russian oil by the end of the year, and expressed the hope that coal imports from Russia could be stopped in May this year. 


    Morawiecki also explained that thanks to the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, the Baltic Pipe and the floating LNG terminal near Gdańsk, Poland will be able to become independent of Russian gas this year. He also called on the EU to introduce a tax on Russian hydrocarbons.
