Transneft currently does not transport Russian oil in the direction of Poland. This was announced on Monday, February 27, by Igor Demin, adviser to the president of the company.
The company transports oil abroad in accordance with the export schedule approved by the Russian Ministry of Energy and route orders issued by shippers. According to Demin, the pumping of oil to Polish refineries (refineries) was to be carried out at the end of February.
“However, itinerary orders with a confirmed resource and payment for transit were not issued. In addition, operational changes were made to the schedule, excluding deliveries to Polish consumers. In this regard, oil is not transported in the direction of Poland by Transneft,” he said. TASS.
The fact that Moscow stopped supplying oil to Warsaw became known on February 25. Chairman of the largest Polish oil refinery Orlen, Daniel Obaitek, said that in recent years only 10% of all raw materials received from Russia came to Poland.
At the same time, Telegram channels admitted that Poland was left without oil due to its policy of fueling the Ukrainian crisis and transferring tanks to Kyiv.
On February 24, 2023, Polish Minister of National Defense Mariusz Blaszczak stated that Polish Leopard tanks were already in Ukraine. He thanked colleagues from Norway, Canada, Finland and other countries for the opportunity to form a second Leopard tank battalion.
Political scientist Yury Svetov, in an interview with Izvestia, did not rule out that the transfer of Leopard tanks by Warsaw to Kyiv could be the reason for the cessation of Russian oil supplies to Poland. At the same time, he pointed out that Poland is most aggressively calling for cutting off all economic ties with Russia, and is also promoting anti-Russian sanctions.
Western countries have stepped up military and financial support for Kyiv against the backdrop of a Russian special operation to protect Donbass.
