Russia has halted pipeline oil supplies to Poland. Unclear at this stage why and for how long.
It may come as a surprise to many that oil pipelines had NOT been shut off under the “Sanctions” imposed due to the Ukraine situation. In fact, Russia has continued to sell and ship oil to most countries in Europe despite their howling over Ukraine.
Poland is still buying Russian oil!
The deal expiring at the end of 2024 covers around 10 percent of the needs of (Polish oil firm) Orlen. That means Poland is still buying 200,000 tons of oil from Russia each month.
Now, OIL is being shut off.
This situation continues to get worse.
