Morawiecki told reporters that the second day of the EU leaders’ summit would be devoted to economic issues. According to him, this is a good opportunity to discuss Russia’s energy blackmail.
“Russia wants to provide Europe with a very serious energy crisis for autumn, winter and the entire heating season,” he said.
Morawiecki also stressed the importance of putting in place pan-European mechanisms to prevent Russian blackmail – in particular, we are talking about restarting the coal industry.
He said Germany, Austria and the Netherlands have plans to restore coal-fired power supplies for emergencies.
Poland also “preserved coal energy” and intends to increase production “to ensure uninterrupted heating,” the prime minister said.
