Poland urges Europe to abandon Russian gas

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski has said that his country does not intend to extend its gas supply contract with Russia, which is set to expire in 2022.

In an interview with the Polish Radio, he stressed that Warsaw calls on other European countries to follow its example with regard to the Nord Stream 2 project.

He cited Croatia as an example, which has the potential to diversify gas supplies to the EU.

"We want to finish the Russian contract in 2022. Moreover, we urge other states, for example Croatia, to build a gas terminal in the Adriatic that could provide that part of Europe with gas from other countries of the world," the Minister said.
