The Federation Council evaluated Poland’s plans to increase the price of gas transit from Russia
A member of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs from the Republic of Crimea Sergey Tsekov commented in a conversation with RT the statement of the authorized Polish government on energy infrastructure, Peter Naimsky, about the country's plans to increase prices for Russian gas transit.
“This is the ratio of economy to politics. Poland is a country that pursues a constant and long-standing anti-Russian policy, being held captive by Russophobic views. On the other hand, the fact that they are going to seek is positive. That is, the Poles will offer Russia something related to increased transit. At the same time, we must understand that by increasing gas transit, they also increase the price of gas for European countries, which should respond accordingly, ”Tsekov said.
Nevertheless, according to the senator, Poland will not achieve anything substantial "and will not receive consent in this matter from the EU countries."
Earlier, Naimsky announced Poland’s intention to increase the cost of transit of Russian gas through the Yamal-Europe pipeline.
