Poland to provide 25,000t of petrol to Ukraine

Poland will supply 25,000 tonnes of petrol to Ukraine to help the nation overcome shortages.

This was stated during a press conference by First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yulia Svyridenko, Ukrinform reports with reference to Radio Poland.

According to the official, the reason for the fuel shortage is that before the war, 97 percent of fuel was supplied to Ukraine from Russia and Belarus. Today these supplies are no longer available. In addition, the Kremenchuh refinery was destroyed in Russian missile strikes.

Now, 25,000 tonnes of petrol will be delivered from Polish reserves to balance Ukraine’s fuel market. The first batch will arrive early next week.

The Minister of Climate and Environment of Poland Anna Moskwa, who spoke at the same press conference, said that work was underway to increase the capacities at the Polish-Ukrainian border to streamline fuel shipments.

According to Moskwa, cooperation between Polish and Ukrainian fuel companies is now as good as ever. New supply routes and a new energy security system are being designed at the moment. Such cooperation will also continue in peacetime, the Polish official stressed.

Memo. Earlier, Ukraine suspended the government regulation of fuel prices to avoid shortage amid the ongoing war. At the same time, the price cap for petrol is set at UAH 52 per liter, and for diesel fuel – at UAH 58 per liter.
