OREANDA-NEWS The Minister of Climate and Environment of Poland, Anna Moskva, called the assertion that "Russian raw materials are always cheap" a myth, reports TASS.

At the same time, when asked by a journalist from the Polsat channel about how much the embargo on Russian raw materials would affect the wallets of Europeans, Moscow replied that this would not have a negative impact on the markets of European countries.

“We will definitely not be in a worse situation than other countries. This is the goal we wanted to achieve,” she said.

The Minister pointed out the importance of the solidarity of the EU countries in this matter.

On May 31, the EU agreed on the sixth package of sanctions against Russia, which, in particular, involve a ban on oil imports from Russia. According to the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, by the end of the year, 90% of Russian oil imported into Europe will be banned.

Among European countries, Poland became the leader in terms of rising fuel prices. According to Polish media, gasoline prices in the country have reached a record level. This is the result not only of rising oil and gas prices, but also of the depreciation of the national currency against the dollar and the euro. On May 30, the wholesale price of gasoline in Poland, including VAT, reached 7.69 złoty per liter ($1.8).
