OREANDA-NEWS. Polish state-owned companies will stop importing coal.

This was announced by the Minister of State Treasury of Poland Jacek Sasin in an interview with RMF radio station. “I held talks with the presidents of state treasury companies in this area. They will no longer import coal from abroad,” he said. The politician noted that the decision touches upon supplies from Russia, South America (including Colombia), Mozambique and the United States. The Minister also mentioned that the state-owned companies Polish Mining Group and Wenglokoks did not purchase large quantities of foreign coal.

On January 9, 2019, it became known that Polish energy companies were forced to begin buying coal in Russia in addition to imports from the US due to a domestic deficit.
