Diversifying deliveries is strategic goal: goverment official Poland is ready for any risk of supplies in transition period
Russia’s oldest natural gas buyer is ready to break up after more than 74 years.
Poland, which relies on Kremlin-controlled Gazprom PJSC for about two-thirds of its gas, says diversification trumps potential price cuts it could leverage from building an import link to access Norwegian fuel. That comes after the eastern European nation in 2016 completed a liquefied natural gas terminal to diversify away from the Russian gas it’s been buying since 1944.
It appears the Poles have bought in to The American President Trumps sales pitches. But then, this is an internal situation that is Polish alone, all others needs be to butt out.
The writing though, is on the wall, another aspect of American idealism against Russia. My self am not defending the Russian Federation, they can speak for them selves. What is against the grain is American expansion in Europe as a controling mechanism in the economic and political arena, we do not need this.
