According to the sources of the Polish Press Agency, Poland presented in Brussels a proposal for a new set of sanctions against Russia for its aggression against Ukraine. This would be the 11th package of restrictions against this country.

In the document seen by PAP, Poland proposes e.g. imposition of further sanctions on the energy sector (a ban on oil imports via the northern section of the Druzhba pipeline and the introduction of compensation mechanisms for oil from Russia not covered by the EU embargo), a ban on the import of diamonds from Russia, a ban on providing ICT services to entities from the Russian Federation and tightening of export control regulations for dual-use goods and technologies.

New package of sanctions against Russia – Poland’s proposal

– Poland, together with the Allies, is again submitting proposals for ambitious sectoral and trade sanctions against Russian institutions, criminals, oligarchs and propagandists. We want to help the Commission in urgently presenting the draft of the next, 11th sanctions regulation. We count on the cooperation of the Swedish Presidency. Together with our coalition partners, we will work to obtain unanimity among the EU 27, Permanent Representative of Poland to the EU, Andrzej Sadoś, told PAP.

Poland demands, among other things, including Russian sanctions on nuclear energy, banning the import of aluminum from Russia, extending the definition of ships that are banned from EU ports, cutting Gazprombank off from the SWIFT system and freezing the assets of further Russian banks, and banning the export of USD banknotes from the European Union to Russia.

Poland’s postulate is also to include on the sanction lists more people and entities that support Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

A senior EU official declined to comment on Monday about the possible timing of any new restrictions.

The adoption of sanctions by the European Union requires unanimity of the 27 Member States.
