Russia is preparing a serious energy crisis for Europe this winter

 Russia wants to engineer a profoundly serious energy crisis in Europe for the upcoming heating season, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in Brussels on Friday. During the EU summit, issues related to the restart of coal energy will be raised, he added.

At a briefing before the second day of the EU summit, the prime minister raised the topic of Russia's energy blackmail against Europe.

"It is better today to think about mechanisms, including pan-European mechanisms, which will prevent this gas blackmail, energy blackmail by Russia, so today we will raise these issues - both related to restarting coal energy" - said Morawiecki.

Morawiecki mentioned Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands as countries that return to coal-based energy based on emergency plans. "We have maintained our coal-fired energy, we want to increase domestic coal extraction - this is necessary from the perspective of winter security for the fall and winter" - he said. 

The topic of energy poverty will also be discussed at the EU summit, the Kremlin's fight with Europe is also played out at this level, the Kremlin wants to pressure European societies so that support for Ukraine weakens, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in Brussels on Friday.

He stressed that Poland is trying to keep public opinion in the West in a state of heightened awareness all the time. It is very important because the public opinion in the West is our ally in the fight for a free, sovereign Ukraine - said Morawiecki.
