Poland began to fine European companies for Nord Stream-2

Acting to please the United States, the Polish authorities continue to systematically impede the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project, using punitive measures against European companies related to the construction of the gas pipeline.




According to a Bloomberg news agency referring to the press conference of the Polish antitrust regulator UOKiK, the French company Engie Energy was fined 172 million zlotys ($ 44 million) for refusing to cooperate in the case against Nord Stream-2.

As follows from the materials of the press conference, the reason for the imposition of a fine on one of the largest energy companies in Europe was the constant and unreasonable refusal of the French to send the documents requested by the Polish regulator.

It is currently unknown whether the French company is the only victim of UOKiK arbitrariness, or whether fines will be imposed on a number of other European companies involved in the construction of Nord Stream-2.

Recall that the Polish antitrust regulator in May 2019 brought charges against Gazprom and a number of its European partners (OMV, Wintershall, Shell, Uniper and Engie).

According to UOKiK, the above companies violated the antitrust laws of Poland by acting as investors in the construction of Nord Stream-2.

However, it’s not a secret for anyone where the legs of such accusations grow: it’s enough to read the pathos of the Polish authorities about the super-beneficial price at which the United States supposedly will supply LNG to Poland.

    It's time to make Poland a country - an outcast!
    1) Decades have passed since the collapse of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact, and no one has prevented Poland from concluding an agreement with the United States, Norway, or other countries to supply gas even through a pipeline that could build Poland from Norway, even though LNG are terminals for receiving gas from the United States. .. Poland did not do anything of this, which means that the choice in favor of Gazprom was conscious and Poland’s accusations of Poland clearly show evidence of fraud by Poland
    2) Trade is a voluntary matter, and Poland could use its own coal instead of gas, but doesn’t want to — its problems .... It’s time for Russia to impose a complete embargo on trade with Poland, and explain the refusal to supply gas under already concluded contracts with force majeure , due to the fact that Polish companies did not have the right to conclude an agreement with Gazprom, since it violates the laws of Poland, and Russia does not want to violate Polish law and is ready to resume gas supplies to Poland immediately as soon as Poland finds a second gas supplier to Poland and Gazprom will no longer be considered a monopoly, violates Polish law!

      It’s time for Russia to impose a complete embargo on trade with Poland, and explain the refusal to supply gas under an already concluded contract as force majeure, due to the fact that Polish companies did not have the right to conclude an agreement with Gazprom, since it violates Polish laws and Russia does not want to violate Polish legislation and is ready to resume gas supplies to Poland as soon as Poland finds a second gas supplier to Poland and ceases to consider Gazprom a monopolist violating Polish laws!

      Then this nonsense to the court as a justification for their position to provide? Did you determine this yourself - did the Polish companies have the right to conclude a contract or not? It’s good that decisions are not for you.

      good Poland is one of the top 10 exporters of its products in Russia. And here is how and with what to press the "tail". This requires the will of our "peacekeeper", but he is kind and fluffy to our "partners".

    They are playing the tricks that in Europe no one will have anything to do with them, except for the dying Baltic.

    Poland is worried that the Yamal-Europe pipe does not empty.

    Churchill was right in calling Poland the hyena of Europe. And the basis of all this is the ambition of the Polish elite, implicated in the wildest Russophobia. Centuries go by, and he does not weaken, only sometimes falling into the shadows under the pressure of circumstances, for example, after the Second World War, finding himself in the zone of influence of the USSR.

    And someone, after all, can foul Poland itself, quite seriously. There will be something of a screeching scream.

    I don’t understand, but that some strategists were outraged by the behavior of the Poles towards their French patrons?
    This is correct, and if this did not happen, then the Poles would need to be prompted to crank it up. For the more contention they have in the pigsty, the better.
