Polish authorities proposed under the new package of sanctions against Russia, to impose additional tariffs on countries that continue to buy Russian oil, said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

- Poland proposed a special payment for equalization. If someone continues to import oil from Russia and buy it more cheaply, because the country has an interest in selling it at any cost, he will not be able to benefit, as do those countries and businessmen who have given up oil before, he said.

Morawiecki noted that there are several countries that can not give up Russian oil so quickly, in half or even a year. These are Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria.

- These countries are striving for a longer transition period. Certain concerns must be taken into account, but these countries must also be more courageous and give up oil supplies from Russia, the Polish prime minister added.
