Poland says Ukraine ready to offer electricity as an alternative to coal

The Polish prime minister said on Friday that Ukraine is ready to help provide electricity to Poland and reduce the use of coal for energy production.

Mateusz Morawiecki, Prime Minister of Poland and Egils Levitz, President of Latvia, were in Kiev for talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on military and energy security as part of the region’s efforts to remove its dependence on Russian energy sources.

Moraviki thanked Zelensky for his “understanding” and willingness to provide the necessary assistance in a short time.

“Today, due to the Russian ban on coal, we are importing coal from all over the world,” Moraviki said at a joint press conference.

“If we don’t burn it in Polish power plants, we can use some of Ukraine’s energy if possible. The president told me that yes, it will soon be possible, “Moravecki said.

Zelensky spoke of measures to address a “potential future energy crisis”.

Leaders also discussed ways to immediately facilitate the flow of cross-border traffic, amidst a backlog of trucks on both sides but mostly waiting to enter Poland.

Moraviki referred to the gains made by the Ukrainian army against the Russian army in the Kharkiv region. But he hinted that the European Commission had so far promised to provide billions of euros in financial aid to Ukraine.

Zelensky thanked the two leaders for their efforts to release € 5 billion in long-term aid to the European Union.
