Daniel Opajtec, CEO of the Polish oil refining company (BKN Orlin), said today, Saturday, that Russia had stopped oil supplies to Poland through the Druzhba pipeline.

“We are getting supplies effectively. Russia has stopped supplies to Poland, and we are ready to face that. Only 10% of crude oil comes from Russia, and we will replace it with oil from other sources,” he said on Twitter.

(PKN Orlen) said that it can supply its refineries entirely by sea, so stopping pipeline supplies will not affect shipments of gasoline and diesel to customers. Furthermore, Drogba was exempted from the sanctions imposed by the European Union on Russia after its invasion of Ukraine.

The pipeline, which supplies oil to Poland and Germany as well as Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, was excluded from the sanctions to help countries that have limited options for alternative shipments.
