Poland will present its plan to withdraw from imports of Russian oil this week, the government spokesperson said on Tuesday.

Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, said on Saturday that Poland would be one of the first, if not the first country in the European Union to completely withdraw from Russian coal, oil and gas.

On Tuesday, Piotr Mueller, the government spokesperson announced that earlier in the day the cabinet adopted draft legislation that will allow a ban on imports of Russian coal.

Asked by reporters when Poland will unveil its plan to abandon the trade in hydrocarbons with Russia, Mueller said that such a plan will definitely be presented this week by Morawiecki and the Climate Minister Anna Moskwa "because this is the biggest challenge in terms of supply changes."

Last week Morawiecki said that Poland's plan to leave from Russian hydrocarbons will be the "most radical" and "a kind of reference point for Germany and for many other countries."
