Russia stopped sending oil to Poland through the Druzhba (Friendship) pipeline, Polish refiner PKN Orlen's chief executive Daniel Obajtek said on Twitter on Feb. 25.

The shutoff comes one day after the first of Poland's German-made Leopard 2 tanks arrived in Ukraine.

The Druzhba pipeline had been exempted from EU sanctions on Russia.

Obajtek said Poland was prepared for this, as only 10% of its crude oil had been coming from Russia, and that it will be replaced from other sources. The company said its gasoline and diesel deliveries would not be disrupted.

Bloomberg reported that the EU's reliance on Russian hydrocarbons has dropped significantly over 2022. A year ago, Europe spent $1 billon per day to pay for gas, oil, and coal from Russia, while today, it pays a fraction of that amount.

Poland is one of numerous countries that pledged to supply Ukraine with modern Leopard 2 tanks, the first four of which arrived in the country on Feb. 24, the anniversary of the invasion.

Europe still hooked on Russian gas despite deep cut

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."

According to Ukraine's Constitution, the president fulfills his powers until a newly elected president takes office. Therefore, Volodymyr Zelensky remains and will remain Ukraine's president until the end of martial law," Speaker of Ukraine's parliament Ruslan Stefanchuk said.
