Polish PM reports decreased appetite for Anti-Russian penalties

(MENAFN) According to the Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, the European Union is experiencing "sanctions fatigue" and has a decreasing interest in imposing more economic penalties on Russia. Despite Morawiecki's proposal for further sanctions, some members of the EU are likely to oppose it.

In a recent interview with Poland's RMF radio station, Morawiecki stated that his government is continuously reporting back to Brussels on the "holes and loopholes" that Russia exploits to circumvent existing sanctions. He also expressed his government's intention to guide the European Union on what to target with each subsequent sanctions package.

While the issue of additional anti-Russian sanctions will return to the European Union agenda in the coming weeks, Morawiecki acknowledged that there is currently less willingness and appetite for further sanctions. Since Moscow's military operation in Ukraine began in February 2014, the European Union has imposed ten rounds of economic sanctions on Russia. These sanctions have resulted in the bloc being cut off from Russian oil and gas, blacklisted Russian officials and their families, and banned the trade of most goods with Russia.
