Polish sanctions against Russia

It is believed that the sanctions imposed on Russia, which are tantamount to weakening the functioning of the state and the economy, and cause hostility of other countries to the aggressor, may contribute to a faster end to the war. On the Ukrainian side, the Polish state also decided to take these steps. There are 50 Russian companies and oligarchs on the government's sanctions list. Cooperation with them is punishable by a fine of up to PLN 20 million, which is supervised by the National Revenue Administration. The published sanctions are already in force.

What are the sanctions?

 Although we can define sanctions, we are not necessarily aware of what they mean in this particular case. This includes the freezing of all funds and economic resources, prohibition of making any funds or economic resources available to such entity, and exclusion from a public procurement or competition procedure. The sanctions also apply to great Russian oligarchs.

The Council of Ministers also adopted statutory provisions blocking the import of coal from Russia at the national level. We cannot wait any longer for the decisions of the European Union - explained the government spokesman.

What about breaking sanctions and illegal cooperation?

For each attempt and breach of sanctions, you will face a 3-year prison sentence. Currently, the Polish government is working on a list of companies and people associated with the Belarusian regime. Cooperation with entities from the sanacja list is punishable by a fine of up to PLN 20 million.
