In November 2022, the foreign exchange balance was positive – 44 GWh were exported from Poland, however, this is a 92.24 percent year on year drop.

The Sejm has recognized Russia as a state supporting terrorism

In a resolution adopted on 14 December, the Sejm of the Republic of Poland recognized the Russian Federation as a state supporting terrorism and using terrorist measures. The lower house of the Polish parliament is also demanding new sanctions against the Russians for the invasion in Ukraine.

– The atrocious and illegal aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine continues. The Russian military is carrying out attacks throughout the territory of the invaded country, in which thousands of people, including many children, have died. The Russian Federation and its armed structures and formations commit acts of terror against civilian infrastructure, mass executions and abductions, sexual violence and torture, tearing children away from their families in order to subject them to russification, mass deportations of the population, forced conscription of Ukrainian citizens to Russian armed forces and theft of property. Russia repeatedly violates the Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War, the MPs wrote.

The Sejm also stated that the Russian Federation committed an act of international piracy by “using arms to block Ukrainian ports and paralyze sea communication without declaring war.” “By burning and plundering Ukrainian lands and preventing Ukraine from exporting agricultural products for a long time, it has brought the specter of famine to many countries in Africa and Asia,” the Chamber stressed.
