Poland is ready to produce electricity for Ukraine at its power plants

Jul 9, 2024

Poland is working to be able to burn Polish coal without paying for emissions, and to transfer the generated electricity to Ukraine for European money.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk during a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"The issue of energy is crucial. We are currently working on it in Poland, and our experts are discussing how we can directly help Ukraine's electricity supply before the onset of winter," Tusk said.

He emphasized that all energy facilities in Ukraine are under the threat of attacks from Russia "for obvious reasons".

"We are currently working to be able to burn Polish coal, which we have a lot of now, in order not to pay for its combustion, that is, for emissions, and to send electricity generated by Polish power plants from Polish coal for European money to Ukraine through the existing energy bridge," the Polish prime minister said.

According to him, "this will not solve the problem with electricity in general, of course, but it can at least partially help Ukraine survive this difficult winter."

"And we will encourage all our partners to find creative ideas (to support the Ukrainian energy sector - ed.)," Tusk added.
