Polish Climate Minister Anna Moskwa told reporters on Monday ahead of the EU energy meeting that the country expects "this [sanctions] package to include a very specific and clear date and requirement for all countries" on the oil embargo against Russia, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"We will call on the EU forum to impose a special tax on Russian raw materials" stated Moskwa explaining that "this new tax would be a fee, which would depend on the percentage of dependence on Russian raw materials, be it oil, gas or coal."

Moskwa claims that such a tax would encourage states to "accelerate the pace of de-Russification in the energy sector." She concluded by saying that she hopes Germany's recent decision was the last "vote that blocked the imposition of sanctions on Russian oil."
