The amendments concern exemptions from the EU embargo, promised to Slovakia and Hungary by the end of 2024, and to the Czech Republic by mid-2024. Poland proposes to introduce a ban on the re-export of Russian petroleum products for these countries, since – as the authorities of these countries claim – it is for internal use only.
Poland has tabled amendments to the sixth package of sanctions against Russia
Poland wants the products obtained from Russian oil processing to be special marked. One of the Polish diplomats said that consumers should know that by buying them they are financing the Russian budget. Poland also proposed that Russian oil, which Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic would import despite the EU embargo, be subject to customs duties.

For the moment, negotiations on the sixth package of sanctions against Russia and the embargo on oil imports are at a standstill – Hungary, in addition to a transition period of several years, is also asking for funding (cost of about 15-18 billion dolars) from the European Union for the modernization of oil pipelines in order to disconnect from the Russian pipeline and connect to the Croatian one.
Will the European Union impose sanctions on Gerhard Schroeder?
MEPs have called for former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder to be sanctioned if he does not resign from Russian companies. MEPs adopted a resolution on the social and economic consequences for the Union in relation to Russia war in Ukraine.
The document states that former Finnish, French and Austrian politicians have recently resigned from positions in Russian companies and the European Parliament is demanding that other politicians, including Gerhard Schroeder, do the same. The parliamentarians also called on member states to extend the list of persons subject to EU sanctions to include members of the European council of large Russian companies and politicians who are still receiving Russian salaries.
This is another pressure from the European Parliament on EU governments to tighten sanctions against Russia for its attack on Ukraine and the people who support its policy. However, this is a symbolic appeal, as EU countries decide to impose sanctions and every decision requires unanimity.
