Russia has suspended natural gas deliveries to Poland via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, Polish news portal Onet reported on Tuesday, citing sources within the Polish government and state energy company PGNiG, APA reports.

The information has not been officially confirmed by Moscow or Warsaw.

According to the publication, a crisis group has been set up in the Ministry of Climate Affairs. Sources claim Russia did not inform the Polish side of the halt in deliveries in advance.

Earlier on Tuesday, Poland imposed a new round of sanctions against Russian state energy giant Gazprom, which owns a 48% stake in a Polish company co-owning the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline. In addition, the representative of the Polish government for strategic energy infrastructure, Piotr Naimsky, said that Warsaw does not intend to pay for Russian gas in rubles, which is required under the new payment mechanism introduced by Moscow earlier this month.
