MOSCOW, 13 Oct – PRIME. Novatek will again go to court to protect its rights in Poland, after the country introduced temporary management in a subsidiary of Novatek Green Energy, considering such actions of the authorities as banditry and robbery, Novatek CEO Leonid Mikhelson told reporters.
Previously, Poland introduced temporary management in Novatek Green Energy.
“We immediately appealed to their court, appealed to the European Court. So far, there are no answers. After we have appointed the manager, we will appeal again. But I think that this is just robbery, banditry, nothing more,” Mikhelson said at a briefing in as part of the Russian Energy Week.
Poland also imposed sanctions in April on 50 Russian individuals and legal entities, including Novatek. However, because of this, several dozen communes (districts) of Poland were left without liquefied gas, which were provided with fuel by Novatek Green Energy.
Realizing this, the Polish government ordered the Novatek division to transfer its own gas transportation infrastructure to Polish companies. In this regard, Novatek appealed to the courts of Poland and Europe.
Russian Energy Week takes place in Moscow on October 12-14. RIA Novosti acts as an information partner of the forum.
