Poland and the Czech Republic decided to release emergency oil reserves to sustain operations at domestic refineries amid suspension of supplies of contaminated oil from Russia. Grupa Lotos applied to the Ministry of Energy for the permission to use mandatory oil reserves and got the green light to do so, representatives of the management board told at a press conference. 

The International Energy Agency said on Tuesday that Poland notified about the decision to release emergency oil reserves to maintain the normal operations on two refineries. 

Deliveries of the Russian crude oil via Druzhba pipeline were suspended due to quality issues, which were first reported by Belarus' Mozyr refinery on April 18. On Thursday, May 2 Belarusian pipeline operator said clean crude oil reached the border of Russia and Belarus and goes towards Mozyr refinery.
