In a letter to the Marshal of the Sejm, Elżbieta Witek, U.S. Ambassador Mark Brzezinski warns that the provisions processed in the Sejm "could benefit countries that do not inspire trust," which "could affect the actions of the United States, bilateral relations" with Poland. Among the recipients listed by the diplomat are the heads of the Ministry of National Defense, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of State Assets, National Security Bureau, Office of the President of the Republic of Poland, and the Marshal of the Senate.
The concern is about the possibility of taking over critical infrastructure such as fuel bases.
The informant who provided Wyborcza daily with the document claims that it may refer to Chinese investments, but also to, among others, the sale of a portion of Lotos to the Saudi company Saudi Aramco (concerning 30 percent of the Gdańsk Refinery and the entire company supplying fuel to Polish airports, as well as fuel warehouses) and to the Hungarian company MOL (regarding Lotos' fuel stations). Brzezinski directly mentions such strategic infrastructure in the letter.
These operations were part of an agreement with the European Commission when Orlen, under the auspices of the PiS government, decided to absorb Lotos. Saudi Aramco and MOL are companies owned by states openly declaring cooperation with Russia's Putin and opposing economic sanctions imposed on Russia.
