    WARSAW, February 19. (RIA Novosti correspondent Leonid Sviridov). The cessation by "Gazprom" of transit gas delivery through Belorus does not threaten Polish energy security.

    "There is absolutely no danger that any gas delivery to individual and other consumers will be limited", said Marchin Kashuba, a press-secretary of the Polish government in an interview with RIA Novosti commenting on the decision of the Russian gas company to cease gas delivery to Belorus.

    At the Polish government's disposal there are enough gas reserves in case of various emergency situations, explained Mr Kashuba.

    As of 18:00, Moscow time, on Wednesday, "Gazprom" had to cease gas delivery to Belorus and the fuel transit through the territory of this republic.

    Belorus has enormous debts owed to Russian gas transit companies. It has not struck any contracts for gas delivery from Russia at market prices and has started unauthorized pumping-out of transit gas bound to Eastern and Central Europe.
