EN Energy security is a key element of national security. It is difficult to formulate a proper 12structure for strategic culture or political strategy without considering this key ele-ment. Therefore, it is necessary to discuss particularly important factors shaping the Polish security policy: diversification of energy ties, adaptation of the national tech-nical infrastructure to contemporary requirements of the raw materials market, and 16bilateral and multilateral agreements on energy security problems. The influence of the Russian Federation plays an important role in Poland’s energy security policy. Bilateral relations in the energy sector affect Poland's energy security and foreign policy. They also affect Poland's internal policy and, therefore, should be regarded as crucial for the Polish national interest. The research problem of the paper used by the authoris: How and by what means, methods, techniques, and forms does the Russian Federation influence Poland's en-ergy security and what consequences does this have for our country? The aim of the 24paper is to present the state of Poland's energy security and the desirable prospects in the relations with the Russian Federation in the context of natural gas and crude oil supplies. Thispaper uses such research tools as analysis, synthesis, comparison, and inference to determine Poland’s current energy.
