Mateusz Morawiecki believes that the use of the aggressor's money is fully justified, since not only Ukraine, but the entire European Union suffers because of the war unleashed by Russia.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told reporters what topics were discussed EU leaders at an informal European Union summit in Prague, according to Wiadomosci.
According to him, Russian aggression against Ukraine has hit across Europe, leading, in particular, to higher energy prices. Morawiecki presented the Polish concept of price reduction at the summit, noting that the only tool that is entirely in the hands of the EU is CO2 emission quotas. Today, because of them, electricity generation is more expensive.
The Prime Minister noted that Poland is well aware of the need for climate policy, but today Europe is in a very difficult situation.
“We are under enormous stress, related to the war in Ukraine. We need to use the tools that we have in our hands,” he said. “As if in times of enormous financial need, you store gold bars somewhere in a safe and do not use them for the benefit of the inhabitants.”
According to Mateusz Morawiecki, the summit discussed whether a new fund should be created to solve the problem. He pointed out to his colleagues a financial source that is “relatively easy to obtain,” these are the frozen assets of the Russian Federation.
“They amount to about 350 billion euros,” the prime minister said. “Today, these funds can be used for the benefit of Ukraine, as well as for the needs of residents of the EU and Poland”.
