Morawiecki in Brussels: Poland will increase its coal production
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki informed during the European Council summit that Poland wanted to increase coal extraction. – We have a very serious energy crisis. Better to prevent than to cure. There are serious instruments that can cut us off from raw materials from Russia, emphasized Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that Poland wanted to increase coal extraction. – It is necessary – the Prime Minister stressed. – EU-wide solutions are needed to prevent the impact of Russia’s energy blackmail. We will raise the issue of launching coal-fired energy, said the Prime Minister.
The head of government emphasized that countries such as Germany, Austria and the Netherlands were returning to coal policy as part of the emergency plan. –We want to increase domestic coal production, announced the head of the government. – It is necessary from the perspective of preparing for the winter– he stressed. – Putin, the Russians want to put pressure on European societies, so that Europe turns its back on Ukraine. In order for the public to turn a blind eye to the crimes of the Russians, added Morawiecki. As he emphasized, “here the role of Poland is very important”.
