Describing Polish plans, “Bild” points out that it is supposed to be cheaper in Poland also electricity; the prime minister announced reduction of VAT to 5% for the next four months.

“In order to contain the galloping heating costs, the VAT on gas will also be abolished by the end of July. Fertilizers are also exempt from tax, production of which has suffered especially due to high gas prices”

Morawiecki called the surge in gas prices “terrible” and blamed it on the policy of the Russian energy company Gazprom, writes “Bild”.
