Morawiecki also pointed to two factors which, in his opinion, contribute to the increase in inflation. – We all know that the price of gas has increased several times, 10 times from a year ago, and one and a half times.

Gazprom, Russia, is directly responsible for the increase in inflation in Poland, stated Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

– Just as the prices of energy affect household budgets, the prices of fuels and energy affect the entire economy. Russia on the one hand, and Brussels on the other, summed up Prime Minister Morawiecki.
