Polish prime minister says households will have to cover rising costs

The prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, admitted that Polish households will be affected by rising costs of energy, but said that part of these costs will be covered by energy companies.

Households will be affected by an increase, but a large part of the increase has already been covered by the Polish state, for example through the law on coal subsidies, according to Morawiecki after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

The prime minister said that energy companies must cover a part of the raise by reducing their demands for higher tariffs.

He said that they can't be left untouched in the midst of this crisis.

The government has recently decided to give one-off subsidies of PLN 3,000 EUR 637 for households that use coal as the main source of heating.
