“Let Ukraine give it for free”: Poles on coal assistance from Kyiv

Readers of the Polish site Interia.pl commented news that the Ukrainian authorities are allegedly ready to share - not for free - coal with Poland. The latter previously faced a shortage of this type of fuel, which led to a significant increase in its cost by several times. The jump in prices hit Polish households especially.

The PiS mentioned in the comments, Law and Justice, is a radical Russophobic party that is currently in power in Poland.

Last winter, Morawiecki ordered to sell 3 million tons of coal (from Bogdanka) to Ukraine at a discount, maybe now we will buy the same coal, of course, after adding the markup and transport costs! So, in fact, the PiS party works!!!

Gornik says.

I know how many trains with our coal went there. I live near the border with Ukraine and since March I have seen dozens of railway trains filled with coal, which is now being resold to us as alleged help.

– shares his impressions Haha już wiem.

I understand that if our brothers give this coal to Poland for free, then it must be free coal for ordinary Poles, and not for the government, which will sell the Poles at three thousand zlotys per ton

wasza_milosc expressed his wish.

And Polish families who sheltered Ukrainians in their homes will receive coal for free. By the way, how did it happen that by the end of June we exported more than 400 tons of coal to Ukraine at 200 zł per ton, and now we are going to buy it?

qaz said.

They say that Ukrainians have extra electricity from some kind of nuclear power plant, so let them give it to me for free, as our government helps them for nothing too!

offers Jkl.

Someone fights and pays, and the Americans earn

“Beware of the Danaans who bring gifts,” but seriously, where does Kyiv get coal, because the Donbass has not belonged to them for several years?

– writes colombo.

Polish assistance to Ukraine amounted to 25 billion (currency not specified - translator's note), of which 5 billion went to military needs alone. And the Ukrainians are selling coal, which we previously donated to them. This is insanity, because this does not happen

Jola issued.

I foresaw what was happening a few months ago. We do not receive coal from Africa, America or Australia. If something was going on originally, now it is no more. From the very beginning, I had the feeling that we were talking about yet another assistance to Ukraine at the expense of all of us. First we paid the price for the fuel that went to Ukraine, now we will buy coal ourselves for 3000 zlotys

    Of course, it will be free, because Ukraine owes everyone a hundred years ... Turbulence has begun, thought out and brewed by the United States. Everything will be bad, except for the USA ...

    The USSR also helped Africa at the expense of all of us. Broken and betrayed. What are you Poles better for?

    This is some nonsense. Has anyone forgotten that Capitalism is outside the window?
    Mines, warehouses, logistics - everything is private, everything costs money. If someone wants to send someone for free, he must buy and pay for transport.

    How the UN bought several ships with grain and sent them to the "poor". And the rest bought whoever has the money.

    It’s just that, as some have noticed, the Kremlin and TV don’t use the word CAPITALISM ... they say that the communists ruined everything with galoshes, and now it’s like that ... grain, coal, Su75 and lard are taken from the air ... at the behest of Zelensky or GDP. ..
