Morawiecki for Bloomberg: We are the best in the European Union

 During the interview with Bloomberg TV Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday that - according to the latest data of the European Commission and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Poland will have the smallest decline, so the recession will be the weakest within the European Union. The previous forecast pointed to approximately 4.6%, current early indications predict that this result may be even better - approximately 3.5% on the minus side - emphasized the PM.

- From the perspective of GDP, we will be the best or one of the best countries in the European Union. This will be reinforced by the European Reconstruction Plan and the Multiannual Financial Framework, which we negotiated for 4 days and 4 nights in Brussels a few weeks ago. And with success. (…) It will be a very good investment support for the coming years - he added.

Prime Minister Morawiecki also shared his opinion on the Alexei Navalny case and the possible consequences for Russia:

- The example of Alexei Navalny sadly shows how Russia treats its citizens and opposition leaders. Such action should not only be condemned, but it should be followed by very strict sanctions and interventions - he assessed.

- The politicians finally admit that Nord Stream 2 is a political project - without political involvement it would have been abandoned a long time ago. Taking into account the recent events in Belarus, where Vladimir Putin is clearly threatening to intervene and what he did to Alexei Navalny - this should be the last call for Germany and the European Union towards Nord Stream 2 - he said.
