PGE spent PLN 42 million on the implementation of the provisions of the environmental decision for Turów, the complaints against the decision are groundless, PGE president Wojciech Dąbrowski told PAP.

"From the beginning, we have been of the opinion that the complaint of the German city of Zittau and environmental activists from Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany is completely unfounded."
