“The government and television say something completely different. What kind of loser do you have to be to boost everything in two years after 20 years of Poland’s economic growth? It was enough just not to interfere, not to participate in Ukraine, not to distribute money to rich Ukrainians,” wrote samo dno.
“The main thing is that the Ukrainians are doing well, it’s not a pity even to give their lives for them. If these Duda brothers don’t take it away from us,” Władek said.
“Aid to Ukraine is Poland in ruins, but the rulers of Poland will not become poorer and, probably, will even make money on it. Poles, when will you wake up?” asked a user with the nickname Polak.
“The main thing is that there is money for guns, planes and missiles. Military equipment will protect the hungry Poles!” — wrote zero.bog.
On November 30, it was reported that the Polish authorities from March 2023 intend to oblige Ukrainian refugees to pay for housing.
