Polish government wants to change the country's constitution to confiscate Russian assets

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wants to confiscate the frozen Russian assets in order to be able to purchase the energy resources the country needs with them.

Earlier, the Polish authorities froze the assets of Russian enterprises and individuals totaling about $33 million. There is currently a debate going on in the Polish parliament to amend the country's constitution to allow for the confiscation of frozen Russian assets.



Morawiecki is urging representatives of opposition parties to support his proposal to amend the constitution to allow for the confiscation of frozen assets. The head of the Polish government proposes to purchase gas or coal with the withdrawn funds, which, according to him, will lead to a reduction in gas and electricity tariffs for citizens of the country.

After the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, Western countries froze about half of the total number of foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Federation located abroad. The amount of frozen assets amounted to about $300 billion.

In April last year, the head of the Russian central bank, Elvira Nabiullina, announced that lawsuits were being prepared by the Russian authorities to challenge the illegal freezing procedure.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the policy aimed at containing and weakening the Russian Federation a long-term strategy of Western countries and stressed that this is detrimental to the entire global economy.

      You won’t believe it, that’s how they will whine when they receive cabbage soup from Russia. "Because of some 33 billion for the sixth time the country was divided, the damned aggressors!!!"
      They have this in life - first grab someone else’s, then get in the eye and whine for it - think, it’s like that, a little Polish joke, like grab the Teszyn region together with Germany ... Or grab from Germany after WWI ... Or from Russia after the revolution ... And then bam - a meeting of faces with a boot - and they sit whining

        33 million! hi At the state level, this is even less than 30 pieces of silver!! Yes Polish greed for someone else's even more than their arrogance and ambition.

      I wonder what he means by assets? Something I strongly doubt that this is like real money - what should they do in Poland? This means that this is the cost of any good, such as Gazprom's. But it still needs to be sold! You can't exchange shares for a pipe for coal.. Will there be many who want to buy stolen goods? For which, without options, the locomotive of lawsuits will be pulled? And it's not a fact that they can be kicked off so easily ..

      from the fact that they buy energy resources, a debt of 33 will not go anywhere, and they will plow in the Kolyma region until everyone has worked

    It is time to lay down those monuments near the border that were erected according to forged and falsified documents.

    And they will change. And they confiscate. And what will Russia do to them? request

    The Polish border is still far away. And the distance is not even in kilometers, but in the years and lives of the most trained and motivated Russian soldiers.

      And what will Russia do to them?

      It can do a lot of things .. And we have some kind of Polish assets, and most importantly, we can tightly close any trade with them from Southeast Asia by rail .. And not only from Southeast Asia.

      True - looking at what is happening, you strongly doubt that our leaders have Faberge for such an answer .. It seems that convinced Tolstoyans and non-resistances to any evil are sitting there .. If, of course, it comes from the blessed West ..

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wants to confiscate the frozen Russian assets in order to be able to purchase the energy resources the country needs with them.

    Morawiecki, if a thief breaks into your house, steals money and buys firewood with that money, then you will call him a thief; if you steal money from your bank, you will also call them thieves. And here's how to call you stealing not from a neighbor 1000 euros, but from a neighboring state 330 lemons. For such theft in any state, such people are hanged, not shot. And you call on others to be accomplices.
    Now I understand why you Poles, or rather the Commonwealth, were divided into parts on September 22, 1772, so that this thieves' misunderstanding would disappear from the face of the earth.
    This should not be forgotten by other thieves. Thieves have always been treated harshly, and in the Russian Empire, besides this, they burned the word on their foreheads - VOR.

    Polen sollte wie die Ukraine ein für alle mal aufgeteilt das
    Volk als Sklaven verkauft und auch so behandelt werden!
    Wer nach so vielen Teilungen und verlorenen Kriegen immer
    noch eine so große Fresse hat, muss endgültig entnazifiziert
    und ein für alle mal unumkehrbar beseitigt und von der Landkarte
    getilgt werden!
    Polen wäre meines Erachtens noch vor Deutschland genau
    das richtige Testgelände für die neuartigen Hyperschallwaffen
    Russlands; ich kann die freche Fresse von Duda einfach nicht
    mehr sehen und hören, von Kaczynski ganz zu schweigen!!!

    Well, in principle, the EU can do a feint with its ears. Like this money (ours) is the payment of reports to the Poles from the Germans. And we can say that this money was lent at EU interest (draw any number of interest per day), print rubles for the amount of the confiscated minimum for this business (according to IMF rules, we can print as many rubles as we hand over currencies), We have rubles and so many more But with interest, the EU sticks out to us and everything is legal. They will buck up to give, so excuses will not work in any court and you can safely take their assets in any country in the world where we have influence and their property.

    This is a "sweet" word - confiscationwhatever you can do to make it happen. And in general - "the spool is small, but expensive." But it will not harm the Poles to remember that: “Do not hope that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements you signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper they are written on. Therefore, it is worth either playing fair with the Russians, or not playing at all. ” (Otto von Bismarck). winked

    And don't all these sheep know that under the rules of any kind of law - any changes in the law aimed at tightening or worsening conditions for the one for whom they are introduced - can only be applied to new cases?
    Enforcement of a tightening law in relation to an already existing situation is impossible. Since a tightening law NEVER has retroactive effect and cannot be used to regulate a situation that happened BEFORE it was adopted.

      purely theoretically, they can refer to the fact that international norms that speak of the non-retroactivity of the law, which the signatory states have undertaken to comply with (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms), are adopted in relation to individuals, not states.
