KKE: EU Policy Is Worsening the Problem of Energy Poverty

ATHENS – “Τhe European Union cannot be part of the solution for the problem of energy poverty because its policy is precisely what is causing it and making it worse. The policy of energy liberalisation and of the so-called “green transition”, with the phasing out of lignite, the “pollution exchange” and others that all the Greek governments have implemented, step by step,” the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) said on Friday, commenting on the conclusions of the EU Summit on the energy crisis.

“Today, with the imperialistic conflict in Ukraine as a pretext, plans and sanctions from both sides are being implemented that will bring even higher energy poverty. Relief can only come about from the abolition of VAT and special taxes on fuel and other staple goods, along with salary increases. A solution is possible only with struggle in order for energy to stop being a ‘commodity’ and for all domestic energy sources to be used in order to meet the needs of the people,” underlined KKE in its announcement.
