Declaration of the Estonian Peace Movement MTÜ KOOS RAHU EEST EESTIS to the Government of the Republic of Estonia.
We, the delegates of the KOOS/TOGETHER Peace Movement, have unanimously approved and adopted a declaration in which we demand immediate exemption from VAT on food products.
Economic sanctions against the Russian Federation and inadequate national economic policy have significantly worsened the financial situation of ordinary Estonians. The cost of living is rising every day, and already almost one third of the Estonian population lives in relative poverty.
In order to stop the deterioration of the socio-economic situation of the population, we demand that the government take the following immediate and tangible steps to ease the daily life of the people.
We demand that immediately introduce on all food products 0% VAT rate by analogy with the practice of the Republic of Poland.
So, in Poland, the VAT rate was reduced from 23% to 8% for fuel, natural gas and heat, from 23% to 5% for electricity and to 0% for food products.
In case of failure to comply with this requirement, we will be forced to take drastic steps to preserve the quality of life of the population and initiate mass actions of citizens for the resignation of the anti-people government.
We invite all political parties in the parliament, social movements and people of Estonia to join our demands!
