Abstract

Radek Hábl, an expert on foreclosures in the Czech Republic, and his colleagues have recently recorded an 11 percent year-on-year increase in foreclosures in the Czech Republic. In total, about one and a half million people in the Czech Republic are in debt slavery, but that is not all of the cases , some of them are not recorded statistically. From nine percent of the poor before the pandemic, the number has now risen to 16 percent. And that's before the large rises in energy, mortgages, food and everything else that await us in the coming months. In an interview with Jan Čulík, Radek Hábl warns that a fivefold increase in energy prices will probably occur in the Czech Republic in the autumn of 2022. The increase in harsh poverty will lead to a serious destabilisation of the Czech Republic, just as Putin has intended - unless the government stands up and takes decisive action against it. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Friday 22nd April 2022.
