The information about Kogut’s death confirmed Senator Wiktor Durlak. He was a friend of Stanisław Kogut. 

 

‘In Gorlice’s hospital died Stanislaw Kogut, the multiannual Senator from Malopolska voivodeship. He was a good, warm-hearted man. To his family and friends, I want to express my sincere condolences. Give him everlasting rest...’ – wrote the leader of Polish People’s Party (PSL) Władyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz on Twitter. 

 

The Member of the Polish Parliament Barbara Bartuś (PiS) admitted that Senator Kogut was an important and well-known Law and Justice Party’s activist in the region. ‘I am in shock. I know that he has been sick earlier, but probably the main reason for his death is COVID-19. He was a person who helped others. Every time he heard about somebody’s misfortune, he tried to help’ – said Bartuś. 

 

Stanisław Kogut was a Senator between 2005 and 2018. He also was a Polish State Railway’s (PKP) worker since the 70s.
