The greatest threat to Warsaw is not Russia but the kind of nationalism that runs high in Poland, believes Franz Klintsevich, the first deputy chairman of the Russian Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security. He commented on the statement made by Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki that Russia represents one of the biggest threats for his country today.
"The biggest threat to Poland lies in the processes going on in the country today," Klintsevich wrote in his Facebook account. "I mean fascism, which, as former President Lech Walesa said recently, has already taken root in Poland. It is very strange for a country that has experienced what fascism is like. And there are grounds for this ideology in the country; nationalism is just running high. "
"Our country did not give any reason for them (accusations on Morawiecki’s part - note by EADaily). I emphasize - not one,” Klintsevich writes. "It is clear that such accusations, to put it mildly, do not help improve the Russian-Polish relations."
To remind, in an interview with Politico Morawiecki said that he was very serious about the Russian threat and considered what "Russia was doing in Ukraine" "very dangerous."
We also recall that a bill that criminalizes statements about the involvement of the Poles in the extermination of Jews during World War II is currently discussed in Poland. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already spoken out against this bill, stressing that "the Holocaust cannot be denied."
