Poland warns EU countries from rapprochement with Russia »GoGetNews News

Poland wants to make sure that the new European Commission will continue its tough course towards Russia and is worried that some EU countries are becoming more and more loyal to their eastern neighbor, even when the Kremlin is cracking down on dissenters in their own country. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Marcin Przidach.

"It seems that some European leaders do not realize that their activity can be interpreted as a desire to warm relations, and if they really pursue such a policy, then this is a mistake," said the deputy foreign minister.

He added that the warming of relations with Russia could signal to the Kremlin that the Russian policy of escalation, in particular, the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea in 2014, would go unpunished, and this would create a dangerous precedent.

Przhidach believes that the new leadership of the European Union should heed the concerns of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic states, given their proximity to Russia and their experience in relations with Moscow.

According to the diplomat, the decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the accelerated issuance of Russian passports to residents of Donbass-controlled militants is another example of Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Poland counts on Brussels' clear European position regarding these recent actions of Russia.
