Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, leaned on the Poles in his article. He accused the country of reckless actions. He therefore threatened a military confrontation with Russia and Belarus, and even a third world war.
The former Russian president wrote an article for the Rossitskaya Gazeta newspaper on the occasion of Saturday’s National Unity Day. The holiday, which was established in 2005, celebrates the expulsion of Poles from the Kremlin in 1612.
And the former Russian president leaned on his western neighbor, the website polsatnews.pl pointed out. “Immediately after Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine in February 2022, Poland became one of the most furious members of NATO and the EUproclaiming full support for the bloody Kiev regime and a harsh confrontation with our country,” he complained about the support of the attacked country after the Russian invasion.
It therefore warns of far-reaching consequences for the entire world. “The strengthening of the Polish army and the Polish military presence in Ukraine could provoke a direct confrontation between Warsaw, Belarus and Russia,” he wrote. “In this case, the allied group will respond adequately to prevent threats that come from the evil ambitions of the Polish establishment,” he added.
At the same time, Medvedev threatens an even bigger conflict. “Poland will then play the role of the ‘European hyena’ that started the third world war,” he stated.
It is not the first time that Medvedev has rhetorically attacked Poland and other allies of Kyiv, including the Czech Republic. He also often emphasizes that Russia has nuclear weapons and justifies aggression in Ukraine.
