Medvedev is again drawn to threaten Poland

Dmitry Medvedev, the Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council and former President, on Thursday posted an eight-thousand-word rant about Polish-Russian relations, calling Warsaw a “dangerous enemy” of Moscow and threatening it with the loss of statehood.

Details: The article by the former president of the Russian Federation repeats Russian propaganda clich├ęs, for example, about Poland’s “claims” to western Ukrainian lands (for some reason, this topic is very popular with Kremlin officials).


Medvedev also writes about the EU’s “hatred” of Poland and the Poles’ disdain for Ukrainians, but separately focuses on Russia’s attitude towards Warsaw.

“In the 21st century, Russia has a dangerous enemy in Eastern Europe that was revived in the person of Poland… And it should be treated exactly as a historical enemy, considering that it is, in principle, incorrigible. And if there is no hope of reconciliation with the enemy, Russia should only have one and a very rigid attitude towards his fate,” he claims.

Medvedev explains the transformation of Poland into an “enemy” of Russia through “Russophobic revisionist policy” while at the same time recalling how, at the end of the 18th century, the Russian Empire took part in the dismemberment of the then Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

“History has delivered a merciless verdict to the insolent Poles more than once: no matter how ambitious the revanchist plans are, their defeat can lead to the death of the entire Polish statehood. Will we then mourn the collapse of modern Polish statehood? There is no need to deceive. There can only be one answer: definitely not!” concludes Medvedev.
