Senator responded to Poland’s statement about Russia’s attempts to spoil its reputation

Poland’s attempt to catch Russia in an effort to ruin its reputation in Europe and the world is cynical and has nothing to do with reality, said Konstantin Kosachev, head of the Federation Council’s foreign affairs committee, in an interview with TASS.

“Cynical, unacceptable and has nothing to do with reality. So this is from the series” from a sore head to a healthy one, “said the senator. Responding to an early statement by the Polish authorities, he stressed that Poland is one of the most anti-Russian countries in Europe, while at the same time it is taking its position to the level of state policy.

Kosachev added that if you wish, you can find many official statements by Polish politicians discrediting Russia and its reputation. According to him, such opinions are voiced for a reason. “The meaning of this policy is to present Poland as the vanguard of the struggle between the” democratic West “and the” authoritarian East “, as well as enlist additional support from allies in the role of the” front-line state of Poland, “the senator explained.

Earlier, Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, reacted to the accusations. He believed that the statement by the Polish authorities was connected with the fact that Warsaw had chosen Moscow as the target of constant attacks.

In November, Stanislav Zharin, Press Secretary of the Coordinating Minister of the Polish Special Services, noted that Russia is allegedly trying to make Poland a problematic country for the European Union. According to him, we are talking about “provocations, diplomatic attacks”, as well as Russia’s activities in the financial and energy sector. The official did not provide any evidence.
