Poles underestimate level of threat from Russia - analyst
Political analyst Łukasz Adamski believes that Polish society underestimates the level of threat posed by the Russian Federation
He expressed this opinion on the Espreso TV channel
"Ukrainians are now fighting for their independence and for their country. This is a vital matter for Ukraine. However, Poles underestimate the level of threat from Russia. In the end, it is not only the Poles who are concerned. Ukrainians have been living in a state of war for two years now and have a better understanding of the threat posed by Russia. The nations that help Ukraine but have not experienced the horrors of war do not yet understand that if Ukrainians fail to defeat Russia, they will be next," Adamski explained.
The analyst stressed that politicians should work better with the public on the issue of the threat from Russia.
"This needs to be changed somehow. Polish experts and politicians understand this problem. However, in a democratic country, it is very difficult to convince society that they should prepare for war. This is a difficult task for politicians, but of course, we need to work on it," he added.
