Polish PiS party launches unprecedented campaign against Ukraine, politician Czech says
In an interview with Antin Borkovskyi, host of the Studio West programme, Polish politician Mirosław Czech said that the Law and Justice party, fighting for the votes of Polish voters, wants to take away the electorate from the pro-Russian anti-Ukrainian Confederation party
He said this on Espreso TV.
"When the Law and Justice party loses to the democratic opposition, I will say that bad deeds will be punished in my lifetime. Law and Justice has launched a huge unprecedented campaign against Ukraine, including grain, refugees, and statements about the suspension of military aid - all of which should not have been done. The result is that support and assistance to refugees from Ukraine has decreased from 60% to 30%," the Polish politician said.
According to him, the negative attitude towards this support has risen. Ukrainian women are being beaten in some villages. The latest information was that a Ukrainian refugee woman was walking with her 5-year-old child, and two drunken men harassed her. And unfortunately, there are more incidents like this.
"And this is all the result of politicians' actions. I know Polish society a little, and Poles were not tired of helping Ukraine. However, there is a fault in the politicians who are trying to play on this and collect points. Law and Justice thought that it was necessary to enter the electorate of the pro-Russian anti-Ukrainian Confederation party and win over these voters. The result so far looks like Law and Justice is losing a little support, and Confederation has also lost and is losing support. And thank God if it happens. I'm telling you that bad deeds will be punished, it's not worth playing around," Czech concluded.
On October 3, Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau said that relations with Ukraine had entered a "period of decline", which explained his absence from the meeting of EU foreign ministers.
On October 4, government spokesman Piotr Müller said that Poland plans to cancel social assistance for Ukrainian refugees in the first quarter of next year - the government spokesman hopes that "there will simply be no need to continue it".
