RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The Polish leadership’s remarks about Russia “as a cancer” and its contribution to Ukraine encourage the Russian Federation to have Poland “line up for denazification,” according to Oleg Morozov, chairman of the State Duma’s Control Committee.
“With its statements about Russia as a ‘cancer’ and the ‘contribution’ we have to pay to Ukraine, Poland encourages us to put it in the first line of denazification after Ukraine,” Morozov wrote on his Telegram channel.
Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in a column for the Telegraph that he considers the Russian world “a cancer that poses a deadly threat to the whole of Europe” and that, in his opinion, must be “eradicated.”
Polish President Andrzej Duda also said Russia would be forced to reciprocate to Ukraine.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin described its purpose as “protecting people who were mistreated and murdered by the Kiev regime for eight years.”
He said the plan is to “demilitarize and denationalize” Ukraine and bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against the civilian population” in the Donbass.
POLAND KEEPS POKING THE BEAR
The Polish prime minister recently compared Russia to Nazi Germany and said it should be treated equally.
Mateusz Morawiecki has called the “Russian world” an imperialist ideology in an opinion piece for the UK’s Telegraph – comparing Russia to the dangers of Nazi Germany and communism.
He continued that the “de-putinization” of Russia must start “immediately,” warning that the Western “soul” would be in peril otherwise.
The Polish PM stopped short of openly calling on NATO to go to war against Russia but said the West needs to decide where to stop Russia’s march towards it.
Oleg Morozov was a deputy in the State Duma between 1993 and 2012. He was then re-elected to it in a by-election in 2020.
From May 2012 to March 2015, he worked as head of the presidential office for domestic policy. He served as a member of the Federation Council between September 2015 and September 2020. He supports the United Russia party.
Morozov’s mother was “something of an intellectual”. Before entering mainstream politics during the early 1980s, he was himself employed in the university sector. He is fluent in German.
