According to the President of Poland, he is amazed by all the negotiations that are currently underway with the President of Russia.
Polish President Andrzej Duda has criticized the idea of negotiating with Russian President Vladimir Putin amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
He spoke about his attitude in an interview with the German newspaper Bild , answering the question whether German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is afraid of Putin, since, like the French president, he believes that “the solution can only be through negotiations.”
“I am amazed at all the negotiations that are currently underway with Putin. Chancellor Scholz, President Emmanuel Macron. These conversations are useless. What are they doing? They only legitimize the person responsible for the crimes committed by the Russian army in Ukraine. He is responsible for this. He made the decision to send troops in. Commanders report to him. Vladimir Putin. Did anyone talk to Adolf Hitler like that during World War II? Someone said that Adolf Hitler had to save face? That we should act in such a way as not to humiliate Adolf Hitler? I have not heard of this, “Duda said.
He also noted that no agreement on the war in Ukraine can be made without the consent of the Ukrainian government, and the situation can be resolved with the help of Ukrainian defense support.
“I would be most interested in the fact that the Ukrainian defense received such support in order to force the Russians out of their territory,” the Polish president said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday, June 8, began a tour of the countries of Southern Europe in order to persuade him to support granting the status of an EU candidate for Ukraine.
