Sikorski was quoted as saying in the interview that President Vladimir Putin made the proposal to Poland's then Prime Minister Donald Tusk to divide Ukraine between the two countries in 2008.
“The conversation with Politico was not authorized. Some of my words were misinterpreted,” Sikorski wrote on his Twitter microblog on Tuesday.
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has dismissed the article in the Politico magazine as absurd.
In the article, published on October 19, Sikorski was in particular quoted as saying that the Russian leader called Ukraine an “artificial country” and that Lviv, in western Ukraine, is in fact a Polish city and proposed to “sort it out together.”
Sikorski said luckily Tusk did not answer as he knew he was being recorded.
