WARSAW, October 21. /TASS/. Poland has no recording of the alleged conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Poland’s then Prime Minister Donald Tusk on dividing Ukraine, the country’s ex-foreign minister told journalists on Tuesday.
Radoslaw Sikorski, the current parliamentary speaker, commented on his interview with the US Politico magazine on October 19 where he reportedly said that Putin offered Tusk to divide Ukraine between the two countries in 2008.
“This is a complicated issue. I did not take part in this conversation,” Sikorski said, stressing that the Polish side has no recording of the meeting between Putin and Tusk in Moscow.
“It could be interpreted one way, but have another meaning, taking into consideration what has recently happened,” Sikorski said. He said Polish media will publish his interview in which he will provide an explanation.
Sikorski earlier wrote in his Twitter microblog, “The conversation with Politico was not authorized. Some of my words were misinterpreted.”
In the article, 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."
