WARSAW, October 21. /TASS/. The Polish opposition is demanding the resignation of parliamentary speaker Radoslaw Sikorski in connection with the row over his controversial interview to the US magazine Politico.
Sikorski claimed that back in 2008 Vladimir Putin allegedly addressed Poland’s Prime Minister Donald Tusk with a hint at the possibility of splitting Ukraine between Russia and Poland.
“We cannot have confidence and delegate such a high post to a man who demonstrated utter irresponsibility in the past and is demonstrating it now,” said the head of Poland’s largest opposition party Law and Justice Jaroslaw Kaczynski. “If somebody has heard anything of plans for splitting an existing and recognized state, that person should take certain steps. He is obliged to let the president (Lech Kaczynski was Poland’s president at the moment) know and start international proceedings.”
Sikorski earlier said on his page in Twitter that some of his statementsmade in the interview to Politico had been misinterpreted and the conversation with Politco was not “authorized.” Later, Sikorski told a news briefing Poland did not have at its disposal a recording of Putin’s conversation with Tusk.
