WARSAW, May 5. /TASS/. Poland is using the conflict in Ukraine as a pretext for pushing the United States to anti-Russian activity, European Parliament member from Poland, candidate for the republic’s presidential post Janusz Korwin-Mikke told TASS in an interview on Tuesday.
They say in Warsaw that the situation in Ukraine is bad and that Poland feels that it is under threat, he said. This is an argument for the American "hawks" to conduct anti-Russian activity.
According to the politician, Poland as a NATO member is tossing up arguments that are used in the US internal political debate.
Those parliamentary majority members that introduced in Ukraine the laws to recognise [Stepan] Bandera as a national hero, as soon as they get from the Polish side the money and weapons they are waiting for, they will immediately demand the return of the lands in the east of Poland, he said.
According to Korwin-Mikke, he is for friendly relations with Moscow. There is no sense in bad relations with Russia, he said.
Answering a question about the evaluation of historical events that has been made in Poland in recent years, the presidential candidate said that "history is written by the power." As a result it turns out that the Auschwitz Nazi death camp was liberated by Ukrainians, he added. And if we were promoting Georgia, it would turn out that Auschwitz was liberated by Georgians. We live in a democracy where it is necessary to have the support of the population’s majority. Therefore, Korwin-Mikke said, politicians "are inventing all that foe stories.".
