MOSCOW, September 19. /TASS/. A representative of Poland’s left forces Magdalena Ogorek speaks for normal relations with Russia.
At the recent presidential election in Poland she represented the Democratic Left Alliance.
"Probably, I will surprise you by saying during the election campaign we received more often questions not about abortion, but when we shall bring to normal the relations with Russia," she said in an interview with the Vesti v Subbotu weekly show on the Russian television, as she commented on fears the Polish have in connections with "Europe’s excessive liberalism."
The Russians and Polish should not be enemies, she said.
"During the election campaign I never came across anti-Russian moods," she said. "We, the Polish, do not suffer from Russia phobia. Sure, geopolitics plays an important role, but we are neighbours: even across the Kaliningrad region. This is why we should have normal relations."
She spoke about the different approaches of Poland and Russia to the issue of Crimea.
"However, this does not mean we cannot speak on other issues, where we can find something in common," she said. "The election campaign demonstrated people in Poland want to see their president visiting not only Washington, Berlin or Brussels, but also Moscow. I realise, even disagreeing Vladimir Putin it is necessary to talk. This is the only way of solving problems."
"The situation in Europe is changing, especially with the migration crisis," she continued. "Those are horrible scenes at the borders of Serbia and Hungary. We are saying this problem is not new, but we still lack a decision. Now we are speaking about 120,000 refugees. Many services are in distress now. The reason is it is clear at least 5% refugees are terrorists."
"Terrorism is a common problem for Europe," she said. "And [fighting it] is a platform for talking to Russia.".
