Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban assessed that Ukraine is no longer a sovereign state because it has neither money nor weapons. – I would expect Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki to radically distance himself from such words – commented the MP of the Left, Krzysztof Śmiszek, drawing attention to the close relations between the ruling camps in Poland and Hungary. Janusz Kowalski from Sovereign Poland assessed that the words of the Hungarian leader about Russia “are absolutely unacceptable”.

On Monday, Orban, in an interview with the German newspapers “Welt” and “Bild” and the Politico portal, said that he did not believe Vladimir Putin for a war criminal, Ukraine it is no longer a sovereign state because it has neither money nor weapons. “Kiev can fight Moscow only because it enjoys the support of the West,” said the Hungarian prime minister.

– It is a shame for any civilized leader of a country in the European Union not only to show up with Orban, but to stand next to Orban. Morawiecki, who is still hand in hand, shows up everywhere with Orban, with (Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo) Salvini, with Mrs. Marine) LePenwith the Spanish VOX party, shows which side he is on – commented MP of the Left, Krzysztof Śmiszek.

– I would expect Prime Minister Morawiecki to radically distance himself from such words, because if he does not, it means that, on the one hand, he gives the impression that we are Ukraine’s advocate and friend, and on the other hand, he does business, makes political deals with Orbán who turns out to be Putin’s friend,” he added.

Klimczak: These are scandalous words

Dariusz Klimczak from the Polish People’s Party assessed that “today the Polish foreign minister should officially or unofficially ask the Hungarian side whether Viktor Orbán he said seriously that Putin and Russia are not criminals.

– These are scandalous words and if the Hungarian side maintains the position of Viktor Orban, I believe that this qualifies as breaking off certain relations. It is certainly not allowed today to say that Hungary is the first partner Poland in the European Union he declared.

Kowalski: Absolutely unacceptable

Janusz Kowalski, MP for Sovereign Poland, admitted that Orban “doesn’t like it very much”. “Viktor Orban is the prime minister of a large country in the European Union, our partner within the European Union, and his statements about Ukraine, his statements about Russia are absolutely unacceptable,” he said.

When asked whether the Polish side should publicly condemn Orban, Kowalski replied that “I first of all condemn the Germans who today block, among other things, another package of sanctions against Russia.”

– For example, we want to seize the assets, sell the assets of all these oligarchs. This is the basic postulate of the Polish government – he said when asked what restrictions Berlin was blocking.
