– PiS led us towards authoritarianism, on the path away from the European Union. Before the last parliamentary elections, we were one step away from the path leading east, said Minister of Foreign Affairs Radosław Sikorski in “Kropka nad i”. According to him, the president of Law and Justice, Jarosław Kaczyński, “is Eastern in terms of civilization.”

The head of Polish diplomacy Radosław Sikorski was asked in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 about the Civic Platform's spot published on social media with the caption “Russia's greatest success in Poland is PiS.” It shows faces in frames Vladimir Putin, Jarosław Kaczyński, later Antoni Macierewicz and other prominent Law and Justice politicians also appear in the frames. The spot also shows, among others: human skulls.

– As I understand it, the spot has a title that is a quote from General (Piotr – ed.) Pytel, former head of counterintelligence, who warned that “Russia is already here,” Sikorski replied. – For example, in the person of Mr. (Tomasz) Szmydt, it turned out to be true – he added.

– I believe that Jarosław Kaczyński is indeed Eastern in terms of civilization – said the minister. In his opinion, when the PiS president makes “civilizational references”, “there are no classics of Western conservatism or liberalism, there are always Russian or Soviet references.” – Besides, he himself said that in Vienna he felt alien to civilization – he added.

– I believe that PiS was leading us towards authoritarianism, on the path away from the European Union. Before the last ones elections parliamentary elections, we were one step away from the path leading east, Sikorski said.

Sikorski: their activities may lead to Poland becoming an isolated country outside the European UnionTVN24

He was also asked whether he agreed with the words said by the Prime Minister Donald Tusk in the Sejm and reminded in the spot that United Right politicians are “paid traitors, Russian henchmen.”

– Their activities may lead to Poland becoming an isolated country, outside the European Union and exposed to Putin's attack – replied Sikorski. He added: “We are in a very serious situation, so we need to sound the alarm.”

He also said that the former judge Tomasz Szmydt, who had fled to… Belarus and applied for asylum there, was “promoted by the previous ruling party” and “turned out to be a lackey of at least Belarus, and perhaps Russia.” – So unfortunately the facts are brutal – he added.

Sikorski about the announced commission. “It does not serve to eliminate people from politics”

Radosław Sikorski also commented on the announcement of the establishment of a commission to investigate Russian and Belarusian influence in Poland. He argued that there are “fundamental differences” between this project and the commission created by PiS.

– This committee will not make any administrative decisions. It is not intended to eliminate people from politics in an extralegal way. This commission is only to look at the findings of investigative journalists and various unverified cases in the work of counterintelligence: military and civilian, in order for us to find these Szmydts or others, I will not mention the names, who may have been recruited by the eastern services.

– It (the commission – ed.) may also, as an advisory body to the Minister of Justice, propose various solutions. So there is a fundamental difference with the mechanism of eliminating rivals that PiS wanted to introduce, he noted.

“Bodnar confirmed that the investigation into Macierewicz's case is already ongoing”

Sikorski was also asked about his words about a possible arrest PiS MP Antoni Macierewicz. On Tuesday, in Program III of Polish Radio, an anonymous Internet user asked a question “when Antoni Macierewicz will be arrested.” The minister found it justified. – For the way in which the WSI was liquidated, for the way in which this scandalous commission (the Smolensk subcommittee – ed.) was run, which proved nothing. Today I will be meeting the Prosecutor General at the Council of Ministers and I will ask him this very valid question, said Sikorski. – Macierewicz is for me the seventh wonder of the world. If one of us did 1/10 of what Macierewicz did to the detriment of the Polish state, we would be sitting, but he is not, said the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In “Kropka nad i” Sikorski said: – I actually talked to the prosecutor general and answered the reader who asked this question on social media. Namely, Minister (Adam – ed.) Bodnar confirmed that the investigation into Macierewicz's case is already underway.
