The rule of Law and Justice for the last six years has led to the fact that Poland is in the corner of the European Union and nobody cares about us – stated MEP Robert Biedroń in “Facts after Facts”, who commented on the Polish strategy to deal with the crisis at the border caused by by the Belarusian regime. – Today it is not the government that is seeking the de-escalation of this conflict, but the prime ministers, chancellor, presidents, presidents of other countries or other institutions – said Biedroń.
The guest of the Sunday issue of “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 was the co-chairman of Nowa Lewica, MEP Robert Biedroń. He was asked about the crisis at the Polish-Belarusian border and about the actions of the Polish government towards it. – Law and Justice promised us that we would get up from our knees, and unfortunately we are on the boards, and this can be seen in this crisis as well – he commented.
He recalled here that with the American president on this matter The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, intervened, a Angela Merkel spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin. – There is no president in all these talks, no foreign minister, no prime minister. This is, unfortunately, a very sad example of the failure of Polish diplomacy, he assessed.
– We have certainly not had a situation since 1989 in which Polish diplomacy is completely paralyzed and handed over to foreign countries. Because today it is not the Polish government that is seeking matters regarding the de-escalation of this conflict, but the prime ministers, chancellor, presidents, presidents of other countries or other institutions – he said. “This is a real failure of Polish diplomacy,” he repeated.
Biedroń noted that soldiers and the Border Guard are needed at the border, because “there is a real escalation of the conflict there”. – It’s like playing with matches. It is enough, on one hand or the other, a provocation, an unreasonable move and we will have a really serious tragedy – he assessed.
He also argued that, in his opinion, such conflicts are not solved “with the help of soldiers”, but “with the help of quiet diplomacy, good relations with partners”. – And the rule of Law and Justice for the last six years, unfortunately, spoiled everything. They have led to the fact that Poland, and this is a sad finding, is in the corner of the European Union and nobody cares about us – he noted.
