“A pitiful Kremlin bore.” Poland says Putin’s accusations are false

Statements by Russian President Vladimir Putin about Poland’s preparations to take over Western Ukraine have nothing to do with reality, said Stanisław Żarin, Secretary of State at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister.

“The pathetic Kremlin bore repeats lies about Poland again and tries to falsify the truth about the war with Ukraine” he wrote is on Twitter.

According to Zharin, Putin is “again using historical revisionism to spread false accusations against the republic.” In particular, the Russian president said that Warsaw allegedly “dreams of Belarusian lands” and promised to respond to the aggression against Belarus with all available means.

Zharin stressed that after the Wagner rebellion led by Yevgeny Prigozhin, the image of Putin “has weakened a lot”, and now the Russian president looks “passive, not strong and tough, as propaganda tried to portray him.”

“For many Russians, especially the military, Putin has become a coward,” Zharin said, noting that “the weaker the image of Putin, the more he inspires distrust among Russians, especially among the security forces, the harder the propaganda attacks with his participation will be.”

The official pointed out that the president of the Russian Federation had already started resorting to threats, saying that “the western lands of Poland are Stalin’s gift” and the republic should be grateful to the USSR for “restoring independence”, and if Warsaw “forgets about it”, Russia will “remind you”.

Putin has previously used allegations of “territorial gifts” from the Soviet authorities to justify the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the outbreak of war with Ukraine in February 2022.

According to Zharin, who is also the government commissioner for information security, the Polish authorities understand that “the information war waged by Russia is dangerous and should not be underestimated”, but “the activities of the Kremlin industry of lies are often also a way to hide their own weaknesses.”

Earlier, Putin ordered the head of the Security Service, Sergei Naryshkin, to monitor Poland’s plans towards Ukraine. According to the Russian president, Warsaw is trying to create a coalition “under the umbrella of NATO” in order to “tear off a bigger piece”, including annexing Zakarpattia. Naryshkin himself has already accused Poland four times “deceitful intentions” in relation to Ukraine.

Russia itself, having invaded a neighboring country, annexed four more of its regions: the Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhia and Kherson regions. Currently, about 20% of Ukraine’s territory is under occupation.
