Poland Foreign Minister Says Putin Should be Worried About NATO War

According to Poland’s foreign minister Radek Sikorski, who spoke Thursday, war with NATO would lead to Russia’s loss. Putin should be afraid, he said.

As the conflict in Ukraine drags on, Western allies express concern that Russia may shift its focus to NATO nations after Ukraine. Putin will choose a NATO country to attack if Moscow prevails in its fight with Kyiv, according to former Vice President Mike Pence.

Ukraine will receive $61 billion to continue fighting thanks to a much-needed foreign assistance package that the U.S. Congress has approved. According to Sikorski, Russian officials should take responsibility for the harm they’ve caused, and Polish businesses should pitch in to help restore the Ukrainian economy.

The nation’s foreign policy was the main topic of Sikorski’s speech, in which he compared Russia’s economy and military to those of its Western friends.

He said that despite concerns regarding Ukraine’s membership, Poland is nevertheless determined to assist the country in joining the European Union. Commenting on the decision to accept Poland in 2004, Sikorski said that in 2004, similar fears were raised.

As he criticized the previous administration for its wrong decisions that caused a decline in credibility and status, the foreign minister emphasized Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s plans for the future. Given the ongoing conflict, his remarks seem to underscore the nation’s aim to restore itself as a dependable ally.

Top military officials and Western allies are growing more concerned about a possible nuclear arms race as a result of Putin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Putin has been subtly threatening the West with nuclear weapons and has hidden them in Belarus, which borders NATO countries Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia.

After Tusk’s victory in last October’s election, which ousted Poland’s nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party after eight years in office, Sikorski resumed his role as foreign minister. The center-right government of President Lech Tusk has been working to reverse years of PiS policies, reestablish democratic principles, and mend ties with Brussels ever since.

According to Tusk’s new warning, Europe is still in its “pre-war era” and has a “long way to go” before it can confront the danger ahead. In addition, President Andrzej Duda of Poland has said that should NATO choose to fortify its eastern border, Poland is “ready” to host nuclear weapons in its country.
