Poland is greatly concerned about a possible attack from Russia, reports Yuriy Shcherbak, Ukraine’s former ambassador to the US, after a recent trip to the country. Shcherbak took part in an international conference dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the revival of the Solidarity movement in Poland and shared his experiences with Espreso.TV on March 18.
“There is a great concern there,” he said. “They are thinking primarily about themselves now. No wonder [American Vice-President Joe] Biden traveled to Poland. No wonder they are now demanding American presence in Poland. They think that Lithuania may be next.”
Shcherbak also spoke of one “terrible thing” that happened after his presentation. A vote was held on the question “Do you believe NATO will help Poland in the event of military aggression? And 80% of the participants said ‘No,’ and they are members of NATO,” he concluded.
