March 17 – Europe does not have a clear strong direction regarding the threat from the side of Russia, which has to be answered with force. This was stated by Poland's ex-president, Lech Walensa in an interview for TVN24. "If Russia will risk to attack Poland and other countries, then it will collapse. I see that which will happen with Russia. Of course, a million, 10 million people will die, and it would be better if that did not happen," Walensa stared in creating the scenario of a possible future war.
