Former Polish president suggests reducing Russia’s population
The West should either change the Russian “political system” or instigate a massive uprising, Lech Walesa believes
The world will never be safe as long as modern-day Russia exists, former Polish president Lech Walesa told French broadcaster LCI on Friday, claiming that Russia is “imperial” in nature and will always seek to “keep annexing peoples.”

Even if Western nations would help Ukraine to win its ongoing conflict with Moscow, they would still fail to make the world a safer place, Walesa argued, adding the international community would potentially see another conflict involving Russia “in five years.” “In ten years, we will see another Putin arise,” he added, referring to Russian president Vladimir Putin, who is increasingly portrayed as an autocratic strongman by Western officials and the media.

To avoid such a development, the West “must force [a] change of political system” in Russia, the former Polish president believes. If it proves to be impossible, “organizing an uprising” would be another option, he said.
According to Walesa, Russia still has “60 peoples, who have been annexed like Ukrainians [are being annexed] today.” It would be “necessary to stir those peoples … to action” to bring Russia’s population “back to less than 50 million,” the former president said, pointing to a potential forceful disintegration of the modern-day Russia. According to the latest population census held in 2021, Russia’s population currently amounts to around 147 million people, the state statistical agency, Rosstat, said in April.

NATO should give ultimatum to Russia – Polish general
The bloc should be prepared to introduce ‘anti-missile protection’ over Ukraine to defend its borders and Western weapons supplies, Stanislaw Koziej said
The former head of the Polish National Security Bureau, General Stanislaw Koziej, has called on NATO to deliver an ultimatum to Russia: either Moscow stops missile strikes in the western parts of Ukraine near NATO borders or the alliance imposes “anti-missile protection” over Ukraine.

In an interview with the Polish web portal Onet last week, Koziej, who was Poland’s national security chief between 2010 and 2015, said that NATO should protect the military equipment that Western countries are sending to Ukraine.

At the moment, the general said, Russian forces are trying to destroy the weapons by long-range missiles launched from the Black Sea, or with the help of strategic aviation.

This is “not acceptable,” Koziej claims. According to him, the fact that Russia is apparently using dual-purpose missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads gives NATO every reason to take steps to mitigate the risks.

“We have all arguments to take preventative measures and to inform Russia that if it does not stop attacking our border with long-range missiles, then from some day we will introduce anti-missile protection over Western Ukraine,” Koziej said.

Russia has long called on the West to stop “pumping up” Ukraine with weapons, warning that it would only prolong the conflict and lead to further problems. Moscow also made it clear that it would consider any foreign military equipment on Ukrainian territory a legitimate target.

In Koziej’s opinion, until now Russia has successfully “blackmailed” the West by threatening the potential use of nuclear weapons. Therefore, he argued, NATO should be prepared to shoot down Russian missiles “at an appropriate distance” from its border.

“In my opinion, this situation must be finally reversed or at least balanced. It cannot be that in the confrontation of two sides, only one scares, puts up barriers, conditions and red lines,” the former head of the National Security Bureau said.

On June 17, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia was not threatening anyone with nuclear weapons but that “everyone should know what we have and what we will use if necessary to protect our sovereignty.”

Commenting on the current situation in Ukraine from the military perspective, Koziej said that “nothing is decided yet.” While Russia is “slowly pushing forward,” the Western support remains a hope for Ukraine.

“Ukrainians have more and more modern military equipment from the West, and the Russians have the opposite, because they must also reach for obsolete, post-Soviet equipment,” he claimed.

Koziej hasn’t ruled out that Ukraine might suffer territorial losses.

“But in the sense of state unity, the strength of the Ukrainian nation, Ukraine’s position in the world or its chances of joining the West, Ukraine has won this conflict…,” he said.

Meanwhile, Russia, according to the general, “is losing the war” because its strategic possibilities will decrease, its position on the international stage will deteriorate and Russians’ standard of living “will drop significantly.”

Since the launch of Russia’s special military operation, Kiev has been asking NATO and Western countries to impose a no-fly zone over or provide Ukraine with the means to do so itself, such as anti-air defense systems and warplanes. These requests, however, remain unfulfilled as the West claims that such a move would put it in direct confrontation with Russia.

Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.

The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
6月17日、ロシアのプーチン大統領は、ロシアは核兵器で誰かを脅しているわけではないが、"我々の主権を守るために、我々が何を持ち、必要ならば何を使うのか、誰もが知るべきだ "と述べた。
ウクライナの現状を軍事的な観点からコメントすると、コジェイ氏は、"まだ何も決まっていない "と言った。ロシアが "ゆっくりと前進している "一方で、欧米の支援はウクライナにとって希望であることに変わりはない。
"ウクライナ人は西側からどんどん近代的な軍備を手に入れ、ロシア人は逆に旧式のソ連後の装備にも手を伸ばさなければならないからだ "と主張した。

Lukashenko warns Poland over western Ukraine
Belarus will have to react if Poland tries to “encircle” it, the president said
Belarus believes that Poland is considering taking over the western part of Ukraine, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday. He warned Warsaw against such a move, warning his country would have to intervene if it did.

“We cannot allow the Poles to encircle us,” he said. “As I once said, the Ukrainians and the Russians will ask us to preserve [Ukraine’s] integrity. So that [Poles] don’t take a bite out of it.”

Belarus facilitated Russia’s military campaign against Ukraine by allowing its troops to use its territory, but declined to deploy its own troops to the battlefield. Speaking during a visit to a factory, Lukashenko claimed that Western powers, Poland in particular, would like to drag his nation into the conflict. Warsaw acts boldly because it is being armed and financed by the US, he said.


West has right to give Ukraine nukes – EU lawmaker
Radoslaw Sikorski urged countries to “dissuade” Russia from using nuclear weapons against Ukraine

The West could provide Ukraine with nuclear weapons to help defend itself against Russia, Radoslaw Sikorski, a member of the European Parliament and former Polish foreign minister, said.

“The West has the right to give Ukraine nuclear warheads so that it could protect its independence,” Sikorski told Ukraine’s Espreso TV on Saturday.

Sikorski, who served as Poland’s foreign minister between 2007 and 2014, argued that Russia violated the Budapest Memorandum.

Under the 1994 document signed by Ukraine, Russia, Britain, and the US, Kiev agreed to surrender its Soviet-era nuclear arsenal. The signatories promised to “respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.”

On Sunday, Sikorski reiterated his position, accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of threatening Ukraine with nuclear weapons and arguing that the West must “dissuade” him.

Last month, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexey Zaytsev denied that Moscow was planning to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. He said that claims to the contrary are “deliberate lies.”

Poland does not belong in EU – ex-president
Germany and France should establish a new bloc without Warsaw and Budapest, Lech Walesa said
Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Lech Walesa has suggested that the European Union should dissolve itself to create a new bloc without Poland and Hungary.

In an interview with the Polish portal Interia about the European Commission finally approving the National Reconstruction Plan for his country, Walesa, who was president between 1990 and 1995, said that sending billions of euros in investments to Warsaw would be a “failure” for the EU. In his opinion, these funds will be stolen “anyway” and thus “without the rule of law, it makes no sense to waste billions of euros.”

“The Union, instead of compromising with Poland, should dissolve itself and, moments later, create a new bloc based on Germany and France, but without Poland and Hungary,” he said.

If Poland still wanted to join the new union, Walesa argued, they would have to “accept obligations.”

The founder and longtime leader of the Solidarity Trade Union, known for his highly critical stance towards the current Polish leadership, said that his country is “losing billions due to a few frivolous politicians.”
