Russia trying to stir up controversy between Ukraine, Poland - Polish envoy

Russia trying to stir up controversy between Ukraine, Poland - Polish envoyThe Russian government would like to organise a hybrid front between the Ukrainian and Polish people because it is impossible to arrange a pro-Russian lobby, particularly in Poland, Polish Ambassador to Ukraine Yan Pieklo has said.

"I think Russia would like to do the same thing with the Poles and Ukrainians it had done in Donbas. I do not think it's a war, just a hybrid front between Poles and Ukrainians to put us at odds with each other," the ambassador said on the 5 TV Channel on Thursday.

In his view, the reasons for this intention of the Kremlin lie in the impossibility of organising a Russian lobby in Poland. "It is simply impossible to organise a pro-Russian lobby in Poland and Ukraine. Since it is impossible to organise such a lobby, then it is necessary to put Poles against Ukrainians," the diplomat said.

He also said that history should become the tool in this case. "There is a Russian network of spies that wants to play with these (historical) matters. But unfortunately, there is a nationalistic potential among Polish and Ukrainian societies," the ambassador said.

Pieklo also said that Poland and Ukraine should look for common heroes, make joint films and programs.
