Poland chose to side with Ukraine, infuriating Russia, and now Poland is going to pay for their choice.
“In a blistering social media post, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, now a top Kremlin security adviser, lashed out at Poland for its support of Ukraine, reviving and escalating decades-long tensions between Moscow and Warsaw,” reports Yahoo News.
“Poland’s surprisingly spirited defense of Ukraine would prove ‘expensive and pointless,’ Medvedev predicted, ominously adding that he was confident that Warsaw would ‘make the right choice’ and embrace Russia again,” Yahoo News reported.
“Medvedev is a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin and served a four-year placeholder presidency when Putin was facing term limits. Medvedev went on to serve as Putin’s prime minister and is now deputy chairman of the Kremlin’s security council. Putin is the chairman,” reports Yahoo News.
“In Monday’s post on the Telegram social network, Medvedev lamented that ‘the interests of Polish citizens have been sacrificed to Russophobia’ by ‘talentless politicians and their puppeteers’ in the United States,” reports Yahoo News.
“Medvedev branded Polish leaders — two of whom, Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Mateusz Morawiecki, traveled to besieged Kyiv last week with other Eastern European leaders to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — ‘political imbeciles’ who were spreading ‘vulgar’ propaganda about Russia,” according to Yahoo News.
“Inna Sovsun, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament and a leader of the liberal Holos (Voice) party, branded Medvedev’s musings ‘psychotic’ on Twitter, adding that the ‘rhetoric is so similar to what we were hearing about’ Ukraine in the months leading up to last month’s invasion, which has shattered the post-Cold War order in Eastern Europe,” Yahoo News reported.
“This is a direct assault on Poland,” Sovsun said.
