Dmitry Medvedev, who was the Russian President between 2008 and 2012, now serves as the Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council. In recent years, he has continued to share his views on the war between Russia and Ukraine. Medvedev, Putin’s close and ally, has clearly adopted anti-Western positions every time.
This time, it was Poland’s turn to pay the price in an opinion piece published by Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
“We will regard Poland as a historical enemy,” he wrote, while predicting the country’s demise. “History is always merciless in the face of Polish arrogance: whatever its ambitions or restoration plans, their failure will lead to the death of the entire Polish state.”
Third World War
In this article, Medvedev also labels the threat of World War III, which, according to him, will be fueled by Poland’s support for Ukraine. “Their military deployment and presence in Ukraine would provoke direct conflict between Warsaw, Belarus and Russia,” he writes. “These actions, supported by NATO, could have serious consequences for the whole world. Poland would become the ‘Hyena of Europe’ after starting World War III.
In the end, the former Russian president once again highlighted Poland’s “belligerent ambitions”, accusing it of wanting to “dominate the entire region by controlling the states located between Warsaw and Moscow”.
