In a firm rebuttal, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has addressed the misleading historical narratives shared by Vladimir Putin during his recent appearance on Tucker Carlson's platform on Feb. 9.
The Ministry outlined ten key points directly challenging the inaccuracies and fabrications made by the Russian leader.
Throughout the two-hour dialogue, Putin inaccurately depicted Ukraine and its people, casting Russia as the victim in the ongoing conflict.
One of Putin’s assertions, suggesting that Poland had "collaborated" with Nazi Germany and had "pushed" Hitler to initiate the 1939 attack, was specifically countered.
Warsaw clarified that Polish diplomatic efforts were aimed at maintaining normal relations with Germany, firmly rejecting Hitler’s demands.
Furthermore, the Ministry highlighted that the real catalyst for the assault on Poland was the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, a notorious agreement between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski directly addressed Putin’s erroneous statements regarding the origins of Ukraine and Ukrainian national identity, dismissing them as “paranoid justifications” for the war on Ukraine.
