Russia takes aim at "aggressive" nation.

Trending Now

In a recent statement, Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson for Russian President Vladimir Putin, has criticized Poland, describing it as an "aggressive" country.

This comes amid heightened tensions between Russia and Poland, particularly due to Poland's support for Ukraine in the ongoing conflict.

Peskov also indicated that Poland poses a problem for Russia's ally, Belarus.

Peskov's comments also touched upon the relationship between Poland and Ukraine, which has been strained due to disputes over corn exports.

He predicts that tensions between the two nations will escalate, especially after Poland recently declined to send more weapons to Ukraine.

The tensions escalated further in July when members of Russia's Wagner group moved to Belarus, Poland's neighboring country.

In response, Poland deployed thousands of troops to the Belarusian border.

Peskov stated that Poland is a problem for Belarus, Russia's ally, thereby implicating that the tensions could have broader geopolitical implications.
