Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, announced the beginning of the seizure of Ukrainian territories by Poland.
At a meeting on national security in the Volga region on Tuesday, Patrushev said, quotes “Interfax”:
“The so-called Western partners of the Kyiv regime are also not opposed to taking advantage of the current situation for their own selfish interests and have special plans for Ukrainian lands. (…) Apparently, Poland is already moving to actions to seize Western Ukrainian territories. A vivid confirmation of this was the visit to Kyiv of the Polish President Duda, as well as his statements that the Polish-Ukrainian border will soon cease to exist.
Patrushev also claims that “already a number of states are actively working to dismember it (Ukraine).” To back up his claim, Patrushev says that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky intends to grant Poles a special status and the opportunity to hold senior government positions:
“In this case, the sovereignty of Ukraine does not concern either the head of state, or even less the United States and its allies, who are ready to sacrifice the interests of the Ukrainian people to achieve their geopolitical goals (…) Their actions lead to a real collapse of the country.”
During the visit of Polish President Andrzej Duda to Kyiv, reminds “UP”, Vladimir Zelensky announced his intention to simplify the border crossing between Ukraine and Poland. In May, Duda proposed a new friendship agreement between Poland and Ukraine, and also said that the border between the two countries should unite, not divide.
