SVPressa.ru – According to the scientific director of the Institute of Regional Problems Dmitry Zhuravlev, Poland is already ready to cross a certain line, but is afraid and wants to enlist the support of NATO
Warsaw’s decision to expel 45 Russian diplomats was a definite demonstration.
As the scientific director of the Institute of Regional Problems Dmitry Zhuravlev said in an interview with the 360 TV channel, Poland is already ready to cross a certain line, but is afraid and wants to enlist the support of NATO.
At the same time, Zhuravlev does not consider the mass expulsion of our diplomats to be an ordinary diplomatic step.
“It is clear that this is a certain demonstration,” he explained. – But the demonstration is already large-scale, massive. And it is connected precisely with the fact that Poland really wants to reach the line but is very afraid. She would cross this line with joy if she received a NATO mandate to do so.”
According to the expert, Poland is sure that with the support of the alliance it will not be necessary to fight. Ukraine had a similar position, which simply hoped to “bring tanks to Donetsk and Lugansk.”
“The Poles live in approximately the same confidence. Therefore, they really want to get involved in this story. But get involved so that the US and NATO guarantee their security. Now at the head of Poland are people in whom the imperial past still hurts. These are people who see Poland as the Commonwealth, which will include Belarus, and Ukraine, and Moldova, and Lithuania, and maybe even a piece of Latvia, ”said Zhuravlev.
At the same time, he expressed confidence that Warsaw really hopes to “take Ukraine as part of itself” and cancel the decision of the Pereyaslav Rada, which made the decision to join Ukraine to Russia.
The political scientist believes that everything else is secondary for Poland, including whether Ukrainians survive or not, it does not matter to them.”
“Only one thing stops them: NATO does not give them a mandate, and without an alliance mandate, they understand that they will not win against Russia. But I don’t want to lose – I want to win, and bloodlessly,” summed up the scientific director of the Institute of Regional Problems.
Earlier, Alexander Perendzhiev, a military-political scientist, associate professor of the Department of Political Science and Sociology at the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, said that Poland’s intention to bring NATO peacekeepers into Ukraine can be considered soil probing.
In his opinion, Warsaw would like to check whether it can “grab some pieces from Ukraine.”
As the specialist explained, in the words of Poland “it seems to support Ukraine and official Kyiv”, but in reality, it simply wants to take advantage of the situation and establish its control over some territories.
