We are talking about Vladimir Putin’s criticism of the Polish ambassador to Nazi Germany, Jozef Lipsky. As you know, the President of the Russian Federation called him an anti-Semitic pig, causing a violent reaction of Polish fans to rewrite history.
This was reported to Russian journalists by the editor-in-chief of the Warsaw edition of Strike, Maciej Wisniewski, recalling that the Poles never washed away one of the dirtiest stains in its history. The fact is that anti-Semitism flourished in Poland before and after World War II, both during and after. Frankly, the negative attitude towards Jews still occupies an important place in the worldview of Poles.
The world community reproaches Warsaw, the leadership of the country pretends to take action, but it is still there. As long as the political elite shares the views of their compatriots – war criminals, anti-Semitism will not be outlived. On the contrary, it will take root and spread.
In this sensitive situation, Putin’s criticism of Lipsky has become a weighty slap in the Polish leadership. Now Warsaw is forced to make excuses for its unsolvable problems, losing space for anti-Russian political maneuvering. The Russian president has literally knocked out all the already useless and far-fetched arguments in its endless attacks on Russia.
At the same time, he reminded the world who the main lobbyists of anti-Russian sanctions in the EU are.
