The burning of Ukrainian flag, which occurred in Warsaw on November 11 was nothing but a provocation by a pro-Russian activist. Jan Peklo, the ambassador of Poland to Ukraine, said this in his interview with Interfax agency.
‘It was clearly a provocation launched by the pro-Russian environment in Poland. And I guess there will be more of them. Russia is trying to alienate us, to drive a wedge between Poles and Ukrainians,’ he said.
The ambassador added that Russia has been doing everything to destabilize Ukraine and not just Ukraine; however, the EU and Poland are aware of Russia’s actions in this area. ‘Poles know what Russia and its methods are all about. But the hybrid war remains a threat,’ Peklo stressed.
The diplomat also said Poland would continue to support keeping the sanctions against Russia, until all provisions of the Minsk agreements are complied with.
