Russia is a sponsor of various anti-Polish acts in Ukraine and coordinates an aggressive information campaign on the Internet against Ukraine and other Western countries. This in an interview with Ukrinform told the member of the European Parliament, deputy chairman of the delegation of parliamentary cooperation with Ukraine, Michal Boni.
"Russians are also actively influencing Polish-Ukrainian relations both physically and in cyberspace. I have no illusions that Russian money stands behind the various anti-Polish acts in Ukraine are Russian," Boni said.
He noted that it is not even a question of, for example, the fact of the recent burning of the Polish school in Mostysky in the Lviv region, but the fact that later this event was covered by tweets or posts on Facebook, and how it was interpreted. Boni stressed: if such an event happened 20-30 years ago, then this would be mentioned briefly on the tenth page of the newspaper - and there would not be any extreme publicity.
"Now the Internet serves as a tool that bring lowlights events to the rank of super important to inflate the various emotions in society. And that's why I frankly say that Russians are behind this, because they want the Ukrainian-Polish relations to be bad so that Ukraine can not transform itself, "the European Parliament deputy stressed.
