Ex-President of Poland Alexander Kwasniewski warned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky against the political persecution of his predecessor Petro Poroshenko. Kwasniewski said this in an interview with the BBC.

"If he (Zelensky, - ed.) does what he wants to do, because it is revenge or because his voters like it, it will be bad not only for Poroshenko, it will be bad first of all for Zelensky. Because it will damage his image of a young man, who looks into the future, who wants to create a modern democratic country," Kwasniewski said.

The ex-president of Poland added that if such a political performance happens, then, of course, the world will not be silent.
