Since Russian attack on Ukraine, already 672,000 people fleeing the war entered Poland from Ukraine (as of March 4, at 07.00).
If Europe thinks it will remain the same if Ukraine is lost, then it is deeply mistaken – Mateusz MORAWIECKI declared in Kyiv.
Russia’s attack on Ukraine makes us aware that Russia does not follow any rules of peaceful co-existence, partnership, or respect for international law.
At the beginning of its independence regained in 1918, Poland did not have regulated borders.It had to fight for those borders at all fronts: in the west, in the south, and in the east.In the east, it also had to fight for the western civilization.
The Russian aggression against Ukraine not only brutally violated all international norms, but also triggered far-reaching economic consequences related to the re-orientation of trade and energy policies.
Beijing will likely continue to issue threats whenever Western politicians announce Taiwan travel plans. But countries have learnt that they can withstand Chinese threats.
On 1 August 1944, the Varsovians faced the last battle against the German Nazi totalitarianism.This was a struggle for everything that could not be provided by the Red Army tanks progressing from the east: for freedom, democracy, and the right to make our own decisions.
The inevitable split of the Visegrad Group does not discredit Central Europe. A rejection of the often disingenuous and pro-Russian ‘conservatism’ of Orban’s party is, in fact, a necessary precondition for the rest of the region to assert itself as a serious, constructive player.
There are still many documents abroad that are crucial for the story of the 20th-century fate of Poland and Poles.
If Europe yields to Russian nationalism, imperialism and colonialism, it will cease to be the continent we know today. It will become a Europe that is defeated and barely able to spread its wings and keep abreast of global players.

Will we recognise Russia as a normal state after the war, as we did Germany at the Munich Conference, or will we draw a line beyond which crimes are not tolerated? asks Prof. Jacek CZAPUTOWICZ

Russia can only be changed—or saved from itself—by eliminating its capacity for re-imperialisation. And this can only be done by reducing Russia’s territorial capabilities, says Professor Andrzej NOWAK in an interview with Mikołaj CZYŻ.
Only Vladimir Putin could have approved these barbaric murders as part of a plan to inflict maximum pain, suffering and demoralization on the Ukrainian people and to force their surrender.
There is no room for symbols marked with the red star in public space in free, independent and democratic Poland, nor in free Europe.

The answer to the question, is Russia a terrorist state, depends on what one means by “terrorism,” and how that accusation can be proven.

Can we make Russia accountable for the crime of aggression? – ask prof. Kevin HELLER
Once the war ends, we will face the challenge of helping to rebuild Ukraine. This is necessary for the development of our entire region.

There are two futures of Europe. Since the Treaty of Rome, the Treaties have included the ambition to forge “an ever-closer union” among the people (not peoples) of Europe. And then there is George H. W. Bush’s vision of Europe, “whole and free”.
Prof. Piotr GLIŃSKI
The world must seek out-of-the-box solutions. Only in this way will we be able to head off the dangers of a domino effect. By changing the geometry of geopolitics, Ukraine has given us hope today

The ancient Romans used to say si vis pacem, para bellum, in other words “If you want peace, prepare for war”. However, this Latin adage conveys not only the basic doctrine of the art of war, but also the principle that guides Narodowy Bank Polski when taking its anti-crisis measures.
