Politicians from Russia and Poland will have to reckon with the needs of the peoples of the two countries in cooperation, says the first deputy chairman of the Committee on International Affairs, a deputy from the Communist Party faction Dmitry Novikov. So the parliamentarian commented on the statement of the Polish leader Andrzej Duda that his country would like to be a friend for Russia, but Moscow began to show its “unpleasant, imperial face” and fall under the influence of Russia Poland does not want.
“In today’s world is largely globalized, everyone influences each other. And if it is positive – it allows trading, developing tourism – there is nothing wrong with it, then it’s strange to say that we shouldn’t influence us at least, ”Dmitry Novikov believes.
According to the parliamentarian, the statements made from Poland are to some extent “a tribute to the ideological cliches that have been developed today in Western politics.”
Novikov stressed that there are economic ties between the countries and anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the West lead to the fact that “many commodity producers in Poland are suffering.”
“This cannot but be the subject of a response from the leaders of the states,” the first deputy chairman of the international affairs committee noted.
