“The entire territory of the Russian Federation, all regions, including the Kaliningrad region, are under constant attention from the country’s leadership and are provided with a sufficient amount of medicines, social services and food. I am convinced that residents of the Kaliningrad Region will be able to do without Polish goods for some time and will treat the regime of temporary closure of borders with understanding. ” This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak, commenting on an article in a Polish newspaper, which refers to an allegedly isolated region.
“The ideas that have arisen among Polish neighbors about the possibility of“ joining ”the Kaliningrad region to Poland are puzzling and want to recall facts from the past. There have already been times in the history of relations between Russia and Poland when Polish leaders tried to “annex” part of the Russian lands to themselves. Everyone perfectly remembers how ingloriously it ended for Polish and other warriors.
In addition, it should be noted that the reference in this context to the historical reunification of Crimea with Russia in 2014 is inappropriate and even provocative, ”the politician noted.
“Our western neighbors should be more careful in ensuring the epidemiological safety of our citizens, strengthening measures to counteract the spread of coronavirus, and not fantasizing on dangerous topics of a possible violation of the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation,” said Zheleznyak.
