Polish president questions if Ukraine will survive

Andrzej Duda news

The West must send Kiev more weapons to stave off defeat, Andrzej Duda said in Davos.

Addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos on Wednesday, Polish President Andrzej Duda pleaded for more deliveries of heavy weapons and ammunition to Ukraine, saying the country may not continue to exist otherwise.

“I am afraid that now, maybe in a few months, maybe weeks, there will be a decisive moment of this war. And this moment is the answer to the question: if Ukraine will survive or not,” Duda told the gathering.

The weapons the US and its allies have provided to Kiev are not enough to stave off a possible pending offensive by Russian forces, he said, so “it is critically important to send additional military support now.”

Duda added that missiles and modern tanks were the most important thing, and that Ukraine needs help because it “wants to become part of the Western community” including the EU and NATO. “But above all, they want to survive,” he said.

The Polish president’s plea comes a week after Duda announced that Warsaw would send Ukraine a number of Leopard 2 tanks, only to run into objections from Germany.

Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, who now serves as the deputy chairman of the national security council, has speculated that Poland’s “tank coalition” is but a back door to the partition of Ukraine “long-awaited” in Warsaw. This was a reference to the “Eastern Borderlands” controlled by Poland between the two world wars, which include four regions of modern Ukraine – Lviv, Volyn, Ivano-Frankovsk and Tarnopol.

“But in this case one shouldn’t create a coalition, but instead draw up a collective document about the surrender of the rotten Kiev regime in order to save people; and about the future configuration of what will remain of Ukraine,” Medvedev said Tuesday on his Telegram account.

Moscow has repeatedly warned the West that sending weapons to Kiev only prolongs the fighting and increases the risk of a direct confrontation between Russia and NATO. The US and its allies insist they are not a party to the conflict, but their political leaders have repeatedly said in public that “Russia must lose” and committed to working towards that goal.

  1. Ukraine is in the same position Germany was in in 1918, they ran out of fighting men and had to agree to terms, Ukraine will have to do the same or NATO will have to supply the troops and then the sh*t will go down and we will have a New World Order of things.

  2. I think Ukraine is more in the position Germany was in 1945 where it is staring down the barrel of a mighty Russian Industrialised Military machine in full swing. Not only will Nato have to provide troops but tanks arms and munitions as well. Where is the end game in all of this ? There is talk of Nato wanting to push into Crimea – Hello ? do they want a Strategic Nuclear missle down their chimney ? All Nato is doing is pouring more petrol on the fire. All wars are Bankers wars who do you think is making all the money here ? bankers always want to prolong wars. All the time Ukraine as a State is being burnt to the ground. Ashes to ashes dust to dust because under Nato and US guidance that is all thats going to be left of Ukraine. There is going to be a New World Order of things alright but not the one Nato and the US are envisaging.
