Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that today's support for Ukraine is an investment in the security of the whole of Europe, so whoever does not do it now has either betrayed European values or is drugged by Russia. He said this at the international conference on the restoration of Ukraine, which is taking place today in Berlin, PAP reports.
The Prime Minister of Poland emphasized that Russian President Vladimir Putin will not be able to conquer Europe militarily if he does not first defeat it economically, therefore supporting Ukraine is "the best guarantee of security and peace for decades to come."
"Anyone who does not support Ukraine today has either betrayed the values of our civilization, or is in a state of intoxication by Russia. Or both," Morawiecki said.
In his opinion, victory in the fight against Russia is approaching not only thanks to the military successes of Ukraine and the exhaustion of Russia by sanctions, but also because a large part of the Western world has shown determination.
"In order to win the war with Russia, we need to build a completely new security architecture in economic and political terms. The economic recovery of Ukraine is an extremely important condition for the security of Europe," he said.
Morawiecki emphasized that the aggressor should pay for this restoration - Russia should pay reparations, Russian assets should be confiscated and used for the restoration of Ukraine.
Commenting on Europe's dependence on Russian raw materials, Morawiecki compared the Russian Federation to a drug dealer who gives the first dose for free, knowing that the one who "sucked up" will return and pay handsomely for such doses. Against this background, the Prime Minister of Poland noted that it is not enough to talk about the restoration of Ukraine - Europe needs reformatting, including energy policy.
