Russia Threatens to Eliminate Poland over Proposed Deployment of Western Nuclear Forces to Ukraine

International Military - Polish officials are proposing to Western countries to deploy nuclear weapons to Ukraine amid its war with Russia. Moscow called it a crazy idea and threatened to wipe out Warsaw. "The idea of ​​supplying nuclear weapons to Ukraine in the midst of a conflict is tantamount to provoking a nuclear conflict in the center of Europe and is absolutely insane," Russian State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said on Sunday.

Moscow's reaction was in response to a statement by a member of Parliament who is also a former Polish foreign minister, Radoslaw Sikorski. He said that the West had the right to do so.

"With such a member of Parliament, Europe will have much more serious problems than they face today refugees, record inflation, energy crisis," Volodin said. "Sikorski sparked a nuclear conflict in the center of Europe. He does not think about the future of either Ukraine or Poland. If his proposal materializes, these countries will disappear, along with the rest of Europe," he said, as quoted by Pravda, Monday (13/6/2022). .

Volodin also questioned the veteran Polish diplomat's mental health, suggesting that the diplomat be examined by a psychiatrist, give up his Member of Parliament mandate, and stay home under surveillance from now on. "Precisely because people like Sikorski, not only are needed to liberate Ukraine from Nazi ideology, but also demilitarize, ensuring the country's non-nuclear status," the Russian official said.

Sikorski, who headed Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs between 2007 and 2014, floated the idea in an interview with Ukraine's Espresso TV on Saturday. The diplomat accused Russia of violating the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, a framework agreement signed by Ukraine, Russia, Britain and the United States, under which Kiev gave up the nuclear arsenal it inherited after the collapse of the Soviet Union in exchange for security guarantees and economic benefits. "The West has the right to give Ukraine nuclear warheads so it can protect its independence," Sikorski claimed.

The politician's remarks echo those made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shortly before the conflict broke out on February 24. Speaking at a security conference in Munich, Germany, Zelensky suggested that Ukraine give up its non-nuclear status, because the 1994 treaty "doesn't work".

“Ukraine receives security guarantees in exchange for the disposal of the world's third largest nuclear potential. We don't have such weapons.

We also have no guarantees," Zelensky said at the time. Kiev has repeatedly accused Moscow of violating the Budapest Memorandum after Crimea voted to join Russia in the wake of the coup in Kiev in 2014. However, Moscow has consistently rejected the claims, insisting that the 1994 document did not oblige Russia to force part of the Ukrainian people to live in the country. domestic.
