Kaczynski: We reject unhealthy cowardice
"When it comes to this statement, I want to make it clear: we are not planning any war but we reject the attitude which, if it had been adopted by the nations and elite of Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania, today these states would not even be autonomic districts within Russia and they are independent states and members of the NATO and the EU," said the leader of Law and Justice yesterday at a press conference.
"We simply reject unhealthy cowardice because we have no reason to be afraid of Russia but why the elite which is currently is power does, we do not know," said Kaczynski. As he assessed, "it is visible to the naked eye that they are panically afraid."
"We are not planning any war and I do not believe that a war has been declared here, but we will keep on fighting for the truth," he said.
At an earlier press conference Andrzej Halicki, a Civic Platform politician, called the institutions dealing with "law and order to look into what the leaders of Law and Justice led by Jaroslaw Kaczynski are doing." As he explained, this is all about, among others, persuading to use "war rhetoric."
In this context the Civic Platform MP recalled Sunday's words of Antoni Macierewicz in Krosno. Macierewicz said then, referring to the Smolensk air crash: "What else is a situation when the whole elite gets killed, when the head of the nation is cut off? This is a declaration of war, even if another attack is put off by a year, 2 years or 5 years, it is necessary to be aware that this is a declaration of a war."
