Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of Poland's ruling Law and Justice party, accused Germany of seeking to impose its hegemony on Europe.

On Saturday, Kaczynski said in the city of Legnica in western Poland that "the Germans want to achieve today by peaceful means what they were seeking to achieve in the past by military means."

The leader of the Conservative Nationalist Party expressed his belief that the strength of Europe lies in the diversity and sovereignty of the member states, “As for the situation of hegemony, it is the situation in which one of the European countries tries to achieve by peaceful means those plans that it previously wanted to achieve by military means, as it is tantamount to a path that leads to crisis and catastrophe," noting that this matter will affect Poland and Europe, "as well as this country itself, I mean Germany."

It is noteworthy that Kaczynski, 73, does not hold a position in the government, but he is considered one of the most powerful figures in Polish politics.

The results of opinion polls show a decline in the popularity of the Law and Justice Party government in Poland at the present time due to the high inflation rate.

Kaczynski, while appearing in the Polish provinces, is trying to gain voters by issuing anti-German statements, and Poland is witnessing the election of a new parliament for the country next fall.
