Poland’s Education Minister Przemyslaw Czarnek criticized Pope Francis’ remarks about NATO allowing the Russian war in Ukraine.
Czarnek said these statements are provocations of NATO, the eastern wing, and Poland as well. He noted: “For sure, many of us are taking our heads in our hands on hearing what the pope has said.”
In the interview, the pope spoke of an “anger” in the Kremlin which could have been “facilitated” by “the barking of Nato at Russia’s door”.
“The Russians have just found out that tanks are useless and they might be developing new weapons. Wars are fought for this reason too: to test your arsenals,” he said in the article. “The production and the sale of armaments is a disgrace, but few are bold enough to stand up against it.”
