Poland would have ‘no choice’ but to ‘enter the conflict’ in Ukraine if the war-torn region fails to defend itself, Warsaw’s ambassador to France has warned.
Jan Emeryk Rościszewski stated Poland would have to enter the war if Ukraine failed to defend itself from Russia because the foundation of its ‘civilisation and culture’ would be threatened.
Mr Rościszewski designed the promises in an interview with French Television channel LCI yesterday.
He claimed: ‘It is not NATO, Poland or Slovakia that are mounting ever much more pressure, but Russia, which has invaded Ukraine.
‘Russia, which is seizing its territories. Russia, which is killing its individuals. And Russia, which is abducting Ukrainian little ones.

‘Therefore, either Ukraine will defend its independence right now, or we will have to enter this conflict.
‘Because our key values, which ended up the basis of our civilisation and our lifestyle will be threatened. Therefore, we will have no option but to enter the conflict.’
But Poland’s Embassy in France slammed some media retailers as ‘sensationalist’ for claiming Mr Mr Rościszewski declared Poland’s immediate involvement in the conflict.
The Embassy produced a assertion which explained: ‘During a thirty-moment discussion with the editor, Ambassador Rościszewski argued for the have to have for allies to help Ukraine. He also spoke about the danger that Russia poses to Europe and European values.
‘A mindful listening to the full conversation makes it clear that there was no announcement of Poland’s immediate involvement in the conflict, only a warning of the outcomes that a Ukrainian defeat could have: the likelihood of a Russian attack, or the involvement of a lot more Central European countries – the Baltic States and Poland.’
Poland suggested final week it would be providing Ukraine with MiG-29 fighter jets within ‘four to six’ weeks.
It has previously despatched 14 German-produced Leopard 2 tanks and supplied to deliver the fighter jets just weeks after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
