Polish Diplomat doesn’t Discount Victory of Ukraine over Russia

The Polish ambassador to the United States publicly admitted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are capable of defeating Russia and intimated that this may be the only tenable formula for peace in the region.

Speaking with Christiane Amanpour on her CNN program Amanpour & Co. today, Poland’s Ambassador to the United States Marek Magierowski said: “I don’t know whether we will find a diplomatic solution, but maybe a military solution… I believe the Ukrainian army is capable of defeating the Russian army right now.”

The significance of this observation by a close ally of Ukraine and a member of NATO is not lost on all observers of the Russo-Ukraine War of 2014-22. Undoubtedly, the United States and the free world were caught like a deer in headlights by the Polish official’s comment.

Magierowski also said “Russia is losing this war right now. Not only in the hearts and minds of Europeans and Americans or the societies of the so-called free world but Russia is losing this war literally,” referring to the fact that Moscow’s military machine has been stymied by the Ukrainian army, National Guard, Territorial Defense and regular citizens. Russia’s ground war has been converted to indiscriminate missile attacks that have killed innocent civilians and children.

The Polish diplomat said that Russian forces have committed “acts of barbarism in Ukraine” that he said were “war crimes, atrocities.” 

Magierowski predicted that despite the outcome of Russia’s war against Ukraine and the free world’s sanctions against Russia and its people, the free world will have to deal with Putin with years to come.

Poland’s Ambassador told CNN that sanctions on Russia should “last for a decade, maybe 15 years” following Moscow’s invasion and assault on Ukraine.  

“I think that if we wanted to retaliate for that invasion against Ukraine with punitive measures and by crippling the Russian economy, we have to be determined and ready to uphold the sanctions in a longer term. Maybe they should last for a decade, maybe 15 years, because I’m afraid we are going to live with Mr. Putin for many years to come,” Magierowski told Amanpour in the interview.    

“I do believe and I am confident that Mr. Putin and his cronies and all his closest aides will end up in the dock, in The Hague, in the International Criminal Court, because this is what he has already fully deserved,” Magierowski said.
