Russia’s Actions Are Genocide

Poland is the first country to openly declare that the atrocities that Russians embody in Ukraine and on Ukrainians are Genocide

On April 6, Polish president Andrzej Duda said that Russia's actions in Ukraine are Genocide. And the progressive countries of the world should start a tougher dialogue with the Kremlin.

Duda gave a short comment to CNN:

- The purpose of this invasion is to destroy the Ukrainian nation. We have always heard that we need to talk to Russia. But the dialogue with Russia does not make sense... Putin needs to set tough conditions. I must say that if he does not fulfill these conditions, we will have nothing to talk about.

"Enough of the avoidance tactics and false gestures. Enough! Sanctions don't work. Cut Russian Genocide off from its air supply!" Tweet from Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki on 3 April.

When the armed forces of Ukraine liberated Bucha and the world was exposed to all the horrors that the Russians had done to Ukrainians of all genders and ages and even to animals, Morawiecki was one of the first to call for the creation of an international commission to study Russia's crimes against Ukrainians.

"Bucha, Irpen, Gostomel, and Motyzhin are places that we will remember. The Russians committed Genocide. This should be properly documented and assessed," the Polish prime minister said in a briefing with journalists.

The minister of foreign affairs of Poland is sure that the embargo on Russian coal from the 5th package of sanctions is not enough to end the war. It is necessary to ban oil and gas from the country of the aggressor.

"It's good that a decision has been made on a new package of sanctions against Russia, including a ban on coal imports, but we have to go much further," Marcin Przydach.

The fact that Russia will not stop in its atrocities and the number of victims in Ukraine will only increase are sure the MEP Guy Verhofstadt, the White House, and even Russia itself.

"Their goal is still to weaken Ukraine as much as possible. And we should have no illusions that this goal has changed, even if their tactics have changed," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
