In an interview with Sky News, the Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki spoke about Putin's role (anti-role) in the world order, the future of Europe, and the world coalition. According to Morawiecki, the progressive world community supports Ukraine and its sovereignty. And victory over Russia will be common.
"If Europe and the free world lose this battle, lose this war, we will no longer be in danger because Putin will always threaten and blackmail us. Of course, we would like it to be completely removed (from the government — ed.). It is a brute force, and Russia is a superpower," Mateusz Morawiecki.
The prime minister also commented on Russia as an energy exporter. An exporter that no one wants to work with anymore.
"She turned out to be not only a partner she could not trust but also a criminal country. Therefore, we are discussing how not only to get rid of Russian hydrocarbons such as coal or oil as soon as possible but also, in the long run, to get rid of gas, which is emphasized by some EU member states, especially Germany and Austria," said Morawiecki.
The prime minister of Lithuania, Ingrida Šimonytė, also spoke about Putin's blackmail with gas and oil.
"All these projects — Nord Stream and other pipeline systems — they were built for that, these are geopolitical projects, which we have always talked about. This is not economics, this is geopolitics. And now we see how this geopolitics works. And for alternatives, infrastructure is needed. Lithuania has learned its lesson, we have acquired the infrastructure for ourselves. And now, we can recall what Nonna Mordyukova said in the film The Diamond Arm: "Otherwise, we will turn off the gas." Well, turn off the gas, and we will live without your gas, and we don't want to take this gas ourselves," Ingrida Šimonytė.
Today, the issue of energy security is highly acute. And today we are witnessing the process of forced transition to environmentally friendly and alternative energy sources and production methods. 60 years of progress in 6 months.
