Mariusz Błaszczak commented on Tomasz Siemoniak’s radio interview. He didn’t have to wait long for an answer. “A Russian missile flew into you and you didn’t know anything,” wrote the former head of the Ministry of National Defense.
There is a constant pressure of migrants on the Polish-Belarusian border. Although the number of attempts to enter the country illegally has remained at a similar level for some time, the actions of foreigners initiated by the regime of Alexander Lukashenko pose a problem for the services. The barrier, which was supposed to protect against the uncontrolled influx of people, fulfills its role only partially. There are incidents every day, including attacks on Polish patrols.
Securing the Polish-Belarusian border was the topic of a conversation on Radio ZET. Beata Lubecka asked Tomasz Siemoniak about how the future government wants to get involved in the protection of this border. – I have said it very clearly every time – the border must be tight. What means to use? Let the Border Guard officers talk about it, they know it. The less politics involved, the better. I hope that in the end these security issues will not be such a partisan thrashing. Let politicians provide good conditions and political protection and not run to every conference because of uniforms – said the former head of the Ministry of National Defense.
Błaszczak clashed with Siemoniak. “A Russian missile flew into you and you didn’t know anything”
Siemoniak pointed out that “nothing has changed for now” regarding activities at the border. – I think, but this is my personal opinion, that more emphasis should be placed on the Border Guard. It should be 4 thousand. more positions in the Border Guard. More guards at the border and fewer policemen and soldiers, he said.
Mariusz Błaszczak reacted to these words. “Complete lack of understanding of what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border. This is not a migration crisis, but a hybrid war. The withdrawal of the Polish Army from the border will be a signal for Lukashenko and Putin that they can take the next step. You don’t understand it, but you want to rule the country?” – He was asking.
This comment did not go unnoticed by Siemoniak. “Mr. Błaszczak, a Russian missile flew into you and you didn’t know anything for five months. The Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Army threw papers at you. Take care of the picnics, because the voters have definitely thanked you and your colleagues for governing. These last moves of yours are truly pathetic. It’s sad to see,” the politician admitted.
