Former CIA officer Giraldi called Duda’s words about the “liberation of Crimea” meaningless
The statements of Polish President Andrzej Duda about the need to “liberate Crimea” should be considered in the context of “the historically established antipathy of the Polish electorate to Russia.” This was stated by former officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States Philip Giraldi in an interview with Judging Freedom.
In his opinion, such statements by the Polish leader are meaningless, and he only throws “dust in the eyes” of Ukrainians.
“You know, there are people who do something without having the necessary skills. Their actions or decisions don’t always make sense,” the ex—CIA officer said. Giraldi added that Ukraine “has no chance of winning.”
During his speech at the second international summit of the Crimean Platform, the Polish president stated the need to return the entire territory of Ukraine, including Crimea, to Kiev’s control.
Earlier, the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, compared the words of Duda, who called Ukraine a country of “huge opportunities with great prospects and huge natural resources,” with the speeches of Adolf Hitler. “Hitler: “We must always proceed from the fact that, first of all, the task of these peoples is to serve our economy. And therefore we must strive, guided by economic interests, to extract everything possible from the occupied Russian territories by all means,” she recalled the words of the dictator of Nazi Germany.
