The European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs confirms Russian nuclear attack exercises on Poland.
The Vice-President of the European Parliament, Polish politician Ryszard Czarnecki declared it on Polskie radio, Ukrinform reports.
He says the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs has adopted a so-called Black Sea report - draft resolution on strategic and military situation in the Black Sea basin, which mentions that Russia has conducted exercises on nuclear attack on Poland.
"EU-Russia relationships are the worst over the years. After all, the Black Sea report, adopted by the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs on Monday, proves it. It mentions that Russia has conducted exercises on nuclear attack on our country. This document is very skeptical towards Russia, this is a consequence of the EU continued tough course", the Vice-President of the European Parliament stated.
He stressed the failure of most European leaders to visit the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow on May 9 had a bad impact on the Russians, and it was the EU "accurate hit". The politician explains that the Victory Day for Russia has always been something extraordinary. Such anniversary is the way to demonstrate its power and the fact that Moscow should be taken into account.
"Until recently, Western leaders respected the view and arrived to Moscow. This time everything has changed. Putin expected softening of leading Western countries' line, but he was wrong", Czarnecki said.
It should be reminded that according to Polish media, Moscow rehearsed nuclear attack on Warsaw during joint exercises in Belarus in 2009 and 2013. Thousands of Russian soldiers were involved. Except for a preventive nuclear strike, maneuvers also included "the suppression of a rebellion" of the Polish minority, as well as the invasion the territory of the Baltic States with a breakthrough to the Kaliningrad region.
