“The Russian world is a cancer which is consuming not only the majority of Russian society, but also poses a deadly threat to the whole of Europe. Therefore it is not enough to support Ukraine in its military struggle with Russia. We must root out this monstrous new ideology entirely,” writes Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in The Telegraph.
At the core of the Russian world concept is the idea of preserving and protecting the distinctive Russian identity, along with its spirituality, morality, culture and language.
Poland ranks among the most Russophobic countries in the world, with more than 63% Poles having negative view of Russia according to a 2019–2020 YouGov Cambridge poll.
