Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergei Andreyev said that does not recall his statements about the history of the Second world war, but simply provides clarity in connection with incorrect interpretation of his words.
WARSAW, September 28. Russian Ambassador to Poland Sergey Andreev has denied reports that following the visit of the Polish foreign Ministry has withdrawn their statements about the beginning of the Second world war.
The head of the Russian diplomatic mission in Poland TVN24 in an interview that aired Friday night in the program “Black on white”, referring to the causes of the outbreak of the Second world war, said that Poland in the 30-ies of XX century repeatedly blocked the creation of a coalition against Hitler’s Germany. The Polish foreign Ministry issued an official statement criticizing the position of the Russian Ambassador in Warsaw called Andreeva. Media reported that after the visit on Monday, the Ambassador withdrew their statements.
“I didn’t say anything and nothing was withdrawn,” said Andreev, commenting on the message of the Reuters.
“I said I may not be exactly formulated, and this gave rise to misinterpretations. I didn’t say that Poland shares responsibility for the outbreak of the Second world war. It was about the fact that the policy of the Polish government in the 30-ies of the last century has led Poland to catastrophe” — said the Russian Ambassador in Poland.
“I’m not withdrawing my statement, I just clarified due to wrong interpretations”, — said Andreev.
The Russian Ambassador in Poland stressed that “didn’t mean to insult his remarks by anyone, including the Polish people.” The Ambassador noted that the Polish foreign Ministry held an exchange of views. “I hope that we mutually understood each other”, — said Andreev.
