The new Polish ambassador to Russia, Krzysztof Krajewski, believes that the attitude of the EU or NATO towards Russia can hardly be called Russophobic. In his opinion, the European policy towards Moscow was the result of “hostile actions on the part of the Russian side.”
“In recent months and years, we have been constantly receiving signals that Russia is not interested in improving relations with the European Union, which I can only regret,” the diplomat said.
According to the ambassador, the EU and Russia need a constructive relationship “based on respect for international obligations.”
Commenting on Moscow’s statements about the Russophobic agenda in the EU and NATO, Kraevsky said that the term “Russophobic” “is difficult to use in the context of EU or NATO relations with Russia”.
“Russophobia” is characterized by phobic, unnatural and irrational fear or dread, “the agency quoted him as saying.
At the same time, the ambassador agreed with Moscow’s proposal to build relations “based on facts and not on phobias.”
As the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said earlier, the collective West, led by the United States, is practicing a policy of containment towards Russia. According to her, “Russophobia is the magic wand that comes to the rescue when it is necessary to show that they are supposedly united.”
