(ANSA) - BERLINO, 02 AGO - "Today Ukraine is defending Poland, Europe, therefore also Germany. If the heroic Ukrainian resistance does not stop Putin's imperial plans, Poland and the Baltic states would be directly threatened by further expansion of the Russian sphere of influence in Central Europe." This was said by the Polish president, Andrzej Duda, in an interview with the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Duda added that the Nord Stream pipeline remains his "great reproach to Germany," recalling that he often pointed out to former Chancellor Angela Merkel "that these pipelines would be harmful for Europe and deadly for us Poles," because they are "the key to Russian domination of the European market." Duda, however, repeated that he is a staunch supporter of "good German-Polish relations." (ANSA).
