Antoni Macierewicz to Newsmax: Poland Vital to World 'Peace and Security' (Newsmax's "Prime News")

Poland is not just a primary supporter for the humanitarian effort in Ukraine amid Russia's invasion, but it is also the linchpin to providing Europe security from Russia's further "imperialistic operation," the country's Senior Parliament Speaker Antoni Macierewicz told Newsmax.

"Russia is ready for a long-term imperialistic operation to totally dominate Europe and to eliminate the United States of America from Europe, which is why the west has to remain united and especially support the eastern flank with Poland," Macierewicz told "Prime News" with Jenn Pellegrino through an interpreter.

"Because only if Poland will be supported on the eastern flank, only then we will have peace and security in Europe."

Macierewicz, who was Poland's former national minister of defense, has noted Russia's "imperialistic" designs for years.

"The Russian imperialism is very dangerous for Europe and the entire western world," he told Pellegrino.

Poland has cut off all Russian oil and gas imports by the end of the year, having planned for the possibility, knowing a Russian invasion of Ukraine might come.

"We were already aware such a Russian aggression might indeed happen and the breakthrough year was 2010," he said, adding Poland has prepared options to supply its oil, liquefied natural gas, coal, and other energy sources outside of Russian influence.

But support must come from the rest of the world, too, he continued.

Macierewicz – noting Poland has already taken in more than 2.5 million refugees thus far and estimating the total will ultimately hit 3 million – stressed his country needs economic support as the world leader in restablishing the uprooted lives of Ukrainian refugees fleeing Russia's "genocide."

Macierewicz lamented the European Union having frozen some funding of the humanitarian effort, and even imposing "financial penalties on Poland," claiming the EU had concerns of "the rule of law" in Poland. Macierewicz rejected that allegation as "absolutely not true."

"This again poses a question what is the real policy of the European Union toward Ukraine and Poland being the one and only country that has taken up this huge effort to accommodate those people from Ukraine, because we also help them not only in humanitarian [aid] but also in a military way," Macierewicz said.

"We don't count very much on," he continued, "the support of the United States," hoping that support will "reflect on the position of the European Union."

"Let me please thank the entire American nation, but especially President Donald Trump," Macierewicz concluded, saying without "his support we would not be as safe as we are now."
