Lech Walesa called on to shoot down Russian planes in the Baltic

Lech Walesa, who as President of Poland led the fight against communism, said that would have done if he was commander of us troops in response to the approaching Russian bomber to destroyer “Donald cook” in the Baltic sea — plowed into him. So, says the former head of the Solidarity trade Union, the Americans should answer the “Russian threat”.

Former Polish President Lech Walesa in an interview with Radio Free Europe commented on the may incident in the Baltic sea, when a Russian bomber flew low over the destroyer “Donald cook” United States Navy.

According to him, the US is now necessary to answer the growing Russian threat”. He noted that such antics of the Russian side can not be tolerated, “otherwise they will win”.

Walesa made a loud statement about the span of videoconferencing next to the American ship: “I would hit them,” said former Polish head. However, he wouldn’t kill the pilots (apparently mindful of the case of Turkey – approx.ed.) “shot through the wing”.

In his opinion, Russia would not respond to such actions, and they would not lead to any conflict: “Nobody wants conflict, including Russia,” – said Walesa. In his opinion, Moscow has other methods of achieving their goals — blackmail and intimidation. But the military conflict, says a former Polish head, Russia now can not afford: “It’s too expensive,” he said.
