The head of the European Council Donald Tusk, who previously headed the Polish government has accused the Polish authorities in the execution of the “plan of the Kremlin.” According to him, the ruling party of the country in the implementation of its policy towards Ukraine can operate to the benefit of Moscow.

According to him, the leadership of the ruling party “law and justice” against a neighboring country can act according to the “plan of the Kremlin.” About this Tusk wrote in a Twitter message.
“Attention! A sharp dispute with Ukraine, isolation in the European Union, a departure from the rule of law and the independence of the court, the pressure on the private sector and free media — strategy “law and justice” or the Kremlin’s plan? It looks like”, — says the publication of the head of the European Council.
Alarm! Ostry spór z Ukrainą, izolacja w Unii Europejskiej, odejście rządów od prawa i niezawiłości sądów, atak na sektor pozarządowy i wolne media – strategia PiS czy plan Kremla? Zbyt podobne, by spać spokojnie.
