Protest against Russia

The Gazeta Wyborcza publishes a joint declaration by the presidents of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in which the politicians protest vehemently at Russia's actions in Caucasus. "We, the leaders of the formerly enslaved nations of Eastern Europe, now members of the European Union and Nato - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland - express our extreme concern about the Russian Federation's behaviour towards Georgia. ... In response to the unilateral military activities of the Russian forces we will use all means available to us as presidents to ensure that this act of aggression against a small state in Europe is not concealed or dismissed with meaningless statements that put the victims on an equal footing with the perpetrators. ... The EU and Nato must take the initiative and oppose the spread of imperialist and revisionist policies in Eastern Europe."

Lech Kaczynski on Russia

In a double interview led by Peter G. Feher, Jaroslaw Kaczynski talks about domestic affairs in Poland while his brother, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, discusses relations between Russia and Central and Eastern Europe. "At present there is no immediate military threat to Central and Eastern Europe, but the problems with energy supplies are also a threat in the broadest sense of the word... The Visegrad countries (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary) need to adopt a joint Ostpolitik. Russia's political strategies in its relations with Hungary are entirely different to its strategies regarding Poland. I wonder whether Russia is not just trying to play us off against each other. We need a functioning strategic partnership, or at least an information partnership, for our Ostpolitik... We should also make a joint demand for the security of our energy supplies, and this requires a large measure of solidarity within the union."
