The Russian’s anger because of the visit of European politicians to Kyiv must be great. And even more to the words of Jarosław Kaczynski about the need for a peace mission in Ukraine. Dmitry Rogozin, the Director-General of Roskosmos, former Russian Deputy Prime Minister of Defense and Space Industry, and Russian Ambassador to NATO, commented on the words of the Polish Deputy Prime Minister and wrote: “Come to Smoleńsk, let’s talk.”
Rogozin posted these threats on his official Twitter account, but as you can notice, the Tweet has disappeared. Hopefully, there is a screenshot of that Tweet done by “Kluby GP New York.”
“Woow… after 12 years… we will hang it on the wall. Kreml has admitted to the Smoleńsk 2010 catastrohpe. Nobody thought that today’s visit of Jarosław Kaczyński in Kyiv will be so historical,” Kluby GP New York wrote.
“In case this Russky deletes his Tweet or they “delete” him first and then this tweet, here is a sweet screenshot,” it was added.

He commented on the attached dispatch of the Russian agency TASS on the words of Jarosław Kaczynski on the need for a humanitarian mission (e.g., NATO) in Ukraine. It is difficult to understand these words not only as a threat but also as a commitment – intentional or unintentional – to the Smolensk attack. Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who was hated by Vladimir Putin for his famous visit to Tbilisi in 2008 during the Russian aggression against Georgia, died in the plane crash in Smoleńsk on April 10, 2010.
Rogozin was Russia’s Ambassador to NATO from 2008 to 2011. He was known for his aggressive, simple statements to Georgia and Ukraine. From 2011 to 2018, he was Deputy Prime Minister of Russia and was responsible for the arms industry. Since 2018, he has been CEO of Roskosmos, NASA’s Russian counterpart.
