    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki warned that China could be crossing a “red line” if they move forward with plans to supply Russia with weapons.

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared Thursday that the US must draw a “red line” with China if it provides Russia with lethal military aid, saying it would be a “Rubicon” for US-China relations. During a Thursday interview with NBC News, the final day of his US visit, Morawiecki discussed the potential implications of such an action.

    “China is in close cooperation with Russia, unfortunately,”

    Morawiecki went on to say.

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has declared that the close relationship between Russia and China could develop into an alliance that would pose a serious threat to the rest of the world. In a statement, the Prime Minister suggested that the relationship between the two countries could be more than just a “marriage of convenience,” indicating a closer and more dangerous alliance.

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has expressed agreement with the US prediction that the conflict in Ukraine could continue for years, citing Russia’s “huge and vast natural resources” and “patient society” as factors that could prolong the war.

    “Actually, the public opinion in Russia supports the Kremlin by and large, or the majority of the public opinion (does – PAP),” Morawiecki said, comparing the public support for the government in Russia to the situation in Nazi Germany in 1930s “when the society supported Hitler.”

    “This makes the situation of Putin easier, because he does not have to take into account public opinion domestically, whereas public opinion in the United States or in Europe is much more ‘yin-yang’,”

    the prime minister went on to say.

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has expressed his belief that although the chances of Russian President Vladimir Putin appearing in the International Criminal Court (ICC) are slim following the ICC’s recent arrest warrant, “symbolic things still matter.”

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki denounced the recent release of confidential Pentagon records related to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, calling it “unfortunate” but adding that “these sorts of events occur periodically in all countries.”

    The Prime Minister expressed his unwavering faith in US intelligence services despite a recent leak, stating that “I have complete confidence in our best ally, the United States.”
