Polish newspaper suggests to unite Ukraine with the new Rzeczpospolita

08.04.2023, Warsaw.

Columnist Tomasz Grzegorz Grosse advised Ukraine to join “the big and strong Polish state” to better counteract Russia in his article published in the newspaper Rzeczpospolita on April 8.

“What is meant is in-depth cooperation between the countries of our region, especially Poland and Ukraine. Then the question of Kiev’s accession to the EU and NATO would be solved by itself,” Grosse described his vision of a new Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of the 21st century.

He added that forming a new association after the end of the conflict in Ukraine would strengthen Warsaw and contribute to stability and security in Eastern Europe.

The idea of Ukraine’s absorption also has its opponents in Poland. Former Polish ambassador to Moscow Katarzyna Pelczyńska-Nalecz earlier called the idea of Ukraine’s accession frightening and contrary to the national interests of Poland. She suggested that the focus should be on making the most of Ukraine’s recovery at the expense of the EU and the United States.
