"That's exactly what Vladimir Putin wants: he wants European countries are tired of Russian-Ukrainian problems and turned away from them.

"Our country and other societies in Eastern Europe there is a sense that the region lives in the shadow of Moscow, which in fact never ceased to be aggressive. Western Europe has always been protected from Russia to Europe; and because it is different understanding of these issues.

For them, economic relations are primarily a tool for geopolitical purposes. We would also be happy if we had normalized economic situation with Russia! But this requires that she rejected its Imperial ambitions, and ceased to attack their neighbors like Georgia and Ukraine," said Polish Prime Minister.
