1Leader of Polish bishops: “The Vatican’s approach to Russia should change to become more mature”

The president of the Polish Bishops’ Conference denounces the “naive and utopian” approach of papal diplomacy toward Russia. He believes that the Holy See has not developed a sufficiently serious approach to the Russian threat, and that it underestimates the experience of Central European countries. He explains that the main motivation for the Russian aggression on Ukraine was “the fear that the democracy that has taken root there would penetrate the Russian Federation and break it up from within,” which Putin cannot allow. The most important thing now is that “the Holy See supports Ukraine at all levels and does not allow itself to be guided by utopian thoughts drawn from liberation theology.” The president of the Polish episcopate also welcomes the acceleration of the process of Polish-Ukrainian reconciliation, 80 years after the beginning of the genocide of 1942-1944, during which 100,000 Poles were massacred by Ukrainian militiamen. This event, largely unknown in Western Europe, has remained very present in Polish collective memory, but the urgency of solidarity in the face of the Russian attack has won out over the wounds of the past.
