Russia-Ukraine war: Polish president Andrzej Duda says calls with Vladimir Putin ‘like speaking to Hitler’

Polish President Andrzej Duda.

Duda, in an interview with Bild first released on its YouTube channel late on Wednesday (Thursday AEST), said such discussions only legitimised an illegal war in Ukraine.

“Did anyone speak like this with Adolf Hitler during World War II?” Duda said. “Did anyone say that Adolf Hitler must save face? That we should proceed in such a way that it is not humiliating for Adolf Hitler? I have not heard such voices.”

The conflict in Ukraine, described by Moscow as a “special military operation” to stamp out perceived threats to its security, has flattened cities, killed thousands of civilians and forced more than 7 million people to flee the country.

Ukraine and its Western allies say Russia is waging an unprovoked war to grab territory.

Polish President Andrzej Duda has slammed the leaders of France and Germany over their phone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
