Sikorski attacks Lech Kaczyński as Independence celebrations near

Temperatures are running high as celebrations of the 100-year anniversary of Polish independence near. A fierce battle on Twitter erupted between former head of Polish diplomacy Radosław Sikorski and journalist Rafał A. Ziemkiewicz.

“Disgusting. You have lowered yourself to the level of political gutter,” wrote Ziemkiewicz in response to Sikorski’s shameful tweet on the celebrations.

The Former Polish Foreign Minister compared current anniversary celebrations to those of the 25th anniversary of the fall of communism in Poland and somehow managed to connect it to the Smoleńsk plane catastrophe. He also made a jibe at President Lech Kaczyński who died in the plane crash. The statue of Lech Kaczyński is to be unveiled in Warsaw on November 10th.

“The whole democratic world arrived for the 25th anniversary of June 1989. For the 100th anniversary of Polish independence we’ll have the statue of a culprit of the Smoleńsk catastrophe,” wrote Sikorski.

Ziemkiewicz promptly responded by saying that Sikorski has “lowered himself to the level of political gutter.”

Sikorski decided to go on, however, and replied to Ziemkiewicz by asking whether he believed that “General Błasik’s words “You’ll fit in, go on” 300m above the ground in mist is a “lie”?” “The truth can hurt,” Sikorski added referring to the black box recording of Smoleńsk crash.

Be silent for God’s sake. If not due to decency, then at least owing to common sense

Ziemkiewicz struck back by accusing Sikorski of collaborating with Putin to demean the Polish President, propagating hatred and taking away the proper presidential plane, which in his opinion were all causes of the Smoleńsk tragedy. Ziemkiewicz also recounted Sikorski’s errors after the tragedy, by giving the whole investigation over to the Russian side, despite the Russians themselves proposing an international committee.

“Be silent for God’s sake. If not due to decency, then at least owing to common sense. There are boundaries,” Ziemkiewicz concluded.
