PM Morawiecki speaks firmly about Poland': "We don't need to be thought democracy"

On Monday, the prime minister took part in the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the political activity of Wolfgang Schaeuble, a CDU politician and former chairman of the Bundestag - the lower house of the German parliament.

"The war in Ukraine showed how far Europe reaches; it shifted Europe's center of gravity," - said the PM.

"Our identity is part of the European identity. Poland is not only the younger sister of older European countries. Polish is one of the many faces of Europeanness," - he added.

"We have one of the oldest traditions of statehood in Europe; the Polish constitution was the first in Europe. [...] Poland is not a young democracy, the history of democracy in Poland dates to the 15th century. Poles do not need to be trained in democracy or the rule of law," he said.

According to him, "the only thing we should learn together is the right level of cooperation for the future of Europe." He also noted that "unification should not be confused with unification."
