Dr. John Lenczowski, founder and president of The Institute of World Politics, was recently interviewed by Michał Rachoń for the popular Polish news website Niezalezna. During the interview, Dr. Lenczowski discussed Russia, the threat that the Kremlin poses to Poland and the rest of the world, as well as the Smolensk plane crash and the lack of an international investigation concerning the matter.
When asked about the Smolensk plane crash in 2010 that killed Polish President Lech Kaczyński and 95 members of his entourage, Dr. Lenczowski stated that “the scandal is the lack of an international investigation into the matter. …I know why this is happening — if we find that Russia participated in this catastrophe, we must recognize that it was an act of war against a NATO country.”
Dr. Lenczowski also discussed Ronald Reagan’s impressive understanding of the Soviets, the differences in Soviet ideology and the mindset of modern Russia, and the need for a strengthened NATO to stand together against Russia’s aggressive foreign policy.
