Medvedev: If there is no Kaliningrad, then there is no Krakow, Gdańsk, Wroclaw…



The Deputy President of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, told the Poles that some “old names” should be returned to the Polish cities, both German and Russian.

The competent state body of Poland recommended that the inhabitants of that country call the Russian city of Kaliningrad after themselves – Kroleviec.

Medvedev responded to that by saying that then there is no more Krakow, but only – Krakow.

“Polish Russophobes want to teach everyone history. They don’t like the name Kaliningrad. Then there is no Gdańsk either, but only Danzig. Then there is no Šćećin either, but only Štetin! Not even Wroclaw, but only – Breslau! The list can be expanded,” says Medvedev.

On his internet account, he suggested that Poland itself be renamed.

“Of course, then there is no more Poland either. Only the Duchy of Warsaw or the Kingdom of Poland as an integral part of the Russian Federation – the successor of the Russian Empire,” wrote Medvedev.
