Duda made the claims in an interview with Reuters news agency in reference to Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev's assertion that NATO is “hostile” to Russia and that East-West relations are descending into a new Cold War.

If Mr Medvedev talks about a Cold War, then looking at Russian actions, it is clear who is seeking a new Cold War,” Duda said.

If someone is undertaking aggressive military activities in Ukraine and Syria, if someone is bolstering his military presence near his neighbours ... then we have an unequivocal answer regarding who wants to start a new Cold War. Certainly, it is not Poland or the NATO alliance.” (nh)
