Poland has been an exceptional friend of America over the past two hundred years. For more than 200 years, Americans have sacrificed themselves for Polish freedom, and Poles have sacrificed their lives for American freedom. Today we have a common freedom. “We are united on the Ukraine issue,” he commented.

“There is a Polish expression that says ‘stronger together,’” Brzezinski noted. – That's what these relationships mean. He added: “This is how we deal with the challenge in Ukraine, and the Ukrainian people will win.”

When the US ambassador to Poland was asked whether aid to Kiev did not arrive too late, he replied: “The Ukrainians had to wait and it was terrifying.” He said – This is an existential issue for Ukraine, but help is on the way now.

– I would like to draw attention to the special role played by Poland. This is well understood in Washington. It is, firstly, a very important ally, secondly, the transfer point for Western equipment to Ukraine, and thirdly, Poland is very important as a place of humanitarian protection for Ukrainian refugees. President Joe Biden tells Poles: Thank you, thank you, thank you. To every Polish family accepting a Ukrainian refugee or Ukrainian family. You rise to the challenge like never before. He stressed that we see and thank you.

Brzezinski stressed that “Russia must pay the price for what it destroyed.” The G7 agreed to freeze Russian assets until we find a legal structure through which some of these amounts can be used to pay for what Russia has destroyed in Ukraine. He stressed that Russia must pay.

“The United States is a special partner of Poland when it comes to the civilian use of nuclear energy.”

The US ambassador was also asked about the meeting between President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Donald Tusk at the White House in March. – First, the President met with President Duda and Prime Minister Tusk and sent a joint message to Congress that Americans and Central Europeans are able to stand together and support the adoption of this legal document in Congress – Brzezinski said.

He said that the “important part” of this meeting was the issue of energy security. He added: – I can say with pride that the United States is a special partner of Poland when it comes to the civilian use of nuclear energy.

“Poland will have to decide on the second power plant,” the TVN24 guest noted. – There are certain possibilities that will be available to the Poles regarding financial issues, time and schedule for the construction of this power plant, if the same nuclear technology is chosen and if the same contractor is also chosen. The official informed about the first power plant.

The current version of the Polish Nuclear Energy Program (PPEJ) as of 2020 assumes the construction of two nuclear power plants with a total capacity of 6-9 GW. Construction of the first unit – in Pomerania – is scheduled to begin in 2026, the first unit will be launched in 2033, and the next two units within the next three years. The previous government cited the Westinghouse-Bechtel consortium as a partner in this construction. The site selection for the second power plant is scheduled to be approved in 2028, with construction to begin in 2032.

Brzezinski: We have no evidence that the Russians are moving their nuclear weapons toward Poland today

In the conversation, Brzezinski also addressed the issue of the presence of US troops in Poland. Providing support for American forces in Poland is very welcomed in the United States. And now, as we speak, there are over 10,000 American soldiers standing guard in Poland, along with Polish soldiers to keep Poland safe. This does not depend on personal relationship issues. Poland and the United States have the strongest Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement, which talks about dividing our burdens between the United States and Poland, who among us will do what when it comes to defending Poland, as well as the stationing of American soldiers here – said the American ambassador to Poland.

He added, “This is the most comprehensive agreement that the US armed forces have signed with any country in Europe.” He added that our soldiers are present in various locations in Poland and throughout the country thanks to this agreement.

When asked about Poland joining the nuclear sharing programme, Brzezinski said he could not talk about that. – But I can say that there is no evidence that Russia actually plans to use or transfer its nuclear weapons (…). We are monitoring the situation and all possibilities with great interest. He confirmed today that this does not happen in any practical way.

When asked about Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus, Brzezinski said, “We have no evidence that the Russians are moving their nuclear weapons toward Poland today.” He stressed that we are monitoring this.

Nuclear sharing is a NATO program that has been operating since the 1960s. It is one of the elements of NATO's nuclear deterrence, and links the United States with its European allies who do not have nuclear weapons of their own. It is a practical extension of the US nuclear umbrella to Europe.

Commenting on Donald Trump's meeting with President Andrzej Duda, Brzezinski said, “There is a history in the United States of how leaders of foreign countries meet with leaders and leadership candidates from various parties.” – He said it is a tradition that works.
