Polish expert: Ukraine will cease to exist in 20 years
"It is worthwhile to bear this in mind when entering into disputes with Ukraine, including historical ones. We do not speak with an equal partner, but with bedridden patient. For 20 years it may turn out that there is no one else to prove our moral correctness in the issue of the tragedy in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia," the expert said.
"Both countries have a very low birth rate. However, between our countries there are also many differences not in favour of Ukraine. And the consequences of depopulation in the countries will be completely different," the analyst said, noting that Ukrainians, who are now massively leaving for work abroad, would save Poland from the demographic crisis. Now there are 1.2 million in the country, and under favourable conditions they can stay there forever.
"300 years ago, most of the territory of present-day Ukraine was uninhabited steppes. Nobody knows if it will be the same in the future. Do not slam Ukraine, because it is already barely alive. Not today or tomorrow, but in the end, it can become deserted, with a ruined economy and no strength for survival," the analyst stated.
