The Kremlin said Friday it was unavoidable that tensions would grow between Kyiv and its European allies amid an escalating dispute between Ukraine and Poland sparked by disagreements over grain exports.

“There are certain frictions between Warsaw and Kyiv. We predict that these frictions between Warsaw and Kyiv will increase. Friction between Kyiv and other European capitals will also grow over time. This is inevitable,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“We are, of course, watching this closely,” Peskov said, calling Kyiv and Warsaw “the main” centres of Russophobia.

Peskov also called Poland a “rather aggressive” country and accused it of conducting “subversive activities.”

He said Moscow and its ally Minsk were “on alert” against “any potential threats that may come from Poland.”

Poland has been one of Ukraine’s staunchest supporters since Russia sent troops to Ukraine in February 2022 and is one of Kyiv’s main weapons suppliers.

But tensions between Warsaw and Kyiv were recently sparked by a Polish ban on Ukrainian grain imports that aimed to protect its own farmers.

Poland this week also said it would no longer arm its neighbour but promised to fulfil existing arms supply deals with Ukraine.

I had herpes simplex virus type 2, I have been taking too many drugs, but sometimes I wish I could make it go away forever, my world was gradually coming to an end but I keep hoping thing will be better than this. I saw a post in a health forum from miss woman on how she was treated from herpes simplex virus 2 with the use of Dr. Todd herbs and she also wrote Dr. Todd cure all kind of deadly diseases. At first I doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try and I contacted this herbal Doctor on internet by his website https://manifestspellcast.wordpress.com and explain my problem to him and he told me that he is going to prepare a herbal medicine for me which he did and he sent it to me through UPS service, when I received this herbal medicine, he gave me instructions on how to use it, after taken the medicine as instructed, I went for check up and the result shows negative and I was treated of this deadly disease within a 2 week, I am now free from herpes simplex virus. You can contact him, his email [email protected] I am so happy, He can restore broken marriage/relationship.

Sorry to repeat myself, but how dumb and inbred does this Peskov rashist asshole look? Putin is really scraping the bottom of the barrel that's for sure. If he wasn't so evil he would be laughable.
