Radek Sikorski's diary: Show Putin what you think of him – eat a Polish apple

Plus: Arctic escapes, and the long reach of Boris Johnson's fan club

I made a welcome escape from sweltering Warsaw to the cloudy cool of Bodø, halfway up the coast of Norway, north of Iceland. Bodø’s harbour stays ice-free all year round only thanks to the Gulf Stream. The fjords bubble with whirlpools and offer some of the best cold-water scuba diving in the world. When the mist clears, the air in this visibly prosperous place has an Alpine, colour-enhancing quality. It’s my first time beyond the Arctic circle and the dusk through the night makes it hard to sleep. ‘Now imagine,’ says the wife over the phone from Washington, ‘what it was like to try to go to sleep in a Soviet-era hotel in Vorkuta, in late June, without curtains.’

During our talks, Norway’s genial foreign minister, Børge Brende, gets feedback on his decision to join EU sanctions on Russia over Ukraine. The social democratic opposition leader, Jonas Store, backs him. But on a boat ride to see eagles nesting, Brende’s phone heats up with messages from his opponents on the right. During the Cold War, the right resisted Bolshevism. Today’s hard right loves Putinism. They don’t have an ideology exactly, but they do have a slogan: ‘Enemies of liberal democracy, competitive markets, gays and the EU, unite!’

In Reitan, not far from Bødo, we visit Norway’s National Joint Headquarters, a vast bunker carved 300 metres into a mountain, originally constructed by the Germans using POWs. Huge screens show activity all over the Arctic: Russian strategic bombers, nuclear submarines, ICBMs aimed at the US. Russia’s new gas and oil fields, abundant fisheries, traffic through the northern route to the Far East, even coalfields in Spitsbergen make the Arctic denser with military and economic activity than ever before. In addition, the long northern border between Russia and Norway probably demarcates the widest gap in standard of living across any international border: the Russian Arctic is as impoverished as the Norwegian Arctic is rich. The Norwegians are admirably pragmatic, keeping their border permeable for ordinary Russians and maintaining a hotline with Russia’s Northern Fleet. And if things go badly? The US Marines have stashed equipment in caverns all over the area, just in case.

In an interview, a Norwegian journalist wanted to know if we regarded a Russian ‘health’ ban on Polish apples as being politically motivated, like a similar ban on Norway’s salmon once was. Can it be a coincidence, I asked, that Moldovan wine, Georgian mineral water or Ukrainian vegetables become poisonous for the Russian public at precisely the moment when their government finds it politically convenient to apply pressure? Poland is the world’s largest apple exporter, and we will develop alternative markets. The Russian ban probably rescued Georgian vineyards by forcing them to compete and make Georgian wine excellent, rather than merely drinkable. Polish cider will be next. And in the meantime, if you want to show what you think of Putin, eat a Polish apple and then give one to a friend.

From the Arctic, I had to hurry back to the Polish countryside to prepare for the historic first visit to our house, Chobielin, by @MayorofLondon and Mrs Johnson. HMG had asked Boris to represent the UK at the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, and I asked through official channels if the Mayor might consider a detour to the provinces afterwards. His office cheerfully wrote back: ‘The mayor remembers your articles in The Spectator 20 years ago about restoring an old manor house and would be delighted to see how it’s turned out.’ First, we visited Bydgoszcz, my home town and my constituency. Secretly, I was wondering how he would handle the fact that here I am a bigger celebrity than him. But as we walked into the town square, a roar of English voices rose up from the cafés: ‘Boris, what are you doing here?!’ He spent the next 20 minutes posing for photos with fans of Speedway motorcycle racing, who had come to Bydgoszcz for the World Cup. Apparently, our track is one of the best in Europe.

This amazing scene reinforced one of my long-held views. Every Tory politician I talk to is incredulous when I tell them that the European Commission is a Thatcherite, pro-market institution that heroically resists potty protectionist schemes devised by member states. Boris and Marina returned to London via Ryanair, which maintains three daily flights to the British Isles from Bydgoszcz. I’ve no doubt that the Speedway fans travelled the same way. The resurgence of regional European airports like ours has only been possible because the EU’s open skies policy has smashed the monopolies of national carriers, allowing a thousand runways to bloom. It was decent of Boris to acknowledge it, and Poland’s success, in his Bloomberg speech.

    I have a lot of respect for Poland, and even more so for Norway (a country that more than any other sorts it’s deck of cards in the right order and prepares for the future), however recently I have supported Moscow to some extent, in what I see is a response to an unabrasively imperalist European Union.

    How we can have a go at Moscow for their ‘sanctions’ is beyond me. They are in response to the sanctions ‘we’ imposed, and are already having an effect on the weaker of the Eurozone countries. The Russian people, being much more hardier and flexible than the ‘sissy’ Western Europe people will not mind adapting their tastes if it means not giving in to the West. I doubt you can say the same for us when it comes to oil and gas. So sorry Mr Sikorski, I certainly won’t be buying any Polish apples. Polish and Russian apples may as well come from the same barrel for all I care.

    Here are some articles you may want to mull over:
    THE TELEGRAPH – “Fresh evidence of how the West lured Ukraine into it’s orbit” – http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/vladimir-putin/11023577/Fresh-evidence-of-how-the-West-lured-Ukraine-into-its-orbit.html
    THE GUARDIAN – “Greek farmers hit hard by Russian sanctions” – http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/13/greece-farmers-russian-sanctions-rotten-fruit

    Quite simply I find the European Union and the United States as a collection of slimy, hypocritical, imperalist, little rodents.

    There is outrage about Malaysia Airlines F17, but not about Iran Air F655. There is outrage about the referendum in Crimea, but not about the lack of one in Kosovo. There is outrage at Russian sanctions, but not at American ones.

    “Every Tory politician I talk to is incredulous when I tell them that the
    European Commission is a Thatcherite, pro-market institution that
    heroically resists potty protectionist schemes devised by member states.”

    This just goes to show how far conservatism has sold out (and I am a conservative).

    I am far from being a socialist, and have always believed in the power of competition and the motivation needed for action. Nevertheless I am proud of the United Kingdom being an independent nation. I love my country more than any economic theory or policy. The Tories are exactly the opposite, too busy sweltering over the need to protect the heaps of money that they have amassed. There was a time when on principle a British conservative force would have acted as a bulwark against the EU and European federalism, but in it’s new role as being the political arm of the City of London, the Conservative Party has melted at this prospect and no doubt your Polish “conservatives” have done the same.

    It is 2014 now Mr Sikorskis: the choice is no longer between Soviet imperalism with socialist markets, or European imperalism with ‘liberal’ markets.

    After all, I’m sure your friends in Norway know exactly that.

    • Terry Field

      The Eu is undemocratic. Indeed, it is ANTI-democratic.

      It gives me no pleasure to say that.

      I was a great supporter of European Union but I have observed the undemocratic charade of a developing super state run by scumbags like Barosso and the Bank Clerk in amazement – they are autocrats.

      The EU Parliament is a sick joke – it is a rubberstamp full of nodding heads – and I am NOT a UKIP supporter – I am a normal, plain democrat – a normal Brit sickened by the new Soviet Union into which my country is being sucked.

      I could not give a twopenny fcuk about the ‘economics’ of union any more – I ONLY care about what is happening to our democracy – like I HATE what the bloody unions and the Labour party do to dragoon old folk to vote for the ‘right’ party wherever the postal vote system in a by-election is abused.

      WHY is the electoral commission run by party hacks?????????? – WHY are they unresponsive to complaints about malpractice?????????????????

      Does anyone care about democracy any more.

      The Russians are threatened by encirclement by a rapacious NATO – and this was ruled out by a NATO promise to Putin’s predecessor – now long broken.

      Putin is a Scumbag, but we have pushed him to a corner.

      And the Russians have been dead right about Libya, the Syrian theocratic threat, and the rest of the Middle East.

      It is the West that has destroyed order; it is the left in the West that has promoted the Islamic radical threat – both at home and abroad in the Levant.

      A no-fly zone promise in Libya – HA!

      The Bush solution in Iraq and Afghanistan – INSANE!

      Our leaders – Blair



      Cameron – what a let-down.

      In France – Hollande!!!!!!

      Germany asleep forever.

      Barrack (lets give North Africa to the radical islamists) Obama. The end of post-war US political reliability.

    • M P Jones

      Well spoken.

      Really a good idea to shoot yourself in the foot by picking a fight with Russia – a natural ally geographically and in terms of common interests – considering the current state of the economy.

      This hysterical nonsense is already having serious consequences for European recovery because Russia is now forced to seek alternative long-term trade partners, ready to step in and take over Europe’s trade. Once out I think European, including British, exporters will find it difficult to get back in.

      Russia is not the USSR and Putin not Stalin. We need to replace politicians that live in the 20th century and their petrified minds.Here are some data our idiot politicians in Brussels and elsewhere with their skimble-skambling foreign policies should have considered in some depth:


      With regard to the downing of MH17, why hasn’t the tower to craft communication and the cockpit voice recording been released? Could it be because they prove the plane was shot down by the Ukrainian air force? The US surveillance of the area in question is intensive. If evidence of the plane being downed by Russians or separatists existed it would have been published with great fanfare a long time ago.

      As for Polish apples, considering our balance of payments I see no reason to import anything we can produce domestically – especially products that are of superior quality in any event.

      • Knives_and_Faux

        “Could it be because they prove the plane was shot down by the Ukrainian air force?”
        Yes, as I was told last night.

        • Sean Lamb

          I suspect it will prove to be a BUK missile by one side or the other. Why? Because the US and Ukraine have always been very firm this is what happened – since they are in a position to know I think we can trust them. On the other hand the Russians have been jumping from scenario to scenario because they genuinely have no idea what happened.
          Using a plane fired missile wouldn’t have the same desired at-night-all-cats-are-grey effect that would result from a BUK missile.

          • M P Jones

            Two German ballistics specialists have, independently of each other, stated that the plane could not have been brought down by a ground-to-air missile but was shot down by a fighter plane.

            After this text I published the relevant links, and my post was marked as spam and not published – I have no idea why. I’ll try to publish without the links and see if that works.

          • M P Jones
          • Sean Lamb

            MP Jones the photos on that site don’t look inconsistent with holes made by shrapnel of an exploding missile. However, I don’t have expertise in this field.
            If I was planning this operation from the Ukrainian side I would use a BUK missile system nudged right up to the front line. Using an air to air missile seems to be inherently risky in terms of being caught.
            As always in these situations a lot of misinformation will be put out with hidden agendas. One can find a link for anything you want to prove on the internet.

          • M P Jones

            Absolutely. I don’t have any skin in this game but am simply attempting to find out what happened.

            My current conclusion is that the downing of the plane was a US-inspired false flag operation, but it could also have been a military accident. One thing I am sure of, though, is that with the level of surveillance carried out by the US, if this had been carried out by the separatists or the Russians proofs would have been forthcoming a long time ago.

            With regard to the holes in the cockpit I do think they look inconsistent with the damage from a ground-to-air missile because they issue from both directions. Damage from an exploding missile will come from one direction only.

          • Sean Lamb

            Having given some thought to this I would suggest the following. The fighter jet was there to provide insurance if the BUK missile failed to hit its target or only partially did so to make certain the plane was downed and there were no survivors.
            Whether it actually did so would need to be assessed based on wreckage. If it did need to be utilized then there might be some strange discrepancies in the flight recorder data.
            While you can understand the Ukrainians desire that the plane not survive to leave any potential witnesses, they would have been better off leaving the fog of war and a solitary BUK missile scenario, as even if the missile failed to down the plane this would not alter the essential ambiguity of the evidence as regards who fired.
            By engineering back-up plans they undermined the purity of the original scenario and this potentially might be an Achilles’s heel. Although I am reasonably confident in the ability of air crash investigators to avoid following where the evidence leads them.

          • M P Jones

            Your scenario may very well be the correct one.

            One thing is certain: it did not happen the way the US/EU propaganda machine claimed.

          • M P Jones

            Several attempts later I must say that the truth is extremely heavily censored here. I shall make one more attempt:

            The first link was again black-listed and the post killed. I’ll make another attempt. If you Google this the top hit will lead to the correct web site:


  • Roger Hudson

    So, a Bullingdon club get-together.
    He seems to think Putinism ,as he calls it, is a threat to our way of life as Soviet communism was. He is just wrong.

    • Nele Schindler

      I know … ‘Boris and Marina’. Yikes and double yikes.

  • Mitko Zafirov

    As a Bulgarian & British taxpayer and proud European citizen I fully support Mr. Sikorski and his strong stand against the Russian neo-imperialistic folly. I will eat Polish apples and Baltic vegetables. And in the end of the day I’m sure that if we stay together – our 16 trillion dollar economy will survive any sanctions imposed by the 2 trillion dollar gas station. The 1st step of stopping Putin will be Mr. Sikorski to become EU “Foreign Minister”, the 2nd one will be creating the common energy market and negotiating with Gazprom from a position of strength.

    • Atticus

      Your vision is not one that I believe many British people share… thankfully.

      • dalai guevara

        “Leaving the sweltering Warsaw to the cloudy cool of Bodø …”
        The exact same thing applies in Paris/Provence, Vienna/the mountains, Rome/Tuscany, Madrid/the coast, Berlin/Ruegen, Athens/ the islands. People all over Europe know what sort of culture they share.

    • Terry Field

      Policy base on revenge and bitterness over the past.
      That is the definition of EU political life.
      I regret Poland’s desperate and brutally repressed history, but policy is not about revenge.
      If it were, and if it had the resources to do so, Britain would range the globe, killing and pillaging.

    • Terry Field

      Another immigrant with an axe to grind.
      Go home and rabble-rouse there, please, we do not want your poisonous Europeans social infection.
      You are as dangerously destabilising to our democracy as is Islam.

      • Wiktor

        Mate, this guy is paying his taxes in your country, ‘our democracy’ is just as much yours as it is his.
        And if policy were about revenge, what could Britain’s revenge possibly be for? Would that perhaps be for centuries of being an uber-aggresive empire and doing exactly that – pillaging the globe? So quite the reverse buddy, if policy were about revenge, a host of countries worldwide would be doing exactly that to Britain.

        • Terry Field

          To answe your points in sequence:
          1 I do not know and you do not know what taxes he pays and to whom he pays it.
          2 No, a recent arrival is not the same as a long term-bred-to-the-country indiginous. As with the white killers in Australia compared to the gentle Abos. A modern, fashionable lie designed to spread commerce not maintain civilisation.
          3 British revenge: – some examples – the illegal theft of the meat pie by Australians and its illegal sale there without royalties paid. The poisonous injection of Indian herbs into fine English culinary tradition; the destruction of British Lamb by the use of the Balti spices. The illegal use of footballs across the world in plain contravention of British rights to the quiet enjoyment of a game that they and only they invented. The illegal acquisition of Africa and India against the settled imperial system that alone brought civilisation and biscuits to these dark and smelly areas.
          No it was a fine centre of civilisation – the uber-aggressives were the French, Belgian, Spanish and Portuguese – you are a liar.
          The dark forces of lies and ignorance that you represent are systematically destroying the world. Just LOOK at the state of most so-called nations, that are in reality worse governed than the smallest English parish council is when the local councillor may have a touch too much Elderberry wine.

      • Mitko Zafirov

        I understand that you have a lot of reasons not to like immigrants, that is why I put that disclaimer. I came here to study and work and contribute to the British society. But obviously you feel that my “European” values – of democracy and free markets are far worse than the values of Putin, the peacemaker. Your hatred of Brussels prevents you from seeing the despotism that prevails in modern Russia. And then again, it’s your country and if you decide, as a nation, to exit the EU and kick some EU immigrants out of your country – fair enough.

        • Terry Field

          I do not hate immigrants per se.
          You came here with self declared bitterness. Take that away please, then you are welcome here.
          I do not hate Brussels. I regret the lack of democracy, but most European countries have almost no history of, or understanding of, democracy.
          I am perfectly well aware of the psychopathy of Russia, the putrid nature of the Putin thing, and the problems that Russia has in dealing with reality. Often not of its own making.
          I do not wish to remove EU immigrants. It is the Islamic lot we all have a massive problem with.

  • pp22pp

    The Cold War is over. You are a neocon-supporter. You are a greater threat to decency than Putin.

  • CO Jones

    Polish apples wouldn’t really capture my view; a case of vodka would be more like it.

    • Gryzelda Wrr

      Good choice. Dr. House said: ‘Russian vodka is OK if you need to clean the oven. For drinking, it must henceforth be Polish.’ 🙂

  • Sean Lamb

    “And in the meantime, if you want to show what you think of Putin, eat a Polish apple and then give one to a friend.”
    Personally Putin would be my least disliked world leader – admittedly this a very low bar.

    Poland, could you please try and develop good relations with your neighbor (or near neighbor) and stop trying to curry favor with neo-cons in Washington?

    • Mana

      Ok, so maybe try to have Russia as a neighbor, and then say it again. I mean Russia with Kaliningrad oblast where you have plenty of nuclear missiles, and soldiers ready to attack, or tell us when your neighbor will be attacked by them. I wish you hear saying those words if Putin would attack Ireland, send there own soldiers, and stir up Russian propaganda among local society. Then we are going to talk fellow.

      • Sean Lamb

        Actually in Ireland they have this neighbour called Great Britain that has persuaded a significant slice of country they would be better off belonging to them.

        Every time Russia has a had a bit of biffo with its near abroad, the other party has totally provoked it – cf Georgia. And as for Ukraine, Kiev has lost the moral right to govern the Eastern provinces and they sure as hell don’t seem to want to be governed by Kiev. So I am not sure how anyone thinks the East is not either break-away or be under de-facto military occupation for the next decade.

        • Mana

          Cut this Russian propaganda, pal. I know that you’re well paid lambs of russian origins. That disinformation does not work anymore. You just make Europe more united, and after all Europe as a federal country will show you who’s your daddy. There is nothing worse that russian rural, and primitive “country” with its bandits called government.

      • Sean Lamb

        Finland seems to rub along with Russia fine – why not try copying their example?

        • Mana

          Finland does not have a nuclear warheads close to borderline, Finland does not have its neighbor attacked by Russia, Finland believes that NATO spill own blood to protect them, Finland is ignoring when Russian jets crossing their airspace. Is that so good example? I don’t think so.

          • Sean Lamb

            Well they seem happy enough. If Poles want to hyperventilate about Russia thats up to them, just don’t expect anyone else to care

          • Mana

            Of course no one cares, that is why Putin has got sector-focused sanctions, plus 1350 British soldiers included 350 vehicles are in the way to Poland, and in the autumn will join them 1st cavalry division of United States will join them. Humm, or maybe should i mention that Obama is going to visit Tallinn next month? Then he will join the NATO summit in Wales where the main topic will be guess what… No one cares so much about Putin’s will. Especially Obama and Rasmussen, and that means no one. For America such behavior means disrespect, and if Poland or any member of NATO would be under attack, and others NATO members wouldn’t react, then the whole pact would be worth nothing, and it would mean that USA would loose their power. USA will never let it happen, they will do everything to drag down that russian bandit. Especially Obama and Rasmussen say clearly how it is going to be, so sure, spread your propaganda, and maybe finally someone finally is going to believe you. Wish you good luck:)

          • Sean Lamb

            Good Lord, is Obama really going to visit Tallinn?!??? OMG

            I wonder if he will stay in Swissotel or Hotel Telegraaf. I hear the buffet breakfast at the Telegraaf is a real deal maker.

            Since Putin was never going in infringe on Polish sovereignty in anyway that only difference the arrival of 1350 squaddies will make is an increase in venereal disease.

          • Mana

            It shows that it’s a real deal for Obama, and as a head of the only superpower on our planet i would say that it’s important. Oh, i bet you know much more about venereal disease spread by soldiers than about Putin’s thoughts.

          • Sean Lamb

            Like it not the British aren’t really much interested in Poles aside from a cheap source of labor that can be laid off and repatriated during economic downturns. Beyond that there is zero interest in your country, aside for thinking your politics something of a joke.

            Given Russia has absolutely no territory ambitions on Poland, the only thing that is stopping Russia and Poland having mutually beneficial cultural and economic ties is Polish xenophobia and a cultural cringe towards the West.

            Sure, the neocons see you as useful in terms of finding a reason to keep money pumping into the military-industrial complex – but these economic benefits all flow state-side. There is nothing in it for Poland. Far better to try the finish route.

          • Mana

            Haha, British, hahaha. You’re just an English, and i’m sure Russian speaking, that’s it. Probably imported from kingdom of sackcloth called Russia:) If we consider that for example Joseph Conrad was a Pole, the chef designer of Jaguar cars is Polish, or that one of the owners of Henri Lloyd company was Polish…etc then i wouldn’t call Poles as a cheap labors. I wish to mention that only about 20 percent earns national minimal wage. You should notice that mostly those who weren’t able to manage in own country went there, the weakest units, unlike Russians. Those really rich have money because they have stolen during the cruel privatization in the 90’s. At that time the whole legacy of Soviet Union was sold for peanuts. Of course those peanuts i can call easily bribes. Another one group is illegal immigrants, who went to Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, and through Baltic states to UK. That is the only one way to get out of that Russian hell hole. No, sorry, some of the prettier girls can find geezers with citizenship. You have dozens of websites where you can order one russian wife, you get one extra. So yes, even those min. wage Poles pay taxes in UK, however sometimes Polish immigrants ending up i funny places, like Patheon in Paris (vide Maria Curie-Skłodowska). How many Russians is buried there? If you’re talking about xenophobia, then you must be absolutely crazy, or dilettante. We like regular Russian, and our policy was friendly until Putin decided to attack our neighbor. That’s it. We have no cultural similarities. Your culture comes from Byzantium, and we were baptized by Roman Catholic bishop in 966. Since then Poland is called Poland, and that gave us identity. About 40 tribes decided to cooperate, and decided to take cultural heritage of the Roman Empire. Our language is different, and our religion, and that is the base of every culture. You can speak fluent English, but still you know that we have conquered you ourselves, so don’t teach us about our policy. Our policy will be against you as long as you’re aggressive.

          • Sean Lamb

            “Putin decided to attack our neighbor”
            Well the ideological part of Ukraine that has the problem with Putin has a direct link to those Ukrainians that killed a very large number of Poles 70 years ago. So I would have though true Poles would look at them with a somewhat jaundiced eye.

  • GenJackRipper

    Stop being a neocon sheep.
    It’s sad to see the polish and the ukrainians having such cimplex that they always seek a big power to take care of them.
    Funny how the czech and the hungarians seem to do fine without it, being able to distinguish the Soviet Union from Russia and saying no to the EU/NATO/IMF.

    Ukraine and Poland should try it aswell.

  • Nele Schindler

    Putin is the only leader these days worth the title, standing up against the bullying of an undemocratic EU and Islamic fundamentalism that erode our values.

    Sanctions against Russia under I don’t even know which pretext were idiotic, and although I feel for Greek peach farmers, I do hope that Putin stands strong on upholding these import bans.

    Feed your Polish apples to the EU lapdogs.

  • Wiktor

    I am astonished by the quality of the discussion here and some of the views expressed. Just shows how little some of the commentators below know about Russian political motives and how dangerous a neighbour (to Poland/Baltics AND Europe) it can be. Britain, safely on it’s little island, has no idea of what it’s like to share a border with a neo-imperialistic and hostile neighbour like her.

    Indeed, the mentality and political horizons of some the comments below are representative of ‘little Britain’ and ‘little-Brits’, people whose mental outlook is that of isolation and trying to re-invent the wheel of global politics – meanwhile, it’s so simple, just know where your enemies lie – Russia (military, energy stability), China (economy), fundamentalist Islamic ideology (terrorism) – and remember where you can seek strength (a common and united Europe). Just shut the hell up, pick up a Polish apple and remember Aleksander Litvinienko – is Russia really the kind of country you want to make friends with over Brussels? Pathetic (and arrogant) stupidity.

    • OneFlew

      Wiktor, I think you will find that many of the comments that upset you are from people who are on the Kremlin payroll. It’s the same on all the newspaper sites.

      • GenJackRipper

        Classic; don’t swallow the BBC/CNN lies and you’re a paied agent of the Kremlin.

        Funny, my Gazprom shares must have gotten lost in the mail.

  • Despeville

    Is this from a tourist’s memoir?

  • Richard de Lacy

    Incredible amount of Sikorski-esque snivelling from the anti-Russian conspiracy loons on here, many of whom, like Wiktor, below, admonishing Britons for not sharing this irrational cowardice. Please remember: this is a conservative publication, despite the limousine-liberal bloggers, so get used to it, stop your blubbering and grow a pair (not apples)

  • Gybb
