Poland’s opposition party, Civic Platform, has asked the president to end what it has described as a “festival of nonsense” led by Polish defence minister Antoni Macierewicz.

Former defence minister Tomasz Siemoniak said at a press conference on Thursday that “Poland cannot be held hostage to Macierewicz’s obsession.”

Siemoniak referred to claims by Macierewicz that the 2010 Smolensk disaster, which killed then president Lech Kaczyński, was the result of sabotage. Last weekend, Macierewicz allegedly lashed out at the United States, saying that a nation that was only built in the 18th century, should not tell Poland about democracy.

Siemoniak stated that for several days “we have been confronted with a festival of nonsense delivered by Macierewicz”. – It was about an act of terrorism, it was about democracy in the United States, it was about electromagnetic weapons, and yesterday at the defence committee’s session we were confronted by the next wave of this nonsense, – Siemoniak said.
