Polish President Andrzej Duda called for a "process of decolonization" of Russia. He hinted that ethnic minorities should break away from Moscow's rule and form their own states.

Speaking at the "Peace for Ukraine" conference in Switzerland yesterday, Duda described Russia as a "prison of nations".

"Almost 200 ethnic groups live in that country, which became residents of Russia as a result of the methods used in Ukraine today," the Polish leader claimed.

- Russia remains the largest colonial empire in the world, which, unlike the European powers, never went through a process of decolonization and was never able to deal with the demons of its past. As a member of the international community, we finally have to say – there is no room for colonialism in the modern world, Duda said, Russian media reported.
