Former Polish dissident Adam Michnik likened Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions regarding Ukraine to Adolf Hitler's annexation of the German-speaking part of Czechoslovakia in 1938. The veteran of Poland's anticommunist opposition told RFE/RL's Aleksei Dzikavitski in Warsaw that Europe should find ways to "stop Putin" despite potential economic costs. Michnik said he wished for Ukraine to follow Poland's footsteps and take a "path to democracy, market, and Europe." (RFE/RL's Russian Service)
