How to use polish in a sentence?

  1. Jaroslaw Janecki:

    We had expected a deterioration in sentiment (in Poland) due to a more adverse situation on financial markets and as a result of the cut in the Polish rating, these two factors for sure had an impact on the assessment of the situation by those who participated in the poll.

  2. Mariusz Kami?ski:

    Lukashenko wants to threaten us. We will not allow Read MoreIt to be another route of mass transfer of illegal immigrants to the EU. We will not allow the security of our citizens to be compromised. These activities are aimed at ensuring security on the Polish border, its integrity and the safety of citizens who live at the border.

  3. New York Times:

  4. Vladimir Norosov:

    We fought together, myself and my Polish brothers, how many people died fighting to liberate that country? What they are doing now is disgraceful.

  5. Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro:

    This will be a project that meets the expectations of Poles, who are blasphemed in the world, in Europe, even in Germany, that they are the Holocaust perpetrators, that in Poland there were Polish concentration camps, Polish gas chambers, enough with this lie. There has to be responsibility.
