“Today Poland is suffering heavy rainfall again. Poles are pious people, so I’m appealing to their religiousness: this is God’s punishment for mocking the ideas of communism.”
—Valery Rashkin, a deputy in Russia’s State Duma, during a demonstration in front of the Polish embassy in Moscow protesting against a ban introduced in Poland on propagating communist symbols

”Well, do you think I’ll manage to have five children by the [June 20] elections?”
—Jarosław Kaczyński, presidential candidate from the opposition Law and Justice party, who is single, when asked about his reaction to the family-values message of his main rival, Bronisław Komorowski from the Civic Platform (PO)

“They ask me why I always kiss a woman’s hand [as a greeting]; I reply that you need to start with something.”
—Bronisław Komorowski at a meeting with students during his election campaign

“Someone guilty of genocide should not be commemorated, not for any reason. Soon, someone might erect a monument to Adolf Hitler as an animal lover, because he had a German shepherd.”
—Krzysztof Lisek, a European Parliament deputy from the PO, who wrote a letter of protest against a monument to Stalin being erected in Bedford, Virginia, United States by the local National D-Day Memorial foundation, which focuses on the history of World War II
