Siberia is a very significant region

Sir -- I write further to ongoing correspondence between your readers and Mr Rybarczyk of Newsweek Polska who, having assured us that he was not being racist in his views on the Irish, then went on to accuse the latter of being racist. By subsequently asking us do we think Warsaw is Siberia under martial law, he chooses to expose his own racist views by his slander of the people of that part of the Russian Federation. Mr Rybarczyk may not be aware that Siberia as a region is many times more significant in terms of wealth, ecology and culture than all of Poland.

He should choose his words more carefully -- digging in quicksand is never productive.

David O'Brien,
