Hello dear friends, once again Anna Sochina is with you. You may accuse me of a biased attitude towards Poland and the Baltic states. I often criticize them in my releases. Firstly, these republics often throw such performances that one cannot just walk by. And secondly, there is food for discussion in view of the events in Belorussia. Because no matter how much the local authorities assure that they do not encroach upon Belorussian sovereignty, the facts speak the opposite.
Paralytics Politics with Anna Sochina
I read the news recently: “The European MP for Poland Jacek Dariusz Wolski raised a most important issue at the extraordinary session on the situation in Belorussia: Let us pronounce ‘Tichanowska’ instead of ‘Tikhanovskaya’, let us pronounce it the Polish way.” “Because when foreigners say ‘Tikhanovskaya,’” he explains, “they pronounce the last name in a Russian way, and this way they recognize that the Republic of Belarus is in the sphere of Russia’s interests.” While it should, by the looks of it, be within Poland’s sphere of interests. If the West is moulding you as a leader of protests, you must become clay. If they say you’re not going to be Tikhanovskaya but Tichanowska, you will be. If they say you’re not going to be Sochina but Soczynski, you will be.
Clearly I wouldn’t have paid attention to this news had it not been for this linguistic screen concealing rather more serious intentions of Poland towards its neighbouring country. Here is, for instance, Tomasz Sommer, the Chief Editor of the ‘Najwyższy Czas’ weekly, writes on his Twitter:
“It is absolutely obvious that Grodno must, in case of Belarus breaking up, be taken by Poland. PiS (the ruling Law and Justice Party) knows this but is afraid to say so.”
Well, who cares what some editor in chief said somewhere, it’d seem. However, my friends, the voice of Tomasz Sommer is not alone. Many representatives of the Polish elite share his thoughts, only they don’t voice it. The Poles use other methods in order to advance their interests in Belorussia. Thus the Polish trade union conglomerate ‘Solidarność’, whose influence level arguably exceeds any parliamentary party, sent humanitarian aid to the Republic of Belarus, in the form of a few dozens tonnes of food, which could to be of use at the workplaces during strikes. Additionally, they, with the support from the Polish government, helped to create the Fund of Solidarity with Belarus, which has already collected 1,000,000 PLN to aid the protesters, which translates into over 700,000 Belorussian rubles, or over 20,000,000 Russian rubles which the Belorussian service of ‘Radio Freedom’ joyfully announces to us.
It’s not that much, it might seem. But ‘Solidarność’ is not the only one who pours money into the Republic of Belarus, and it is not just coming from Poland. For instance, the strike committee of ‘BelarusPotassium’ announced lately that the aid to the strikers from foreign funds and the EU will amount to 35,000,000 euros. The President of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, announces at the same time that the EU will allocate 53,000,000 euros to support Belorussia “in this difficult time.” Belorussia herself, on the other hand, was able to raise only 2,000,000 euros in aid of the striking workers. So it is not the Belorussians who will be determining their country’s policies in the near future I agree with the ‘Temnik’ Telegram channel:
“The governments of the Baltic states and Poland announce almost on the daily basis that they assign new sums for ‘the civil society development’, for ‘the independent media’, ‘training of the psychologists’, ‘first aid to the victims’, etc. The sums are modest – only a few dozens of hundreds of thousands euros, but if you put together these streamlets, they shape up into a considerable investment in the regime change scenario in the Republic of Belarus.”
Apart from the direct financial injections, for which the Belorussians will of course be made to pay later, Poland and Lithuania employ other methods. Lithuania in particular jumps up the highest out of their pants. It is there where at the moment the Belorussian female version of Juan Guaido is being moulded. There a ‘strong leader’ is being created out of a ‘weak woman’, as Tikhanovskaya described herself. However, in this case, I will agree with our colleague Armen Gasparyan. A strong leader must be charismatic, which is a quality I cannot discern no matter what when I look at Tikhanovskaya’s writing. Either way Lithuania accepted ‘Tichanowska’ within its borders. Lithuania also wrote a hurriedly long sanctions list against over 130 names of Belorussian officials. Lithuania is organizing mass rallies in support of the Belorussians on its territory. “The ‘Road of Freedom’ from Vilnius to the border with Belarus. Tens of thousands of people formed a living chain in Lithuania in order to support the Belorussian protest.”
RBK: “On the Sunday evening, almost 50 thousand people in Lithuania held their hands, having formed a living chain from Vilnius to the village of Miadininkai on the border with Belarus, in order to express their support for the Belorussians who are fighting for democratic reforms in their country. The length of the chain during the ‘Road to Freedom’ action was 32 km.”
The authors of the Telegram channel ‘Horde’ noted an interesting moment in connection to this 32 km long chain. I don’t do well in math, but they made the calculations:
“According to the estimates of the Sunday Party in Minsk, it gathered from 20,000-150,000 people, or if we average it, it was around 85,000 citizens. The Belorussian population is only 9 million. It is 3.5 times more than in Lithuania. So 50,000 sympathizers in Lithuania is equivalent to 150,000 in Belorussia. In other words, the Lithuanians sympathize with the Belorussians more than the Belorussians sympathize with themselves.”
I, by the way, never stop being amazed at the Poles’ and the Baltics’ mentality. They make an impression of a small lap dog that pounces at your legs, wants to bite but is too afraid to do it and so it just yaps. I’ll explain why I think so, having quoted the Ministry of Defense of Republic of Belarus:
“A probe consisting of eight air balloons carrying anti-state symbols was launched from the contiguous territory. Thanks to the actions of Mi-24 helicopter crews belonging to the duty air defense forces, the flight of the air balloons was stopped without weapon deployment.”
This news is actively ridiculed, including the mockery on behalf of some Russian authors. Wikipedia has already published an article titled “The Helium War”. Although I personally see nothing funny in this. Launching air balloons with the white-red-white symbol, which is totally anti-state but which very close in spirit to Poland and Lithuania, and to laugh when Belorussian helicopters take in the air: “Ha ha, the army is sent against our air balloons”, – can any one tell me what is so funny here? In reality, what’s laughable here are the imperial ambitions of Poland and Lithuania, who, in their dreams, are already dividing between themselves Grodno and other adjacent territories. And even if they are not yet dividing it, they demand to be included in the negotiations alongside Russia, Germany and France.
In this light, the interview with the former Foreign and Defense Minister of Poland Radosław Sikorski, is quite interesting and telling. Its headline is “The Crisis in Belarus Confined the Strength of Poland”. Nowhere in the article are arguments in support of this headline, but the principal thought developed by Sikorski sounds like this:
Radosław Sikorski: “Had Poland had normal diplomatic relations with Russia, she could have been the negotiator between Russia and the West about how Belarus could transform from a dictatorship into a democracy that does not infringe upon anyone’s interests. Poland should be in the centre of the situation but it is not so at the moment.”
It’s as if the neighbours on the floor have made a party but did not invite that one who always drills and makes noises after eleven. Poland is absent from the Normandy Four who negotiate about Donbass. It is also not awaited at the Minsk negotiations, although it would seem that nearest neighbour must be present. Evidently the Poles’ appetites for the tasty pieces of Belarus are apparent to Berlin, Paris and Brussels and the openly conservative policies of President Andrzej Duda doesn’t, let’s say, resonate in their hearts. Nevertheless this doesn’t mean that Poland and the Baltic states can be written off. As Sikorski himself incautiously notes in his interview when speaking of Lithuania’s role in the conflict, “sometimes small countries are used for scouting the battlefield.” That was a quote. And these small countries are being used by the United States, if to believe the former Defense and Foreign Minister of Poland.
It is on the Lithuanian territory where meetings between Tikhanovskaya and high ranking US representatives are being held at the moment. Strange is however that Sikorski does not draw parallels and does not understand that Poland, just like Lithuania, is being instigated, just like Lithuania, and is being used against Russia’s interests. But no, “Poland is the hegemon while Lithuania is just a mere pawn in the hands of the White House.” What do we have as a result? Cheap provocations like the one with air balloons. Large financial injections into Belorussia. Rallies in support of the protesters. Establishment of new foundations and non-governmental organizations within Belorussia. The support for such bloggers as ‘Nekhta’ or ‘Nexta’, I don’t know what is the correct pronunciation. I will quote Sikorski again:
Radosław Sikorski: “I am pleased that one of the principal Telegram bloggers ‘Nekhta’ came to Poland to study thanks the Erasmus program. The Belorussian House in Warsaw was founded in our time by the Polish Foreign Affairs Ministry and my personal idea was to create European Endowment for Democracy, and I know that it is also participating in the events in Belarus.”
Oh, European Endowment for Democracy is a topic for a separate conversation altogether. It this one is taking part, it is as good as lost. Someone may ask how do we differ from Poland or Lithuania. After all, Russia has been sponsoring Belorussia for years. Well, my friends, there is a huge difference between cooperation on the governmental level and pumping money and air balloons into the opposition. On the governmental level, Belorussia even holds joint marine exercises with Great Britain and it seems ok. But moulding a ‘Guaido’ on its territory and pumping money into the protesters and the strikers is not the official level, right? Besides answering the possible questions about Moscow’s role, I must remind that Russia and Belorussia are the Union State, and I don’t recall that Lukashenko made such unions with Lithuania or Poland. Goodbye.
Precisely why Putin said no one gets a inch of Belarus, and the Russian Military will defend its sovereignty against any one or any alliance of invaders.
The Poles will be burying their dead for months if they attempt anything.
They really need to examine closely what the Russian military has done in Syria.
They need to examine their own history as well. They aren’t thinking too clearly; that Jesuit in the Vatican has bewitched them.
NATO is using Poland and Lithuania to destabilize Belorussia and introduce regime change, bringing the country into NATO, so that NATO could place missiles right along the Russian border. Poland and Lithuania, on the other hand, are dreaming of incorporating Belorussian lands. A dangerous policy by all three, as all three are applying double standards, standards which were prohibited in the Balkans during the conflicts of the 1990’s.
“NATO is using Poland and Lithuania..”
Sacrificial lambs can appear useful to those who flail, and can be facilitated by others prone to martyrdom and/or desperation to get with the team, whether that is Mr. Skripal, Mr. Navalny, Lithuania or Poland.
The utility of “martyrs” are not restricted to the printing of T shirts.
A component part of the social relations refered to as the united states of america is that “their” populations are perceived as food sources and human shields by/for “their elites” schooled by Mr. Machiavelli that “A prince has no friends.”
In such a scenario NATO is perhaps too inchoate to be attractive, and it is more likely that direction would lie with the united states of america not restricted to the political geograpy construct lying between Canada in the North and Mexico in the South, since In god we trust is not restricted to bank notes.
Poland has desperately wanted to be accepted as part of the West since they embraced Roman Catholicism a little over a thousand years ago. They fall for flattering promises of no substance every time. The idiots in charge there today are the great grand children of the fools who gave credence to the promises made by Britain and France in 1939, before their country was invaded by Hitler and betrayed by the West. This was followed by an allied betrayal in the aftermath of the war, though they did accept the western lands in payment for cession of their own sovereignty. Obviously, they were hoodwinked by Prussia and the old Hapsburg empire as they were partitioned out of existence in not just one, but three successive seizures of sovereignty about which they could not do a damned thing basically because of internal strife. Always they fall for the Western con and then blame Russia. This formula is held as true as any verse from the Christian bible. Lithuania has simply been their long-associated straight man in this perennial comedy act. The ultimate pipe dream, at least for the Polish half of the act, is the resurrection of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth with a fascist strongman like Pilsudski in control, as if the EU will let them have their way on anything because (in their dreams) they took a bite out of Russia. Lukaschenko would seem like a choirboy if that dream ever came true. Many history books claim (who knows the truth?) that Poland was misled by an overly influential Jewish petti-nobility (anyone who owned land was purportedly a “nobel” back in the day and got to tack “ski” on to the end of their surname). That may still be true, though the “nobels” now live in and give the orders from Israel. The Polish goyim are basically their puppets, though they are told otherwise by the Catholic Church, whose prelates are unaffectionately known as the “church robbers” by those with the awareness exceeding an earthworm.
” This was followed by an allied betrayal in the aftermath of the war, though they did accept the western lands in payment for cession of their own sovereignty.”
Misrepresentation by ommission is regularly practiced.
Perhaps remembering the Government in Exile and Mr. Komorovsky initiating a “rising” on 1st August 1944 in illustration of
” and can be facilitated by others prone to martyrdom (for others) and/or desperation to get with the team” would prove illuminating?
The Polish Government in exile was emulating the Czech Goverment in exile including but not limited to Mr. Benes and Mr. Moravec re the assassination of Mr. Heydrich in June 1942 despite warnings of the “resistance” in Czechoslovakia as to probable outcomes.
Another commonality was the need to create myths to deny compolicity/responsibility as you do in
” Many history books claim (who knows the truth?) that Poland was misled by an overly influential Jewish petti-nobility (anyone who owned land was purportedly a “nobel” back in the day and got to tack “ski” on to the end of their surname). That may still be true, though the “nobels” now live in and give the orders from Israel. The Polish goyim are basically their puppets,…..”
in emulation of many others who hope that potential interlocutors don’t take representative democracy seriously.
Sorry but enough with the whining. It’s tiresome. Act and do something or shut it.
All this troubles and family-feuds could be avoided in a pan-slavic Union. There, a novel solution never tried before.
Many attempts but always failed. They cannot blame it on anyone but themselves.
Really appreciate this analysis.
Another “Venezuela-type” attempt at “change of government”.
After Syria, Beyrouth, Hong-Kong, now Belorussie, what else? What allows such coordinated effort? It must be a very high level financial organization with a heavy historical ideological cohesion. Maybe the Elders of Sion?
Don’t forget that Radosław Sikorski is the husband of the notorious ‘Russian eater’ Anne Applebaum (aka Anne Elizabeth Sikorska).
“Applebaum is a member of the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’. She is on the board of the ‘National Endowment for Democracy’ and ‘Renew Democracy Initiative’ (led by Garry Kasparov). She was a member of the ‘Institute for War and Peace Reporting’s International Board of Directors. She is a Senior Adjunct Fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) where she co-leads a major initiative aimed at countering Russian disinformation in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). She is on the editorial board for ‘The American Interest’ and the ‘Journal of Democracy'”.
CIA writ large.
Ms Apfelbaum must be so talented, though I have never understood at what. And she must never sleep, to attend all those sessions at all those august organizations she does duty for, but I understand vampires rarely do.
It is a telling measure, then, of her observational skills and perspicacity, that like most members of the list of organizations she belongs to, she does not notice the China in The South China Sea, or the more difficult, granted, concept of Iran [Persia] in the Gulf of Iran [Persia] nor, again, a puzzler its true, the “Russia” in Belorussia.
I guess one just can’t get good help in the ‘redraw-the-map-with-a-crayon’ profession these days, once the ‘affirmative action for Zionism’ quotas have filled them up with crap.
It seems that most of the current problems with the world could be fixed if the ‘right’ people simply sent the ‘wrong’ people a map of the world, and another simpler sketch, with two partitions, marked simply: US & not US all in crayon.
She wouldn’t see the ‘Russia’ in Belorussia, because according to Wikipedia “Her ancestors came to America from what is now Belarus”.
It might be a coincidence, but her name sounds very close to the real name of Grigory Zinoviev, the famous revolutionary and head of the Comintern, purged by Stalin for ‘Trotskism’ – Hirsch Apfelbaum.
“It might be a coincidence, but her name sounds very close to the real name of Grigory Zinoviev, the famous revolutionary and head of the Comintern, purged by Stalin for ‘Trotskism’ – Hirsch Apfelbaum.”
Jews have no country. They claim to have been kicked out of 109 countries – but they never ask themselves why this happened to them.
CFR is a circle of oligarchy ranked above CIA. CFR are people who say “jump!”, CIA are the people who bow and ask “how high, ma’am?”.
Search for “CFR media empire”. You will see a rather impressive graph. Anne Applebaum is marked #101 on it (BTW, maybe being a former editorial board member in Washington comPost or suchlike is an unofficial equivalent of clearance level? As in “this one can be trusted to control what the top ranked preachers say”).
Also, you may have seen attempts by fake opposition to spam it over with the usual “joosjoosjoos” thing — which shows true inconvenience, not cheap conceited outrages. The Media, obviously, is one of the top branches in a theocratic oligarchy — not being officially part of the government only means lack of formal accountability.
And you already listed typical connections to various task forces and “shell companies” in the rest of oligarchy.
Little reason to get hysterical about it. Najwyzszy Czas is a magazine of about 10k circulation, connected to a sort of a coalition party Unia Polityki Realnej that gets about 1% votes in general elections. Radek Sikorski is a known CIA asset and Atlanticist and that’s for whom he speaks. 99% of poles and 200k Ukrainians who are now permanent residents have little enthusiasm for joining Belarus and even less affect for Lithuania. There are more, I am sure, belarussians paid by Soros who would advocate for all kind of border adjustments… perhaps focus on them in the next rant.
Unsurprising. I suspect it was a clumsy attempt to seduce Poles toward EU.
By now lots of people in Eastern Europe have many good reasons to be less than enthusiastic about EU.
The Poles don’t bother to hide this, either. Including their government. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/crossroads-polish-pm-berates-eu-ahead-trip-european-parliament-2021-10-14/
So if the pro-EU factions try to double down and are opportunistic, it sounds about right.
I have no understanding of why those problems aren’t taken care of.It’s like someone doesn’t want to solve the problems.Close the border between Poland,Lithuania,and Belarus.And if you don’t close the border.Make it so anyone entering is checked.Confiscate the funds coming in from those states.And arrest the Belorussians that cooperate with them.And there are areas today in Poland that used to be inhabited by Belorussians.Let Poland know that in the event of war between Poland and Belarus,at Poland’s defeat those lands will be reclaimed.So they should immediately stop the propaganda about stealing land from Belarus.
Russia+Belarus don’t want to rock this boat too much, obviously.
The conditions are: Poland is mighty annoyed at EU for years now. It also happens to be the convenient land road to the rest of Eastern Europe.
The potential prize: in the current political weather they could be convinced to turn away from troublesome and diseased EU altogether. Possibly even found the new Warsaw Pact Lite. At least, if treated with more respect than in the good old times of «Chicken ain’t bird, Poland ain’t abroad».
The pro-EU side also understands this. Which is why they tried to sell Poles this air castle in the first place, of course.
So the Belarus rouble is 2.5 times stronger than the Russian one? Rather odd for what we’ve repeatedly been informed is a basket case that must be rescued by being “integrated” (annexed) by Russia, isn’t it? Or perhaps the reports of Belarusian basket caseism have been exaggerated to make the case for annexation?
I can’t ever read “PiS” as a party name without a mental giggle. I’m either immature or the name absolutely represents today’s Poland. Rest in PiS, Poland.
So when is Tikhanovskaya going to change her name to Tichanowska as per orders?
That should be 28.5 times stronger, not 2.5. Sorry for the typographical error.
BP: I am told Belaz just won a big India contract. Have you heard? My impression is that Belarus is doing well compared to Ukraine and adjoining Russia. Maybe Luka will find a way to siphon all that subversive western money into useful economic projects.
28 is the exchange rate between the Belarusian rouble and the Russian rouble. Only 10 days ago it was at 30. Fyi- in currency terms that’s a big devaluation.
The Russian rouble has taken a hit with this geopolitical crisis on her doorstep. Against the Euro, the Belarusian rouble is at a record low.
Belarus is facing sanctions and strikes and could even be in a currency crisis with bank runs if the situation does not stabilise. Many companies will be closing shop.
Russia will have to bail out Belarus. Russia already owns a large part of Belarusian sovereign debt together with various funds (eg Eurasion Fund for Stability and Development). It will be expensive but it will also further strengthen the bond between the two countries.
The good guys are always demonized by the oligarchs’ media (including Russia’s), Biswa. Not unlike (once) liberated East Germany, which was (and still is) heavily demonized by the Nazis, Belarus is anything but a basket case.
Did you read Sergey Glazyev’s macroeconomic analysis “Belarusian Choice” at Stalker Zone? I think Sergey Glazyev has a lot more credibility than media which are spinning on behalf of the oligarchy.
Part of me is kinda wishing Russia would introduce a 50-ruble coin to either replace the 50-ruble note or circulate alongside it, and possibly an intermediate denomination between the 10 and 50. That way, if Belarus were to reunite with Russia, nobody from the former would have to feel ripped off with the loss of the Belarusian 2-ruble coin (currently at ₽56).
The other part of me would rather wait until enough Russians believe the situation is bad enough to warrant the ₽50 coin’s introduction. The OECD site claims that as of 2019, ₽25.70 in Russia has as much purchasing power as one dollar in the US, so it does not look as bad as what the exchange rate implies.
Poland is, despite its right wing rhetoric, a weak state full of inane noise and waffle. Vassals of the EU I’d like to see them try take a bite of Belarus, the Russians (via the Belarus military) would take their ass and hand it politely on a plate to the EU snowflakes in Brussels. Nobody cares about the tri states, most people in Europe don’t even know where they are! Just another bunch of debt slaves to the IMF and WB doing their masters bidding for crumbs on the table and a life time of eternal serfdom. All will be settled in time with this pack of hyenas.
”Poland is, despite its right wing rhetoric, a weak state full of inane noise and waffle.”
Correct. The rock-solid status of the Poles as the world’s most underrated Latin Christians is getting on their nerves, LOL.
”Vassals of the EU I’d like to see them try take a bite of Belarus, the Russians (via the Belarus military) would take their ass and hand it politely on a plate to the EU snowflakes in Brussels.”
And then be shocked and traumatized by the snowflakes’ noticeable indifference to the Poles’ latest sacrifice for the benefit of Western civilization. Hopefully, Poland will have a sizeable Muslim minority as her due reward for services rendered to the Empire.
It would be an irony for sure, and so likely not just Polish-Lithuanian Tatars either like Charles Bronson (whose family in Philadelphia in the US spoke Russian in their house until he was about 13).
Tikhanovskaya, von der Leyen, Merkel, Kramp-Karrenbauer — it’s plain to see the strident feminism pertaining to the Euro-trash these days. Will they send in the horrid Pussy Riot clowns by air balloon to Belarus? Or the corpse of Navalny after they are finished with him?
Putin and Lukashenko will have very little problems dealing with these truly imbecilic stunts. Gównopolska and tiny insect Lithuania are disposable rubbish at the very disposal of the EU which itself is going down the toilet as we speak. Russia and Belarus are aligned with China, so no doom and gloom from me. Again: Stupid theatrics + the drooling, panting, and shouting by the MSM just don’t impress me.
It may appear to be wrong and counter intuitive to some, but in my opinion the West has always been a kind of matriarchy since it’s inception around 1000 AD, and intellectually and spiritually led by more or less men of an effeminate bent for the most part. This has gradually led to the farce we see out in the open today.
Belarus making other arrangements than trading through Baltic ports….selling electricity instead to Russia….etc
High young adult emoyment in Lithuania will increase as more emigrate……
i think most of the commenters are still viewing the belarus upset through the windshield when imo the correct view is through the rear view mirror as the coup plotters slowly shrink in size and stature as the car travels forward.
coups of this nature are always unstable and …..very time sensitive…. for those attempting to replace the government. guaido in venzuela is a perfect example…… like fresh that must eaten fish promptly lest it begin to smell badly.
Tomasz Sommer, the Chief Editor of the ‘Najwyższy Czas’ weekly, writes on his Twitter:
“It is absolutely obvious that Grodno must, in case of Belarus breaking up, be taken by Poland.
– So try to take it and see what happens then…
Russia, Germany, and Belarus should finally carve up Gównopolska. That would solve a whole host of issues.
Is the recent “poisoning of the Russian dissident” kept in a German hospital a retaliation for president Putin”s smart move in Belarus?
Yes it is. As amarynth succinctly put it in the Café:
And they even managed to get hold of the ’Novichok’ thingy. Smart people (not).
it is astonishing that the ”weapons grade novichok” is so effective that it
hardly ever is lethal… russia must be useless at bioweapons. perhaps their
covid 19 vaccine will be so effective that nobody in the west will dare to use it
I used to live in Tomsk, you see. And still remember how returning to the old town after visiting relatives was quite rough on me sometimes. So, there are two obvious possibilities:
A. Sinister KGB had downright magical level of prescience. Upon divining certain pre-teen’s distant future as an insolent neo-reactionary shitposter, the bastards poisoned me.
B. Even before the infamous incident with river of fire flowing down a ravine (can’t remember the year, but mess was on TV all over Russia, seriously) downwind of the petrochemical factory in Tomsk was not a very healthy place to be… and it still isn’t.
So you can see my dilemma: hubris suggests one answer, sanity another. What to choose, what to choose…
Well, we know what Navalny chose.
I mean, it’s not like they would nevar evar… just ask Voinovich (the author of Chonkin books and that space launch song). And the cadres probably are not any better now. But what’s the point? This dude isn’t massively popular and almost historical character, or something. Just another mild nuisance. While the attitudes on the average moved a lot toward nobody giving a damn.
So this dude listened to hubris on this occasion, that’s all. The subsequent development and promotion of his spooky story by whichever yellow press preachers got their grubby paws on it? This was simple opportunism.
Haha, just as I was wondering what the German Deep State and its Pindo rulers would make of ’Putin’s poisoning of Navalny’, the answer came instantly: Nord Stream-2 — why didn’t I see it coming??
Navalny Novichok Nordstream
A map showing Poland’s possible territorial ambitions
This article is very misleading.
It is indeed true that Tomasz Sommer wrote what you say on Twitter.
It is also true that most people who commented below his statement commented that he is an delusional idiot. I am unsure where did you get the whole narrative?
Your piece seems to be indeed very biased as you admired at the very beginning of your article. As your wrote, EU offer over 100 times more money to Belarus than Poland but somehow it is Poland that tries to split Belarus?Come on now. Surely you can appreciate that Poland will be affected by the events on Belarus (friendly “help” from Russia in Ukraine and resulting economic issues displaced about 1.3-2 million of people from Ukraine to Poland’s at a peak time) so some humanitarian help sent to Belarus people surely could be understood?
Hmm, Poles are being fed the glorious moments of their history starting with 1600’s when Russian Tsarstwo was was and Polish Hussars seemed unbeatable. I might find this Russian video, which talked about Poles actually getting to Moskva, Russian had nothing to counter Polish Hussars, this fact is also not talked about as it’s not one of Russia’s finest moments, just like 1920, when Piłsudski forced Lenin to surrender the lands we are talking about. Also, Poles keep reading Pan Tadeusz (Napoleon times), conveniently stops before Napoleon gets destroyed by Russians, and Polish Legions run away to America.
What never ceases to puzzle me is the fact that Jagiełło, Russian prince of Litwa surrendered his advantageous position when he married Polish Jadwiga, barely of age of 12 and became king of Polsko Litewska Unia (Polish-Lithuanian Union) and accepted position of a lesser partner. Particularly that she died shortly after at child birth.
I am sorry I am not doing any propaganda here:
КТО ТАКИЕ ПОЛЬСКИЕ КРЫЛАТЫЕ ГУСАРЫ, ОТКУДА ОНИ ВЗЯЛИСЬ | ТАКТИКА ВЕДЕНИЯ БОЯ КРЫЛАТЫМИ ГУСАРАМИ
Polish video (Husaria – Postrach Europy. Brief history of their main battles):
One more, this will explain why Poles do what they do, they think they can repeat this:
HUSARIA – FAKTY NIE MITY [DUMA NARODOWA]
” Polish Legions run away to America.”
Not all legionairres run away to America, but perhaps a more illuminating portal to enter would be “What happened when they came back?”.
The includes but is not limited to the minority policies of the Second Polish Republic (1919 – 1939) and legionairrs role within it despite agreements under the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
This led to inter-ethnic civil wars between 1919 to 1947/1954 according to location, in Belarus,Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine.
In the period between 1919 and 1922, this facilitated the creation of Freikorp, the change of emphasis of the NSDAP from 1919 onwards, and the creation of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (whose initial focus was anti-Polish) as an arm of OUN, all with the support of “White Russian” emigres and Britain, which in some degree facilitated “The Second World War”.
After 1944 all organisations named above including former executives of the NSDAP “enjoying” the continuing support of initially the “United Kingdom” and “The United States of America”.
The concept of “elites” that others are food sources and human shields has been longstanding.
Olya (Ola?), just look at Kościuszko’s and Pułaski’s monuments in America. They are America’s heroes. After the defeat of Napoleon, they had no choice but run as far as they could. Unfortunately the same happened with Germans and Ukrainian UPA, all lived happily ever after in the “Land of the Free”, South America and British Colonies. To end, you can never say “all” because some stay and face what coming to them. Also, this always happens as a result of any conflict, the losers run.
In lateral processes there is no end, although building monuments is an attempt to posit an end of the integration of cadavers through statues into myth.
“as a result of any conflict, the losers run.”
My experience suggests that “losers” generally die and are often left to rot in their own faeces and urine , then others attempt to render them into myth through monuments wrapped in cloaks of dulce-et-decorum-est-pro-patria-moreness, which become subject to interpretation like the black monument/wall in Washington, the tragedy in which some interpret as circa 58,000 was/is not enough.
“The concept of “elites” that others are food sources and human shields has been longstanding.”
Another Russian justification often mentioned for (potentially) abandoning the INF treaty is the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) missile-defense system with its planned sites in Poland (under construction) and Romania (operational). Russia claims that the EPAA is part of a global US missile-defense architecture designed to undermine Russia s strategic deterrent. However, the EPAA is designed against intermediaterange ballistic missiles and currently has no capability to defend against cruise missiles. Most importantly, in its currently planned form, the SM-3 Block IIA interceptors at the Polish and Romanian Aegis Ashore sites (24 each) are not fast enough to intercept Russian ICBMs that are simply flying too high. Furthermore, Russia is in the process of modernizing its strategic nuclear forces, in the framework of which it plans five new types of land- or sea-based missiles with advanced penetration techniques, leaving the EPAA, even if further advanced than currently planned, little chance to intercept these weapons.
That, uh, may be a stretch.
But also: is Poland ready to instead take back Western Ukraine… and then Lithuania? Hmm.
Most likely it could be done. Unfortunately, the Kremlins seem to still think in USSR “necro-patriotic” terms, thus very unlikely to actually pull something like this.
