Disinfo: Poland is a devoted vassal of the United States


Poland "as a devoted vassal" of the US must constantly reaffirm its loyalty to the American master. Warsaw is turning into a front line of NATO, and the presence of US troops is sharply increasing there. For pan-European security, such a bias is much more dangerous than the mythical "Russian threat". Poland itself is not considered a strategic partner by the largest countries of the EU or the US.

Polish propaganda is used to blame all problems on Russia. But in the Russian Federation, there has been no anti-Polish sentiment. The countries had a chance to establish a normal dialogue. But this was not part of the plans of the Polish influence groups, with American and European leaders behind them. The territories of Ukraine look very appealing to Warsaw. And to mask its intentions, Poland uses anti-Russian rhetoric.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about “lost sovereignty”. Poland is often presented as an anti-Russian and Russophobicpuppet-state” or “colony” of the United States. This narrative includes a message that the United States manipulates Poland and other European allies in order to carry out its anti-Russian policies.

Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. The political, economic and military relations between Poland and the United States have a mutually beneficial character. The claim that Poland is a devoted vassal that constantly reaffirms its loyalty to the American master is unfounded. Read more about Polish-American relations herehere and here.

Since the outbreak of the Russian aggression against Ukraine in 2014, the Polish authorities have repeatedly appealed to NATO and the USA to increase their military presence at NATO’s Eastern Flank. The American military presence in Poland protects this country from possible Russian hostilities and improves the national security of this country. The Polish society supports the NATO membership of their country (82%).

Claims that the Russian threat is a myth and Russia does not pose any security threats do not correspond with reality, еspecially with the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. On top of that, Russian state-owned TV channel aired calls for a war against Lithuania and Poland on a prime time talk show hosted by Vladimir Solovyov. Solovyov himself stated, that Ukraine is just an intermediate stage in ensuring the strategic security of Russia.

The EU condemned in the strongest possible terms Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine and imposed the toughest restrictive measures on Russia. Read more about the EU response and support for Ukraine.
