Disinfo: Polish media promote the idea that the Russians are not people, but the “agents of the Kremlin”


Poland continues to discriminate against people for their opinions and beliefs if they are different from the position of the Polish Government. No one in Warsaw thinks about the persecution of persons, who are calling for ethnic hatred towards the Russians. The Polish authorities do not try to compensate the damage to the Russians, who were humiliated by the Polish state services only because of their citizenship. There are no legal procedures against the Polish media, which portrayed the Russians in a way similar to the presentation of the Jews by the Nazi “Völkischer Beobachter” in the Third Reich.

The leading Polish media, both pro-Governmental and pro-Opposition, promote the following message: They [Russians] are not people, but the “agents of the Kremlin”.


This message is a part of the Kremlin's widespread narrative about Russophobic Poland. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the political elites of Poland of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies.

The situation around Leonid Sviridov (a Russian journalist working in Poland before 2014) should not be considered as evidence for any “systemic discrimination of the Russian citizens in Poland”. The Polish special services decided to expel Sviridov to Russia in October 2014 because he was suspected of espionage in favour of the Russian special services.
