Since Poland and the Baltic states are unable to come up with anything but destructive acts in the post-Soviet space, the main Western countries use the services of these states only when they need these destructive actions. In crisis situations, Poland and the Baltic states are carefully pushed aside and the West solves the problem on its own.
This situation always takes place in the case of relations with Russia. Eastern Europe has reconciled with the fact that the leaders of the USA, Germany and France communicate with Putin bypassing them – they do not ask their allies what they think about the dialogue with the Kremlin. However, the talks with Lukashenka behind the backs of Eastern European NATO members is a particular humiliation.
