DISINFO: Poland accepts American humiliation in order to fight the “Russian imperialism”


Recently, Joe Biden sent additional two thousand soldiers to Poland. What is the legitimacy of “inviting” a foreign army to Poland – it was Biden who decided about sending the soldiers, while the Polish authorities did not make such a request. Unfortunately, this situation is another disgrace, which Poland created for itself after giving away its national sovereignty into the hands of the overseas rulers. The US does not even care about formalities. The fact of being a NATO member does not imply that your "ally" will have a right to manage your territory.

The current Polish government reduced its country to a footstool, accepting all humiliation in the name of fighting the “Russian imperialism”.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about “lost sovereignty”. Poland is often presented as a “puppet-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.

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%).

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 the Polish political elites are “subjected to the USA as their sovereign” is unfounded. Read more about Polish-American relations here and here.
