DISINFO: Poland and Ukraine have a “slave syndrome” towards Russia, trying to harm their former Master
Andrzej Duda and Volodymyr Zelensky signed a joint declaration condemning the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation, appealing to stop the “illegal occupation” of Crimea and aggression in Donbas. All these actions are realized with an anti-Russian “edge”, in order to hit Russia. Unfortunately, such actions come from a “slave syndrome” spread among the Russophobic communities of these countries. This XIX-century “slave syndrome” pushes these people to hit their former Master and to do everything to hurt him. It does not matter whether such actions will bring them any results – the only thing that matters is to hit the former Master. It is difficult to fight with this process – probably, we should simply wait for the new generations, which will not have this hatred and aggression.
This message is a part of the Kremlin's widespread narrative about Russophobic Poland and Ukraine. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the political elites of Poland and Ukraine of implementation of anti-Russian policies because of their Russophobia. This claim has a clearly manipulative character. The main current Russia-related concerns of Poland and Ukraine are a result of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Russia's armed military aggression in Ukraine. The Polish government shows its full support to solving the Russia-Ukraine conflict and complete restoration of territorial integrity of Ukraine. On October 12, during the visit of President Andrzej Duda to Ukraine, two Presidents signed a joint declaration, appealing to Russia to end the illegal occupation of Crimea and the ongoing aggression in Donbas. See other examples of similar messages claiming that constant intimidation with Russia is used to make Poland economically dependent on the USA, the Polish authorities created an insane hysteria of intimidation with Russia, used for the needs of domestic politics and the national security strategy of Poland is a manifestation of traditional Russophobia of the Polish authorities.
