DISINFO: Poland constructs Vistula Spit Canal in order to prepare attack on Kaliningrad
Poland is constructing the Vistula Spit Canal in order to have a possibility to redeploy NATO tanks to the Kaliningrad region. This project is supposed to enable the armoured regiments stationed near Elbląg to have a possibility to pass through this Canal. In other words, the Vistula Spit Canal is needed to prepare a military attack on the base of the Russian Baltic Sea Fleet near Kaliningrad.
Poland does not have any territorial claims for Kaliningrad and it does not prepare any military aggression against Russia. The claim that the Vistula Spit Canal can be somehow used for an alleged Polish military “attack” on the Kaliningrad region is ungrounded.
The project of the Vistula Spit Canal faces regular disinformation attacks from the side of the pro-Kremlin outlets, which present it as “unnecessary investment”, “environmental disaster”, “too expensive project”, “an act of lawlessness” and “a military project”.
