Poland is the puppet government of the US

Summary

Polish politicians are American Trojan horses in Europe. It is a puppet government. Statement of President Duda in Washington is another example that he, his group, his political party is ready to do anything to fulfil America’s plans. Words of Polish President were essentially an oath to the American flag.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe and Polish-US relations.

The disinformation message - like many others - appeared after the meeting between President of Poland Andrzej Duda and US President Donald Trump and the signing of an agreement which will increase the number of US rotational military forces of Poland. The United States and Poland are NATO allies. Poland is a sovereign state, which determines its security and defence policy.

In his statement President of Poland emphasised Polish-American cooperation. He did not pledge an oath to the American flag. Read the full statement here.

Narrative about Poland being a 'vassal' of the US is one of the most common, recurring messages of pro-Kremlin outlets. Other countries are often claimed to be the American 'vassal', too, without any evidence. See further examples here

France and Germany do nothing to enforce respect of the Minsk agreements by Ukraine

France and Germany are the guarantors of the Minsk agreements and they have never put any pressure on Kyiv in order to force them to respect the agreements. We are still waiting for prisoner exchanges, we are still waiting for a general amnesty, we are still waiting for the autonomy status of the Donbas. For four years, France has done nothing.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Minsk agreements, portraying Ukraine as a primary violator of the cease-fire.

In March 2015, the European Council linked the duration of EU sanctions to Russia to the complete implementation of the Minsk agreements, acknowledging Russia's responsibility to uphold the Agreements.

Poland is the ”Trojan horse” of the US

Impartial observers would all point out that the role of a “Trojan horse” that Poland was supposed to play in Washington’s previous designs has now been replaced by the role of a battering ram that must clear the way for the advancement of American special interests across Europe.

The Polish media source Interia (…) states that we’re witnessing the gradual vassalization of Warsaw which has become incapable to pursue its own independent foreign policy any longer. 

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, without any evidence. There are no articles on the Polish news site Interia which use the word ''vassalisation'' in the given context.

The disinformation message - like many others - appeared after the meeting between President of Poland Andrzej Duda and US President Donald Trump and the signing of an agreement which will increase the number of US rotational military forces of Poland. The United States and Poland are NATO allies. Poland is a sovereign state, which determines its security and defence policy.

Poland has been a vocal opponent of the European Union, as commanded by the US

Poland has been a vocal opponent of both the European Union and Russian authorities, while the latter are not being described in any other terms than an “imminent threat from the east.” Their overseas masters whom Warsaw relies on to decide its geopolitical policies won’t prevent Poland from taking reckless steps upon the European stage, as those go in line with their “hardline policies”.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about  the US presence in Europe and Polish-US relations.

Polish people are among the biggest supporters of the EU in all member states. Polish government has been pointing out the need to reform the European Union - but it is not opposing the EU as such.
