Disinfo: Poland is the US Trojan horse in the European Union

Summary

Poland has a rather important role in the EU. Not in the economy, but rather in purely political and military-political sphere since Poland is the US Trojan horse in the European Union. The Polish authorities say what the American prompter writes, or rather the American scriptwriters. Poland is the unsinkable bridgehead of the United States in Europe.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe, and “lost sovereignty”. Poland is often presented as a “puppet-state” of the United States by the pro-Kremlin media.

Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. Read more about the Poland- US relations.

See other examples of this message claiming that Polish policy towards Ukraine is shaped by the Americans, that the US keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian leash, and Poland is a Trojan Horse of the United States, or that Poland is not a sovereign state, that Poland was obliged to defend the interests of the United States in Eastern and Central Europe.

Lithuania and Poland are preparing colour revolutions in the western regions of Belarus

Lithuania and Poland have been preparing colour revolutions in the western regions of Belarus for 30 years now.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions.The pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests allegedly incited and funded by Western states around the world, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others.

Poland fully supports the independence and territorial integrity of Belarus, it does not have any territorial claims against its neighbours and it rejects any “imperial” ambitions towards other countries.

Organisations funded by George Soros organise seminars on how to destroy Russia

Organisations funded by George Soros organise seminars in Prague, the Baltic States and even in Armenia, on how to destroy Russia.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narratives about the billionaire and the philanthropist George Soros.

Similar unfounded narratives make claims that Soros’ offices around the world are tools of colour revolutions and that the prime minister of Armenia is destroying country's statehood in line with Soros programme.
