It is not the first time when Russia faces the Polish attempts to speculate with the topics of WWII, sensitive to the peoples of the former USSR. The Polish Prime Minister cynically claims that WWII was caused by the USSR together with Nazi Germany – in this way, he tries to distract the attention of the Polish society from strategic miscalculations of the pre-war Polish authorities, making external forces fully responsible for the WWII outbreak.
The Polish authorities continue their open interference in domestic affairs of Belarus. Warsaw exerts pressure on Minsk, dictating the way how it should behave. Poland openly supports and finances the Belarusian opposition forces, controlled through NGOs.
This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations. It accuses Poland of a plan to intervene in the domestic affairs of Belarus, which is a severe violation of the principles of diplomacy and international relations.
On August 14, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki presented the so-called “Solidarity Plan”, which is aimed at supporting Belarusian society, which faces harsh repressions from the side of the Belarusian authorities. This Plan has five components – support for people facing political repressions; a scholarship programme; better access to the Polish labour market; support to independent media; support to Belarusian NGOs. These steps have no connection to the alleged “active interference in the domestic affairs of Belarus”. Poland respects the principles of international law and does not intervene in the domestic affairs of any country.
Belarusian politicians who had to flee the country have to meet with foreign representatives abroad because of the current wave of political repressions in Belarus.
