A combination of systemic crisis and the coronavirus epidemic dealt a blow to the West’s mythical unity. Western countries refuse to help each other by sending medical equipment or providing financial assistance. The US organised a military operation to export half a million of coronavirus tests from Italy, despite the deficit Italy is facing. The West is sinking in the Middle Ages, where everyone is for himself. The longer the epidemic stays, the further back in time the West will be submerged. The only positive aspect is that the combination of a global systemic crisis, low hydrocarbon prices, and the coronavirus pandemic may replace a new world war by moving away unsustainable political entities.
Poland did not let Russian aircraft carrying aid to Italy pass through its airspace. This is meanness at the highest level of the state. Moreover, the help was for an ally of Poland in the EU and NATO. From now on, Russia should not meet Poland half-way, on any issue. After this disgustful act of Warsaw, Brussels didn’t react because Washington controls the Russophobic foreign policy of the EU and the fact that Italians can perish cannot allow any exception to this position.
A recurring narrative that Poland acts in a vulgar and ignoble way against Russia and that the EU is a puppet of the United States. Nothing proves that such a decision was made by Poland except the speculations of a Russian politician. The Polish minister of defence stated that no demand to enter the Polish airspace was made from the Russian side. The spokesperson for the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency, Pawel Lukaszewicz also said that his agency had not received any flight plan from Russia and pretending Poland refuses access to its airspace is a lie. Furthermore, the Russian minister of defence itself doesn't support the allegations that Poland would have denied access to its planes and the original tweet of the Russian politician who started this emotional story against Poland was removed.
