The term “war on monuments” is permanently present in the rhetoric of the ruling party. If we are talking about a war, it was the Government of the Law and Justice Party, which has declared it against the places of memory, historical truth and the honour of about 600,000 Red Army soldiers fallen on the territory of Poland.
The comments of Żaryn [Press Secretary of the Minister for Special Services Coordination] show that he and people like him have no interest in any kind of political discussion between Warsaw and Moscow. The problem is much deeper – these people simply hate Russia, the Russians and everything that is Russian. It is classical xenophobia and dehumanization of a specific group of people because of their nationality. In many countries, such statements are punished as they incite interethnic conflicts. In Poland, they close their eyes at such cases if they are aimed against the Russians.
This message is a part of the Kremlin's widespread narrative about Russophobic Poland. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the political elites of Poland of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies.
The Polish authorities do not “hate Russia, the Russians and everything that is Russian” – also, they do not "dehumanize" the Russians as an ethnic group. This claim has a clearly manipulative and propagandist character.
The main current Russia-related concerns of Poland are a result of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Russia's armed military aggression in Ukraine. The Polish government shows its full support to solving the Russia-Ukraine conflict and complete restoration of territorial integrity of Ukraine.
See other examples of similar messages claiming that constant intimidation with Russia is used to make Poland economically dependent on the USA, the Polish authorities created an insane hysteria of intimidation with Russia, used for the needs of domestic politics and the national security strategy of Poland is a manifestation of traditional Russophobia of the Polish authorities.
This claim appeared in the same article as the claim that the Polish Government announce war against historical truth, places of memory and honour of the Red Army.
