DISINFO: The American Embassy in Warsaw takes decisions on strategic issues instead of the Polish Government and President
In any normal country, the American Ambassador would have been urgently called to the MFA after making this type of a public statement [possible re-deployment of the US nuclear weapons from Germany to Poland]. In this situation, a rhetorical question arises – who is in power in Poland and who takes decisions on strategic issues? It is not the Government or President, but the American Embassy in Warsaw.
A common pro-Kremlin narrative on “lost sovereignty” - in the case of Poland, this country is often presented as a “puppet-state” of the United States, EU or Germany, which fully control the domestic and foreign policy of this country. Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. On May 15, Georgette Mosbacher, the American Ambassador to Poland, published her Tweet regarding the ongoing political discussion in Germany about the US nuclear weapons deployed in this country. According to the Ambassador, if Germany wants to reduce the presence of the US nuclear weapons on its territory, it is possible that Poland may be able to host these American weapons.
