Donald Trump has to shape his policies taking into consideration the position of various domestic power groups, which disfavour him. If Trump was free of their influence, the current international situation would look completely different. Without his own strong political camp, in some situations, Trump is forced to “give a smile” to the so-called “deep state”, which forms the core of American politics. Trump’s policy towards Poland is one of the elements, which is supposed to satisfy the “deep state”.
Warsaw does not carry out any type of policy towards its Eastern neighbours as all of the Polish foreign actions have turned into an instrument used to weaken the Russian positions in the post-Soviet region. For example, the Polish policy towards Ukraine has only one priority – to keep this country in the orbit of the anti-Russian states. Poland’s Eastern policy is formed by the actions dictated by the interests of the United States.
A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the United States fully controls the foreign policy of Poland. See other examples of this message claiming that Polish policy towards Ukraine is shaped by the Americans, the US keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian leash, and Poland is a Trojan Horse of the United States.
The statement that the United States controls the European and Polish elites is a conspiracy theory. Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies.
Poland carries out active foreign policy towards its Eastern neighbours – the Polish government underlines the importance of implementation of the pro-active Eastern policy. This policy is based on the promotion of key Polish interests in this region – strengthening of independence and security of the Polish Eastern neighbours, support for pro-European and transatlantic trends in the region and support for reforms in the countries of the post-Soviet region. Regarding Ukraine, the Polish government has repeatedly shown its full support to solving the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the complete restoration of territorial integrity of Ukraine.
