Poland's entire policy towards Russia is based entirely on US support

Summary of Disinformation

Polish policy towards Russia is entirely based on the support of the United States.

Disproof

The article by Sputnik falsely suggests that every decision Poland makes in its foreign policy depends on the US. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative, claiming that the United States fully control the foreign policy of Poland. See other examples of this message here, here and here.

Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies - moreover, being a member of NATO and the EU, Poland is able to impact the formation of common foreign policies of these unions. See other examples of disinformation about Polish-American relations here.
