DISINFO: Polish authorities turned their country into the vanguard of the American imperialism


The Law and Justice Party used many schemes in order to come to power – among others, Russophobia and servility towards the USA. This party accepts the subordinate position of Poland and the fact that this country was turned into the vanguard of the American imperialism. The Polish decision-makers understand that the only way to establish a lasting alliance with the USA is to provide it with real benefits. The problem here is the fact that this process is very expensive for Poland. In the nearest time, there will be no changes in the Polish-American relations – the US knows how to count money and the Polish authorities are willing to spend it to buy the favour of the empire.


This message is a part of the Kremlin’s widespread narrative about Russophobic US-controlled Poland. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the political elites of Poland of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies. Within this narrative, the “Russophobic” policies of Poland are often explained by the claim that the United States fully controls the domestic and foreign policy of this country (presenting Poland as an American “puppet-state” or a “banana republic”).

The Polish authorities do not promote Russophobia or any type of “American Imperialism”.Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. The political, economic and military relations between Poland and the United States have a mutually beneficial character.

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.
