The Polish ruling elites are pursuing an anti-Russian policy

Summary of Disinformation

The Polish leadership did not invite Russian President for events related to the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II. Since 2015, the Polish elites have been represented by a new party that consistently stands the anti-Russian line. The current demarches of Warsaw do not have any logic.


One of the recurring Pro-Kremlin narratives Elites vs. People, describing particularly Polish elites as Anti-Russian. Poland is often targeted by Russian propaganda, which portrays Poland as anti-Russian and aggressive toward Russia.

The fact that Warsaw did not invite the Russian leader to celebrations was explained by the Polish leadership: "Invitations have been sent to the EU, NATO, and Eastern Partnership members, but not to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. Invitations have been issued according to a contemporary, not a historical context."

Pro-Kremlin outlets often use WWII narratives, both to strengthen the myth of the Red Army, to accuse Poland of being an initiator of WWII, of history rewriting and of intention to destroy the world order.
