President Andrzej Duda would not be himself if he did not mention the phobias haunting his political force. Once again, he claims that Russia poses a threat and its policies have “imperial” character.
President Duda presented as “success” the presence of foreign armed forces on the territory of Poland. He is proud of the fact that he has brought to Poland the real danger of turning it in a potential front-line country.
President Duda dreams about an illusionary integration within the Three Seas Initiative. These dreams are supposed to satisfy certain Polish complexes – in this mystical Three Seas Initiative, Poland should play the role of a pseudo-power. Although, no one else is particularly serious about these ambitions of Warsaw and its geopolitical fantasies.
This message presents several popular pro-Kremlin narratives about the foreign policy of Poland - it promotes the widespread narrative about Russophobic Poland, misrepresents the nature of NATO’s military presence in this country and spreads wrong information about the Three Seas Initiative.
The Polish authorities are worried about the aggressive policies of Russia, which are manifested in the Russian illegal annexation of Crimea, Russia's armed military aggression in Ukraine and other hostile actions against the Russian neighbours.
