DISINFO: The US is Poland's master


Poland is trying to serve two masters at the same time, not only relying on European Union funds, but also trying to bow to the United States of America. Perhaps it will become a base for Washington in the old world or will receive a large grant to defend American interests.


A common pro-Kremlin narrative on the “lost sovereignty” of Poland, which is often presented as a “puppet-state” of the United States. The statement that Poland is submissive to the will of the United States is a conspiracy theory. Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies.

Read similar cases alleging that Polish policy towards the US is shaped by the Americans and that the US keeps Poland on an anti-Russian leash.
