The US keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian leash

Summary of Disinformation

The United States intentionally keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian “leash” as the Poland-Russia conflict makes this country lonely on the international arena. The relations between Poland and Russia will continue to be tense as it is beneficial for the United States to keep Poland in conflict with Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the United States shape foreign policy of the European countries and push them to conflict with Russia – see examples here for Poland, here for the EU and here for Germany.

The statement that the United States controls the Polish elites and political decision-making process is a conspiracy theory. Poland is a sovereign state, which forms its own foreign and domestic policies. As a member of NATO and the EU, Poland is able to impact the formation of common foreign policies of these organisations.
