The Verkhovna Rada supported the idea, agreed with the IMF, on the appointment of the Head of the board of Ukrgasbank, Kyrylo Shevchenko, to the post of Head of the National Bank of Ukraine. It is not Zelenskyy who nominated Shevchenko to the post of Head of the NBU, rather the IMF appointed him. There will be no independent leadership of the NBU in Ukraine.
Andrzej Duda’s re-election as Polish president means that Polish anti-Russian policies will continue and Belarus will become one of the main objects of Polish influence. US military presence in Poland will strengthen and Warsaw will be the initiator of various provocations up to the deployment of US nuclear missiles in the Baltic sea region. Relying on the US, Poland will also have confrontational relations with the EU countries, Germany and France in the first place. Poland will continue to be US’s Trojan horse in Europe. The US’s goals are to prevent rapprochement of Germany and France with Russia and to bring controversies into the project of European integration, and Poland is very instrumental in this regard.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Russophobic Poland, its vassal status, the US presence in Europe and Polish-US relations. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses Polish political establishment of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies, and present Poland as US's vassal country. The statement that Poland is not a sovereign state is a conspiracy theory. Poland is an independent state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Poland is the US's "Trojan horse" and is a fully controlled country, that Poland is the US's puppet government, that Latvia is a US's vassal state and that Poland plans to establish an anti-Russian buffer zone including Belarus.
