Three Seas Initiative is a geopolitical concept designed to promote American interests

Summary of Disinformation

The American gas industry perceives Poland as the agent of influence, which should promote the American LNG among the members of the Three Seas Initiative. This geopolitical concept was designed to promote the American interests in Europe (undermining cooperation between Russia and Europe).

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe, alleging that the United States fully controls the foreign policy of the EU member states, including Poland (these countries are often presented as the American “vassals”). See similar cases here, here and here.

The Three Seas Initiative is a forum of 12 countries from Central and Eastern Europe launched in 2015. The main goal of this Initiative is to promote better connectivity among the Member States, with a particular focus on infrastructure and energy. The main projects discussed at the forums of the Three Seas Initiative are the Via Carpathia, Baltic-Adriatic Corridor, Via Baltica, Rail Baltica, LNG infrastructure in Poland and Croatia.
