Poland in 2008 year was going to take the pro-Russian course?

Polish media today publish materials stating that they have declassified materials on the consideration by the country's authorities (in 2008) the possibility of switching to the “pro-Russian course”. We are talking about a document from 4 March 2008 of the year, which was reportedly "declassified" by the head of the Polish Foreign Ministry, Witold Vashchikovsky.

The document is called "Theses on the policy of the Republic of Poland in Russia and Ukraine". The document is signed by the then head of the Eastern Policy Department of the Polish Foreign Minister Yaroslav Bratkevich. It is alleged that the document was attached to the hand and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Radoslav Sikorsky.

Poland in 2008 year was going to take the pro-Russian course?

According to Vashchikovsky, the document was created with the aim of "changing Poland’s foreign policy from pro-Ukrainian to pro-Russian." According to the statements of the current Polish politicians, the theses of the report contain a variant of a kind of political bargaining with the West, taking into account that by the year 2008 “Russia has exhausted the possibilities for military influence”.

It is noteworthy that the document was declassified in the fall of 2015 of the year, but these data have only been leaked to the press now.

One gets the impression that the publications about the alleged readiness of the Polish government in 2008 to take a “pro-Russian” course are aimed at creating a negative image of the previous Polish ministers against the background of the current government. Indeed, in Poland the Russophobia of the current authorities passes all imaginable and inconceivable boundaries, as well as the desire for this Russophobia to score certain points on settling accounts with political competitors.

    Yeah! That's why Kaczynski was banged over the territory of Russia ... I wondered - what a strange plane crash - which is extremely beneficial to the Anglo-Saxons and the pro-Western lobby in Poland. You can’t imagine a better way to inflate Russophobic hysteria, then establish a missile defense system and deploy a contingent of alliance troops!

        It looks very much like it was at least discussed. Sikorski is known for his famous scandalous statement made in a private conversation and which hit the Polish media in 2014.
        Quote“The alliance between Poland and the United States does not cost anything,” says the person identified as Sikorski. “It is even harmful because it creates a false sense of security.” This is complete shit. We are in conflict with Germany, with Russia and we think that everything is super, because we suck off the Americans wassat . Losers. Complete losers. " wassat

    All politicians in Poland were influenced by the United States, and today the same thing. A passenger plane was shot down over Ukraine - also a provocation to bring down Russia. Russophobia developed rapidly. No one wants to investigate this catastrophe, it’s also a secret or. Who wants to take on this crime. The criminal will not put himself in jail. From the first day it was clear that this was not Russia, but in the American and European media they already wrote who was the culprit. The wreckage flew to the ground, and their material was already ready, what should be written.

    Now, according to the American version, they will begin to seek out "traitors to the motherland" and purge the opposition. What other benefit is the declassification of this document for the current authorities?

    They seem to be preparing for a retreat. Against the background of a radically changing situation in the world and around Russia, they want to have time to jump into the last car of a train departing from Russophobia.
    We wanted, but it didn’t work then ....

    Nonsense. The EU fed and watered Poland. NATO defended it. What could be a "pro-Russian" course?

    Pure internal political squabble.

    the document was created with the aim of “changing the foreign policy of Poland from pro-Ukrainian to pro-Russian”

    Churchill, in my opinion, said: "Politics is the art of the possible." There is nothing to take from Ukraine, you can reorient yourself to Russia. Benefit and only it.
