Polish-European War

Polish-European War



Amazing in stories tragedy is repeated in the form of farce. In 1939, the Poles issued a poster accusing England of treason. Indeed, the declared war of Hitler Germany was a formality, rightly called the "strange war". And now, after almost 80 years, England again "betrays" Poland. Now, having left the EU and ceasing to feed the Poles both with jobs on their island and with funding from European funds.

Winston Churchill, the former British prime minister during the Second World War, wrote a lot of frank information about Poland and the Poles. In particular:

There were always two Poland: one of them was fighting for the truth, the other was groveling in meanness


The modern Poland assembled from patches was glued together by the whole world - the Western European countries after the First World War as the antipode of Bolshevik Russia and, in part, of the defeated Germany. The Soviet Union, after the Second World War, as an ally against all of the same Germany that lost all again, and its own allies in Europe, who quickly became enemies.

The Poles themselves remained all the time in the trend described by Churchill:

Glory in periods of rebellion and grief, vileness and shame in periods of triumph. The bravest of the brave too often were led by the nastiest of the vilest!


The glorious generation of Poles, who heroically fought for the freedom of Poland against the Nazis, went into oblivion. They were replaced by a new generation, which received its independence from the USSR from the hands of Gorbachev and his "Western friends." The time of triumph has come and the aged generation of the “bravest” has been replaced by the generation of the “infamous”.

Poland developed rapidly and dynamically, turning into an exemplary country that came to the European embrace from the "communist torture chambers". To date, Warsaw shows the best performance among the latter-day members of the European Union. Which does not spoil either the millions of Poles who left the country (according to official data, 2 million by 2013), nor the several million local migrant migrant workers who have left the collapsing Ukraine who have left.

The Polish authorities, always successfully exploiting both Polish arrogance and Polish nationalism, resolutely "grabbed God by the beard" and began to build the most formidable, independent and mono-ethnic state of the European Union. Within the framework of this great goal, Polish legislation was reworked, brakes were lowered or EU requirements were placed on the shelf, which prevented the Polish authorities from pursuing their chosen policies, fanned the flames of nationalism. Which, in addition to traditional Russophobia, has received as fuel and immediate neighbors.

Hidden and not very claims to the Vilnius region constantly hamper any economic projects with Lithuania. From rich Germany they suddenly begin to demand additional payment in the form of reparations for the damage inflicted on World War II, they look predatoryly on neighboring Galicia. While Ukrainian, but in fact - Polish Kresy vskhodnie. The formed team of the PolukrLit on 80 with more than one percent consists of Poles and is “ready to ensure law and order” on adjacent lands to Lviv inclusive. The massacre of Poles by Bandera is legally registered, the genocide of the Polish people is determined, the amounts of claims and reparations have not yet been announced, but the “process has begun”, lawsuits on the seizure of land and property in Galicia are being prepared, numerous lawsuits are on the way.

But the land and financial claims of Poland are quite understandable, if an unbiased look at what is happening from the outside. And it's not the story. There are so many centuries of wars between the same France and Germany that it’s impossible to pick up all the stumbling blocks. Nevertheless, they live without hysteria at the interstate level.

Claims on “Wielkopolska”, on overseas colonies (it was like that), on the lands of neighbors and their wallets, are partly determined by the fact that for centuries, from generation to generation, tales of lost majesty and chosenness of this Slavic tribe, and partly because several generations of Poles live not only on earned money and self-created benefits.

The battles of the Great Patriotic War had not faded yet, and the trains with tractors and cars, fuel and food, clothing and building materials stretched from the war-torn Soviet Union to Poland. After the victory, similar trains have already gone from defeated Germany. From which the works of Stalin were otkushen in favor of Poland, and even a piece of territory freed from local German residents. In Poland, factories and plants were built, technologies and documentation were transferred for the production of machines, aircraft, ships, etc. For the "Polish version of socialism" the USSR paid regularly and a lot.

And then the baton from the weakened hands was picked up by the US and the EU. The Yankees paid for the protection of their interests on the European continent and the deployment of their weapons, the Europeans - for the movement, and then their stay in the European Union.

30 is a million-strong country, stretched between Old Europe and the post-Soviet states, flourished. Millions of tons of cargo rolled along both sides of Poland through roads and railways, hundreds of billions of tons / cubic meters of oil and gas through pipelines, millions of people moved. The cheaper labor than in Germany and similar countries ensured the competitiveness of local products; from the EU leveling funds, Poland received annually grants for more than 10 billion euros (more than 2004 billion euros from 100).

But that's not all. According to official data, Poland’s foreign debts as of the end of 2016 have exceeded 336 billions of dollars. It turns out that over the years of their stay in the EU, each Pole (from old man to baby) received about three thousand euros as a gift and at the same time managed to take in dollars and at the end of 2016 of the year could not return almost 10 thousand dollars. Agree that with such financial injections, people are accustomed not only to earn good money, but also to receive regular “premiums”. Simply put, this level of macro-financial assistance allows you to get more material benefits with less labor.

The finale of this life is predictable. The Poles see the EU simply as a cash cow, which has created the current standard of living for them and does not want anything more from this union. As well as from the United States-pay for Russophobia, and okay. And on the policy in relations to Cresam vskhodnym influence "not allowed"!

As a result, the contradictions between the bureaucrats of Brussels and Warsaw are gaining strength for the second year. But the fact that the EU is headed by former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk makes this process particularly piquant. And the Poland-EU conflict also bears obvious traces of internal disassembly. Up to the charges of Tusk that his government had blown up the plane with his twin brother Kaczynski, who now heads the leading party "Law and Justice". This is ridiculous, but on January 11, a commission of the Polish Ministry of Defense called an explosion aboard an aircraft the cause of the crash of the presidential Tu-154 in 2010 over Smolensk. That is, it is no longer any "bad Russians" out there that have done something harm, but real terrorists. And not just like that, but at least in collusion with the Tusk government, which did not prevent or even “did not notice” the explosion on board!

It should not be forgotten that already this year the Poles will elect local authorities, and next year - national - the president and the new parliament (the Sejm). And Donald Tusk’s Civic Platform claims real power.

So one should not be surprised at the words of the current European Council President Tusk, who, in an interview with Tygodnik Powszechny, said that Warsaw may raise the issue of leaving the EU if the country from the recipient of European subsidies turns into a donor.

I can easily imagine the situation when Poland will be among the net donors, then the Polish government can decide that it is time to ask the Poles if they want Poland to continue to remain in the EU


According to Tusk, the current leadership of Poland “at least does not perceive with enthusiasm the country's membership in the European Union.
Britain’s withdrawal from the EU and the departure from the “leveling policy” already announced by Brussels makes Donald Tusk’s prediction reasonable. Already from 2020, Poland can turn into the same donor as Germany with France. But the Poles will never feed the same Lithuania - Polish arrogance will not allow.

And therefore, the gap within the EU will grow and spread, including with the active participation of the Polish leadership.

      On the day of signing the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, Hitler approved a script called "Canned Food", and on August 31 it was implemented. On the very first day, the Polish president dumped from Warsaw, soon followed by command and government. Remembering the Polish guarantees, the allies of September 3 declared war on Germany. The French went for a walk from behind the Maginot Line, walked 10 kilometers, got scared of something, and returned. Instead of bombs, the British dropped anti-Nazi propaganda leaflets on German cities calling for peace. With the outbreak of war, Ribbentrop began to express bewilderment: "Joseph, when will you come for your half?" Stalin mobilized the border districts, but replied that the time had not yet come. On September 11, when the fighting for Warsaw was still going on and the Polish cavalry threw themselves under tanks with peaks at the ready, the Pshek government began negotiations with the Romanians and Hungarians in order to dump quietly and not sign surrender, and, simultaneously with the introduction of Soviet troops, September 17 left the country . As a result, the Polish government showed its incapacity, the Germans showed themselves as frostbitten aggressors, the French and British showed themselves to be unreliable allies. Only Stalin remained in a white jacket and with a fluffy mustache. And only then did the Germans understand how the cunning Georgians stabbed them. They, therefore, did all the dirty work, substituted themselves, and then the Russians came and cut off a piece of Poland along the Vistula in favor of the USSR.

        The USSR did not cut off any pieces of Poland - except for one tiny piece. He cut off to himself, as they put it now, the "temporarily occupied" territories of western Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania, which Poland had occupied 18 years before.

      There were no two fronts in Poland in the 39th. The USSR did not enter Poland at all, only on the territory of the Polish colonies, which no one actually recognized by Poland.

      You're not right. Jews and Jews in Poland were destroyed by the Poles themselves.
      SOVIET JEWS were killed from June 22, 1945, first by the Poles and only then by the Germans. Europeans nevertheless sorted their Jews, some of their Jews were sold through neutral countries. Some served in the Wehrmacht. Even among prisoners of war there were more than ten thousand (10000) Jews.

          Thanks for pointing out the error. Too scary date June 22, 1941. From that he immediately jumped in 1945.
          And so there are very famous cases when the Poles, following the Wehrmacht, invaded the Soviet Union and robbed border towns and villages. It was then that the massacres of Jews by the Poles were noted. Among the Polish robbers and murderers were both children and women. The worst example was shown by the Poles in Edvabna, when the Poles beat to death ALL the population of this town.

            The Poles slaughtered all Jews and Ukrainians ... And when Stalin annexed East Prussia to Poland, 5 million Germans were expelled from their lands, 2 million of them did not reach Germany - whole Polish villages were engaged in robbery and murder, from small to large. ..

    I learned from the article that:
    - Poland has stable economic growth
    - The national government, which defends national interests and does not allow to turn the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth into a multicult hell, into which the EU rolls year after year
    - The Poles use the international political situation in their own interests, getting as many freebies as you can get
    - The Polish elite defends its state sovereignty from the Euroraich by any means and, moreover, successfully.
    In total, we can conclude that the Poles are well done and we have something to learn from them.

    At some point, the Poles and I need to forget the old squabbles. The Russians have a lot of complaints against them and they have to us. It is better to watch the movie 4 Tankist and the dog. And measure it. At this point in history, we have nothing to share. Moreover, the Poles can get much more from an alliance with Russia than vice versa. You can only scold our government, which cannot find an alliance with this country.

          All of you are bound by betrayal! This is when Russia gives Bulgaria independence, at the cost of the blood of its own soldiers, the whole of Europe does not recognize Bulgarian sovereignty for another 30 years and at the Berlin Congress will cut back Bulgarian territory ... But nevertheless, in both World Wars Bulgaria is fighting against Russia on the side of its enemies ! And today it is a member of NATO and is working out soldering by inserting sticks into the wheels of any Russian initiatives, including the South Stream, which is profitable for Bulgaria itself!

                A year ago, in 1913, the future Allies in the Entente - Serbia, Greece and Romania during the WWII occupied 40% of the Bulgarian land (the territory inhabited by Bulgarians of the 13 century). During the WWII, even the most ardent Russophiles in Bulgaria went to the front as volunteers fighting for the refreshment of their own nephews. It could not be otherwise! After all, in our place, Russia, too, would not have left its own under the yoke of others! Not the Bulgarians need to be blamed, but those who betrayed us in 1913 in spite of the agreements!
                not a member of NATO

                Bulgaria joined NATO in 2004. At that time, NATO and the Russian Federation did not conflict. The Russian Federation participated in various partnership programs with NATO and actively helped Americans in Afghanistan. Let us recall that even the entry of Russia into this union was even discussed.
                didn't block South Stream construction?

                Can you prove, even with one official document, that Bulgaria blocked UP?

                  Apparently, you are ignoring the First Balkan War ... It was when you were in the Balkan Union and jointly tattered the lands of the Ottoman Empire, and then, under the leadership of Germany and Austria-Hungary, successfully railed with all your allies ... Well, what’s your right . Let's move on to the Second Balkan War of 1913, as you want ... How did it start ???
                  June 29, 1913 at 3 a.m. Bulgarian troops without declaring war went on the offensive on the Macedonian section of the border. For Serbia, this came as a surprise, as it was expecting negotiations to begin in St. Petersburg. George Buchanan, a British diplomat, said: "Bulgaria was responsible for the discovery of hostile actions"(C)
                  The fact that you received a rebuff in response to your aggression is natural! And the fact that you lost, so you need to be able to fight, and not to show ambition and surrender in whole divisions, for example, on the outskirts of Veles surrendered the 7th division of the Bulgarians in full force!
                  And what did you lose as a result of your defeat? Just what they gained after winning the First Balkan War ...

                        The policy of states is NEVER guided by the categories you imagine! Politics and interstate relations are ALWAYS based on interests and pragmatic calculations. Since it is understood by those in power. Strong states advance their interests by force, while weaker states are forced to compromise. This does not mean that the weak must retreat on matters of vital importance for their existence! There are limits to compromises! The interests of Russia and the states recounted by you often do not agree! For a number of reasons. It is not worth reproaching one or the other for all sins. The difference in interests can be resolved either by conflict or on the basis of compromises. The choice ... for politicians! Everything that you naively fantasize does not take place in real politics! It refers to the relationship between people and nations at the household level. There is no morality in politics! High-end goals are declared by all state ideologies! In fact, they are selected depending on which of them are at a certain moment useful for achieving goals in a particular state policy! For example, "Slavic brotherhood" and "pan-Slavism"! Brotherhood between nations is possible, but not between nations! It happens that the goal and morale are very different! This is for everyone, without an exception to the state! And sometimes they converge, although this is much rarer. Your emotions "tired of ... not tired of ... lyalyalya ..." are purely subjective in nature. Nothing to do with reality in politics.

    Before the war begins, you must be able to separate the hostile Polish government from the people. Our government must do this. Since it does not do this, it is necessary to turn to its government, to force it to engage in the Polish government, first of all, not allowing the latter to pump money from Russia. For example, from the Kaliningrad region.
