Poland celebrates 100 years of independence and victory over the Bolsheviks
The march will bring together more than 1500 soldiers, as well as about 200 units of military equipment: airplanes, helicopters, Tanksfighting vehicles. Historical 900 reenactors who will go in separate columns dressed in uniforms of different eras will give a look to this event, and some of them even go on horseback to the parade.
To look at this spectacle of "independent" Poland invites guests from abroad, who shoulder to shoulder with the "winners" will pass through almost all of Warsaw.
Celebrate so many events and hold such a number of events in one day, hanging on an infinite number of trinkets from past centuries - this is exactly a knight's move. Only for what? Since when is it customary to invite strategic and military planning partners to the parade in honor of Independence Day? Doesn't the celebration of independence mean that from now on they will always remain so “original” and “independent”?
And the historical reconstruction? What kind of sovereignty of the state can we talk about when they drag over the events of the times of the Commonwealth to such holidays and dress up in medieval clothes, when no one ever thought about any autonomy? ..
An elderly resident of Warsaw, who was watching the parade rehearsal, said that everything that happened to him reminded him of wartime: "The columns of armored personnel carriers are passing, the earth is shaking, an avalanche of sounds is flying ... Fortunately, this does not accompany our everyday life."
I want to add: while not accompanying. It's time for the Poles to look at what is happening in neighboring Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. There, NATO exercises are held almost several times a month, one larger than the other. This is precisely who has become accustomed to military technology on city roads, and to foreign fighters on their land, and to other people's decisions in the politics of their country.
