Military Review

The presence of the guard of honor during Kaczynski's "private" visit to his brother's grave sparked a debate in Poland


An unexpected discussion in Poland was caused by reports that the deputy chairman of the Polish government, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, visited a memorial in honor of his brother Lech Kaczynski, who died in a plane crash. The Polish government's protocol service said the visit was private and published photographs that, it turns out, sparked a public discussion.

It is connected with the fact that in Krakow, Kaczynski was accompanied by a guard of honor during his "private visit". Then it turned out that Jaroslaw Kaczynski "tries" to visit the graves of his brother and his wife on the 18th of every month.

When this information was published in the Polish media, controversy arose that if the visit is private, then it cannot be accompanied by the military - soldiers of the guard of honor, and if it is a state event, then it is strange to hold it every month, to put it mildly.

The Poles also questioned why, with the lockdown introduced by the authorities, the Deputy Prime Minister has the right to travel around the country and visit cemeteries.

A few comments from Polish readers (for Wiadomosci):


Private visit? And what does the military guard do there?


He discovered a new branch of covid tourism - cemetery tourism, while other types are closed.

Additional discussion arose in connection with the fact that Kaczynski used his brother's burial place as a platform for political statements.

User A co:

Is this really a great place to make political statements?

Another user noted that other options could have been used to talk to the people.


So what? Did he tell his brother about his violations in Poland that he would never have done?


I noticed that the only occupation of Mr. Kaczynski was visiting churches and cemeteries. Maybe he should already join the monastic Order ...

It should be noted that in Poland a certain percentage of citizens blame Jaroslaw Kaczynski for forming his political rating on the death of his brother in the disaster near Smolensk.

      it was created on the basis of the AK-74, but chambered for the "NATO" cartridge of 5,56 × 45 mm caliber. It looks very simple.

            You can love your brother very much, but monthly visiting his grave with an honor guard and making speeches is pure insanity! But he is younger than me ... Although insanity does not ask when and to whom to come! lol lol Even from a glance it is clear: a paranoid schizophrenic. Is it any wonder strange Polish politics after that? It looks like they have all politicians are!

    Jaroslav Kaczynski
    To be honest, I don't care whether this terry Russophobe and disgusting person visited the cemetery alone or with a company of the guard of honor. I would be interested in the news that someone has visited his grave soon. From the comments of the Poles, one can see what kind of "respect" he enjoys in his country.

    Jaroslaw Kaczynski is still a beetle that doesn't notice.
    On this occasion I remembered:

    Well, purely humanly, if he really loved his brother so much that he visits his grave every month, this certainly inspires respect, and if it is used as a PR, to push a speech or to print spectacular pictures in the media, then this is certainly not a beautiful act!

          There were. They had a chance to become a great empire instead of Russia. But they drank it-skipped. They still cannot understand how this happened and blame Russia for their stupidity.
          Now the Poles are the people of the 2nd category. These are the people who have failed to create their own empire and are terribly complexed before the peoples of the 1st category - the imperial ones.
          But they brag in front of the peoples of the lower categories.
          Especially goes to the people of the 5th category, who have never had their own state throughout history. Name this people?

              A short period during the union with ON. Then it was the largest state, comparable in territory to the Roman Empire.
              If they had not taken it into their head to immediately bully the Russian Orthodox, they would have succeeded. And in fact, Orthodox princes and boyars found themselves in the role of native kings. Who would like it if the consanguineous Moscow principality is nearby?
              This contradiction was never overcome and predetermined the success of the Russian tsars in the wars with Poland.
              The Poles lacked wisdom and state thinking.

                Yes, they could not help but push the "seedlings". The Pope gave carte blanche, while the Pope obliged to spread rot schismatics. Two-thirds of the Polish-Russian confrontation was initially established 1000 years ago: some adopted the faith from the Pope, others from Byzantium. At the same time, even under Yaroslav Vladimirovich (then not yet quite Wise), the Poles and Rusichi fought very harmlessly, purely male showdowns. Yaroslav then got rid of the Poles out of stupidity on the Bug, - they swore for several days, and then the Poles got offended and rushed across the Bug to pile on the Russians. But then, off we go, the population of Eastern Europe became for the Poles (according to the Vatican's manual) cattle, haters and generally "Asians". If in Russia dual faith has existed for centuries, then in Poland clinical Catholicism of the brain entered once and for all. No Wojciech Jaruzelski can handle this.

              And they too.
              Finns, Estonians, Latvians received their own nation state only from Russia in the 20th century.
              Lithuanians are also a people of the 2nd category, who failed to build an empire, stopping a step.
              They, too, are spiteful towards Russia, although it was the arrogant Poles who cut off their chance for a two-pronged empire.
              But the main people of the 5th category are the ancient U kry. No matter how they puffed up, historians have not found evidence of the existence of their state before 1991.

            To be honest, Poland had an ILLUSION of a chance, not a chance to become an empire. There can be no imperial chance when the elite dance to the tune of the Vatican and serve exclusively papal geopolitical interests. The figure is not a player. All Poland's "successes" consisted in luring and digesting the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, which is 90% former Kievan Rus. If it were not for Jagiello, Poland would have disappeared under German rule, despite all the Catholicism of the Polish elite - the knight brothers were much dearer to the Pope, and they really wanted to eat. The absorption of the GDL allowed Poland to rise geopolitically, but over 2 centuries this resource was completely depleted. If there was a chance, it was a very, very long time ago, until Meshko fraternized with the Catholics.

      PiS makes a rating on the development of social programs for the population. Therefore, it has a higher electoral support in the last elections, despite the fact that the party's Russophobia began to tire the population. Money overpowered moral values. (So, by the way I had to)

    The disaster took place in Smolensk itself. A little to the left and this board with the ambassadors would have collapsed into the microdistrict. This is the first thing. And secondly, it is completely uninteresting what they think in Poland about their handlers.
