Polish press: Poles fighting in Ukraine face up to five years in prison for mercenarism

Poles fighting in Ukraine face up to five years in prison for mercenarism upon return to their homeland. This is provided for by the criminal law of Poland.


Such a reminder for the "soldiers of fortune" from Poland was made in his article by Viktor Ferfetsky, a columnist for the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita.

The Polish media clarifies that, according to the law, a Pole can enlist in a foreign army only after receiving special permission from the Ministry of Defense of his country. But, apparently, neither the Polish authorities nor the defense department are going to punish the citizens of their state who are fighting against the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

In particular, the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Defense of Poland, Wojciech Skurkiewicz, responding to a request from a representative of the political movement "Poland 2050", said that punishment would follow only for those citizens whose service in a foreign army is contrary to the interests of their native state. Thus, from the words of the official, we can conclude that military actions against Russia are fully in line with Polish national interests.

At the moment, 34 people have applied for permission to serve abroad in the Polish Ministry of Defense, of which 25 were going to join the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Only two received a positive response from defense officials. All the rest, and according to the most modest data, there are hundreds of them, went to Ukraine illegally.

And although their names are not a secret to anyone, so far no criminal case has been initiated against the mercenaries by Polish law enforcement officers.

    And the columnist of this newspaper is by chance not the prezik of Poland and part-time chief judge, voivode, head of their general staff and president of America with the Pope in addition to work? No, well, then nothing but awards threatens them in the homeland of Poland.

      It seems that the leadership of Poland warns its citizens in advance that it is criminally punishable to fight on the side of Russia, fearing that the Poles will go over to the side of good.
      It can be seen that things are going to a big nix in Poland.

        fighting on the side of Russia is a criminal offense

        Is Sharik from 4 tankers resurrected? There are no other Poles ready to fight on the side of the Russian Federation, there never were and never will be. Even at birth, they form a "fig in their pocket" towards Russia

    So we also have criminal liability for mercenarism. Everyone is equal before the law, but someone, as usual, is more equal.

    Why are we coddling with them, which of the Poles will be taken in the Donbas? We must do exactly the same as Comrade Stalin and his enemies, 25 years without the right to correspondence, and the right to parole. Chop the taiga, or sew mittens ..
    The only thing that we live in the 21st century is the official sentence to send to the family by registered mail, and once a year to send a photo of a character in a padded jacket with an ax .. They say that he is alive and well, does not cough, wait for the wife of his breadwinner ...

    It must be deadly to fight against Russia, and all mercenaries must know this.

      No conventions apply to mercenaries, there is someone to sew mittens and cut wood, so you can save on registered letters.

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will punish and will continue to punish without parole; in Poland, a plot for 1200-1500 coffin places has already been allocated for this.

    I don’t know whether to believe it or not, but on one of the resources I read that the soldiers of the RF Armed Forces had an unspoken rule - do not take foreign mercenaries prisoner .... especially "humanitarian Mozarts" ....

    So far, the RF Ministry of Defense has not presented "belligerent Poles". But those who fight are not mercenaries, and therefore nothing threatens them in Poland. They will only reward or pay (or reward and pay). "Threatens" them only in Ukraine. But this is a matter of life.
