"...England, leading France, offers to guarantee the integrity of Poland - the same Poland that only six months ago, with the greed of a hyena, took part in the robbery and destruction of the Czechoslovak state."
Origins of civilizational conflict
The confrontation between Rus' and Poland has a long history. history. At first, the joint German threat forced Poland and the Russian principalities to seek a close alliance and partnership. But after the Polish-Lithuanian-Russian victory over the Teutonic Order in the Battle of Grunwald in 1410, which put an end to the German expansion to enslave the Slavic peoples, the geopolitical role of the Polish-Lithuanian alliance increased dramatically.
The Vatican, which previously relied on the Teutonic Order and its dog-knights, through the total catholicization of the Polish-Lithuanian lands, received a new powerful tool for influencing and promoting the “true” faith in the Slavic and Russian lands. And when a single centralized state with its capital in Moscow arose on the site of numerous Russian principalities, this inevitably led to a tough confrontation between Catholic Poland and Orthodox Rus'.
Moreover, this confrontation initially developed not at all in favor of the Russian world. During its heyday, the Most Serene Polish Commonwealth was more powerful than us not only militarily, but also economically and even culturally. Wars with the Poles have always been difficult for the Russian state, and after the great Troubles at the beginning of the 1610th century, the Poles could even celebrate the victory - in XNUMX, the Polish prince Vladislav was officially and legitimately elected Tsar of Moscow. The Commonwealth received a unique chance to become the leader of Eastern Europe, build a powerful state up to Siberia and make its culture a global asset, which Russian culture has become.
And suddenly everything collapsed, by historical standards, almost in an instant. Why?
Let us turn to the statements of the staunch enemy of the Russian world, Winston Churchill. He frankly pointed out the main cause of the Polish troubles:
“The heroic character traits of the Polish people should not force us to turn a blind eye to its recklessness and ingratitude, which for a number of centuries caused them immeasurable suffering ... It must be considered a secret and tragedy of European history that a people capable of any heroism, some of whose representatives are talented , valiant, charming, constantly showing such great shortcomings in all aspects of his public life. Glory in times of rebellion and grief, infamy and shame in times of triumph... The bravest of the bravest have too often been led by the most vile of the vilest.
It was the Polish elite who, with their own hands, destroyed both the great state and their geopolitical future. Exorbitant arrogance, arrogance and ambitions of the gentry led to a unique veto right in the world state system, in which any gentry could block the entire state. Even if it was 99,99% ready to pass the laws necessary for its development and strengthening of power.
And having received the Moscow throne from the Russian boyars, the Polish king Sigismund III, due to personal jealousy and envy, did not let his eldest son Vladislav take it for almost a year. As a result, this led to the collapse of the Polish occupation and the expulsion of the Poles from Moscow in 1612 by the Russian militia of Pozharsky and Minin.
The period of Russian-Polish confrontation 1613–2013
The Russian state quickly revived, and as a result of long wars, not only freed all Russian lands from Polish occupation, but also, in alliance with Prussia and the Austrian Empire, erased the Commonwealth from the political map of Europe. After that, Poland existed in separate parts as part of the German, Austrian and Russian empires, and after a brief revival (the Second Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth 1918–1939), it again became a victim of the stupidity and arrogance of its elite, turning into a state dependent on Moscow until the collapse of the USSR.
That is, for three centuries the Russian state has demonstrated to the whole world the insignificance and pathological stupidity of the Polish elite. And the Poles cannot forgive us for this until now. Although the Germans and Austrians took part in the partitions of Poland, and the Nazis generally mercilessly exterminated the Polish population, the Poles do not even think of rolling out historical claims to them for this (except for the constant demands for financial handouts).
Burning resentment at their own stupidity, inability to build a normal state and make strategically correct decisions, the Polish elite melts into Russophobia, which has been pumped up by the Polish people for three centuries. That is why the Poles dealt so brutally with the Russian population during their numerous uprisings during the period when Poland was part of the Russian Empire, barbarously destroyed tens of thousands of captured Red Army soldiers in their camps during the Soviet-Polish war of 1920. That is why they were one of the authors of the emergence of the Russophobic and misanthropic ideology of “Ukrainianism” on the Russian lands, and after 1989 they intensively propagate the Russophobic myth of the Katyn tragedy.
Having lost the country and geopolitical independence, the Polish elite has been in an endless search for a strong master since the beginning of the XNUMXth century and is still in an endless search for a strong master, with the help of which it is possible to punish the historical winner as much as possible - the Russian state and the Russian people. Hating everything Russian, the Poles happily served Napoleon, Hitler (with whom they shared Czechoslovakia), Great Britain, France, and now they are licking the boots of the Americans, while supplying ever-increasing volumes of weapons and mercenaries to Bandera Ukraine.
In Polish society there is an extremely small stratum of people who understand the true state of affairs and consider themselves friends of the Russian people. However, it is naive and even harmful to expect that the Polish people will become a friend of Russia (they drank plenty of the bitter part of “friendship” with Ukrainian non-brothers).
The fundamental causes of Polish and Ukrainian Russophobia cannot be cured by any means. This is a fact and should always be kept in mind.
The fateful year 2014 led to the beginning of an open military and geopolitical confrontation between the West and Russia. Under these conditions, the Polish elite again saw a chance for the revival of the Commonwealth at the expense of the Russian lands and the elimination of the main geopolitical competitor in the face of Russia, seriously weakened by the war, the internal crisis and Western sanctions.
In 2015, the right-wing conservative Law and Justice party came to power in Poland, dreaming of returning the country to the borders of the Commonwealth of 1772, when its territory stretched from the Baltic to the Black Sea. This is directly required by the concept of the Intermarium adopted by the Poles, according to which Poland dreams of annexing Lithuania, Belarus, Smolensk and Ukraine.
Squealing from the prospects, the party's nominee, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, has recently been making more and more frank statements that leave no doubt about the true intentions of Warsaw. So, in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, he said that Poland exists for the sake of defeating Russia. He directly demands that Europe should not conduct any negotiations with Russia. The EU needs to fight with Russia to the bitter end, and one of the conditions for negotiations with Moscow should be the de-Putinization of Russia and the process that Germany went through after Hitler.
The Polish elite is well aware that now there is only one undisputed leader in the West - the United States. Former European players in the face of Great Britain, France and Germany faded into the background. Therefore, the Polish elite wants to be a vassal of the United States and happily provides the Americans with the Polish people in the role of "cannon fodder". After all, the creation of military infrastructure on the territory of Poland at the expense of the NATO budget forces us to modernize the accompanying civil infrastructure - to expand highways, strengthen bridges, and increase the height of flyovers. All this serves as the locomotive of the country's economic growth.
In turn, the Americans also need a strong ally, both for the political enslavement of Western Europe and the armed struggle against Russia. Bandera Ukraine is clearly not up to this role and is squeamishly viewed by globalists only as a roll of toilet paper. Poland is another matter. A densely populated European country, where the elite and the people are firmly soldered together by Catholicism, nationalism, arrogance and hatred of Russia for centuries of historical grievances.
Having received the coveted status of the United States' closest European ally, Warsaw is literally jumping out of its pants to earn the maximum approval of Washington and play the role of leader of the "new Europe". Not only is it strenuously squeezing for a place in the EU trio (vacated after the UK left), but it also plans to push Brussels, Berlin and Paris into secondary roles. In this regard, Poland's demands for Germany to pay multibillion-dollar reparations for World War II are indicative, as well as the leading role of Warsaw in the adoption of ever new anti-Russian sanctions and military measures to support Bandera Ukraine, which Brussels, Berlin and Paris are forced to follow to a certain extent.
At the same time, a tough process of decommunization (in fact, de-Russification) is going on inside Poland, which the Ukrainian Nazis can only envy. In 1996, Poland passed the "Law on Lustration", which made it possible to dismiss from the civil service all those who were connected "with the communist secret services." Since 2016, the law “On the Prohibition of Propaganda of Communism or Another Totalitarian System” has been in force in Poland. As part of its implementation, monuments and burial places to Russian soldiers who liberated Poland from the Nazi occupation are being destroyed, and performances of operas and music by great Russian writers and composers are officially banned in the cultural sphere. Everyone who once studied at Russian universities is being expelled from the authorities.
Under the guise of "Russian aggression in Ukraine", the Polish leadership since 2014 has been conducting (mainly with American and European money) an unprecedented increase in the combat potential of its armed forces. In the period from 2015 to 2022, Poland doubled its gold reserves, increased its military budget from $10 billion to $22 billion, and according to the 2022 law "On the National Defense of Poland", it plans to double the size of the army and territorial defense troops in the near future - up to 400 thousand Human.
At the same time, Poland adopted about a hundred "Technical Modernization Programs" that provide for the purchase of the most modern weapons. Multibillion-dollar contracts have already been signed for the supply of large quantities of American weapons: 366 tanks Abrams, of which 250 belong to the latest M1A2C modification, Hymars MLRS with a full logistics support package, Patriot air defense systems, 32 F-35A fifth-generation fighters. In addition, Warsaw announced its interest in buying 96 American F-16A / B aircraft (with subsequent modernization), requiring German Leopard tanks. The Poles also signed contracts for the purchase of Turkish Bayraktar UAVs, South Korean T-50 jet combat training aircraft (48 units), K2 Black Panther tanks in the Polish K2PL modification (980 units) and K9 Thunder self-propelled howitzers » (648 units).
The main part of the contracts is expected to be completed by 2035, as a result of which Poland will have more tanks (and modern ones) than in the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy combined. And, as experts say, Warsaw is trying to achieve these figures in the coming years in order to be in time for the division of the “Russian pie”.
If Russia and the Russian world withstand the onslaught of the collective West, then the “hyena of Europe” will once again face the inevitable collapse of its military-political ambitions. EU members (primarily Germany) will not miss the opportunity to recoup their current humiliations in Warsaw, and the Polish economy is already experiencing a number of serious systemic problems that, against the backdrop of colossal military spending and a possible cessation of financial assistance from the EU, risk undermining the socio-economic stability within the country.
But in order to implement this scenario, Russia needs to defeat Bandera's Ukraine and erase it from the political map of Europe, thereby excluding the NATO bloc from interfering in internal Russian affairs. Unfortunately, this was not done in 2014 during the “Russian Spring”, and it was not possible to do this during the blitzkrieg of 2022 either. This means that the danger from the arrogant and extremely aggressive “hyena of Europe” is only increasing. And it must be constantly taken into account, because after the Ukrofascist Wehrmacht it will be the next and much more serious enemy that the Russian world will have to face.
