American journalist: Polish conservatives may prevent Ukraine from joining the EU

Ukraine’s relations with Poland, which at the beginning of the Ukrainian conflict was almost ahead of all of Europe, calling for support for Kyiv and to take up arms against Moscow, have recently become increasingly difficult.

This is happening against the backdrop of Warsaw’s reduction in military supplies to Ukraine and its ban on the import of Ukrainian grain.

And according to Paul Hokenos, a columnist for the American publication Foreign Policy, these relations could become even more complicated if conservatives come to power in Warsaw. The journalist noted that in this case both Ukraine’s accession to the European Union and the situation of Ukrainian refugees would be at risk.

Hokenos believes that this could happen in the event of an alliance between the Law and Justice parties and the Confederation of Freedom and Independence, which are more nationalist, in the elections in Poland.

This could cut off Ukraine's path to the EU

- said the journalist.

According to Hokenos, the far-right party Confederation of Freedom and Independence does not hide its negative attitude towards Ukraine and numerous Ukrainian refugees.

Let us recall that earlier Zelensky at the UN General Assembly spoke about false friends, hinting at Poland. In response, Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki demanded that Kyiv refrain from such statements.

    in this case, both Ukraine’s accession to the European Union and the situation of Ukrainian refugees will be at risk
    It is strange that they continue to talk about the entry into the EU of a country on whose territory there is a war. It is clear that for now it is a carrot, but they say that they are constantly making a serious face and winking promisingly. The situation with Ukrainian refugees in Poland is already becoming more complicated. From 2024, Warsaw will completely stop their financial support, as was announced at the official level. Those who are more cunning are already trying to move to Germany, which is also threatening to close the borders with Poland.

      Changing the places of the terms does not change the sum, they will definitely not go to the outskirts, they will begin to infiltrate further into the EU using the tactics of small groups, especially since the Psheks were the first to say that boys of military age could be deported to Nenka.

    Who needs Ukrainians in the EU? Even funny. How many times have Serbs and Turks been harassed? This is an unattainable “carrot” to which the Ukrainians need to constantly run, while killing Russian soldiers and destroying Russian culture in Russian-speaking cities

      Here I agree, the European Union does not need Ukrainian corrupt oligarchs, America needs ordinary, gray dill to carry out its orders on the battlefield, and Poland needs the territory of Ukraine, preferably without Ukrainians.

    But they really hold the trousers there for complete idiots :))
    Because only complete idiots can believe in this nonsense about Ukraine joining the EU. Because during the war no one will accept her there. Excluded. And if there was a vote, except for the Tribaltic idiots (even bigger cretins than trousers), everyone else would be categorically against it.
    Well, after the war, no one will need Ukraine in the EU. Moreover, over these one and a half years, Europeans have learned very well who the big Svidomo ukrosvin is - arrogant, boorish, lazy, unceremonious, exalted, arrogant, perceiving Europe as a cash cow, not wanting to work, but confident that everyone should support him only for the fact that he is UKRAINIAN!
    Well, who gave in to such rudeness? Yes, they will disown Ukraine like hell from incense :))
