Donald Tusk becomes the new Prime Minister of Poland

Poland has a new prime minister. After numerous attempts by Jaroslaw Kaczynski's Law and Justice party to maintain control over the government led by Morawiecki, the new majority coalition passed a vote of no confidence in both Morawiecki and the entire government. As a result, the head of this coalition, Donald Tusk, was nominated for the post of head of government.

With a majority of votes, Polish parliamentarians supported Tusk, and he became the new head of the Polish cabinet.



During the election campaign, he promised to pursue closer integration with the EU, but at the same time did not allow himself openly Russophobic attacks. Tusk also stated that Ukraine’s movement towards Europe is an important matter, but for Poland it is now more important to solve internal problems.

In a very short time it will become clear whether Tusk’s position will change after his appointment as prime minister.

Let us remember that Donald Tusk previously headed the European Council.

      No matter who comes to power in Poland, one thing remains constant - ardent RUSOPHOBIA!!! Hatred of Russians and Russia even overcomes the Psheks’ dislike of Ukrainians and Ukraine and forces both of them to unite in their common hatred of us...

        Served in Poland as a conscript, 86-88. I talked with Poles, hard workers in the countryside. I drank with them a couple of times, and they treated me. I didn’t notice any Russophobia - men are like men. Everyone could speak Russian more or less passably (the people were mostly middle-aged and older, 30-60 years old). It is clear that then it is not now, but nevertheless. And hard workers are simple people, not inclined to clarify historical contradictions and other garbage. I think there is no need to label the entire Polish people as pathological/genetic Russophobia. It’s just that there are ideologists like the VNA, and they are in power.
        Yes, I had to participate in joint exercises with the Polish army. My impression is that they are complete idiots and don’t care. Our Soviet army is simply the height of discipline and training :))

      We are smarter... We will never trade the plague for anything. It’s just that the State Duma does not have such rights under the Constitution to change anything at will...... The consent of the President is necessary. And if the President does not agree three times, then the Duma itself will be changed.... As Barin decreed, so it will be.

      Only one thing is not clear: why do we need a State Duma at all? We need Monarchy. Install and don't bother. And for stability and confidence - - Serfdom... What joy there will be!! laughing

      Still, faith in the “good king” (whether our own or someone else’s) is ineradicable in us. “The good king will come...” And everything will be covered in chocolate? There won't be a damn thing. Some people in America were happy about Trump too. And now they think that Trump is better than Grandfather Self-propelled...
      Who cares who!
      And Trump is not our friend, nor is Tusk, nor even Orban and Vucic. Both Macronov and Scholz were seen, and some hopes were pinned on citizen Dynina in Italy.
      We have no friends in the West. Everyone thinks about himself and, if possible, about his country.

      The only positive thing about Tusk is that we know that he is an enemy and a scoundrel. Therefore, there are no illusions or expectations about him. No surprises.

          Did I really say that?
          It’s just that the previous one, before climbing to the very top, didn’t really shine and it was unknown what to expect from it (although what kind of unknown can there be in relation to Poland!). And this one has already been tested, we saw it “in action”. That’s why he said that there are definitely no illusions about him.

    Polish, stinking arrogance is forever... Gehenna, however...

    As the Head of the European Council, Tusk stated: Russia poses a threat to the EU.
    “I had to publicly remind those around me almost every week that Russia is not our “strategic partner”, but our “strategic problem.” I've even been called a "single-idea zealot" for being so focused on the subject. But in the end the approach paid off."

    When I was a student, I had a friend who was Polish (or Polish?) - she was such an entertainer!
    Everyone was so exemplary during the lectures, but in one it got to the point of sadomasochism and “Kiss my leg and only then take me like a dirty female dog!”
    It was fun, but I don’t agree to live like this all the time.

    As far as I understand, Tusk is more sensible than the current leaders of Poland. But will he be able to pursue an independent policy?

    And further. Just without emotions. Why should the Poles love us? And in general, on the political map of the world, does anyone love someone, especially among their neighbors?

        12 December 2023 00: 08
        The Poles believe that these bonuses are their former territories lost due to the fault of Russia. For some reason they do not blame Austria and Germany for this loss. From which I conclude that our country has shown too much liberalism towards those who did not deserve it. And the Polish question had to be resolved somehow differently.

            Of course. And they also consider their attitude towards us normal. But they are not alone in this. It seems to the whole world that we owe them. True, there is a certain ideological stamp in this, which is actively being propagated in the Western world.

      A cunning one who pretends to be smart. Plutarch’s statement would be very suitable for him - “A smart statesman must act every time as the state of affairs requires, in what is most beneficial for him.”

      Donald Tusk is considered one of the most significant politicians in modern Poland. Indeed, he is so far the only modern Polish politician who managed to lead his Civic Platform party to victory in parliamentary elections twice in a row in 2007 and 2011 and lead the Polish government twice.

      All the laurels are attributed to him for the fact that despite all the problems and difficulties, the economic policy of the Tusk government was able to provide Poland with stable economic growth, which is especially noticeable and indicative against the backdrop of the economic recession in other European countries.

      But at the same time, they are modestly silent about the colossal financial injections of the European Union into Poland over all the years of its membership in the EU, which actually allowed Tusk to easily and effectively change the face of the country.

      For some time now, this trickle has dried up, largely thanks to the Poles themselves, including because of their principled position on the issue of independence of the Polish judicial system. And she can no longer boast of anything in front of her other neighbors. Although he continues to turn up his nose...

      Moreover, the Poles began to refuse money only last year. And before that, they received them regularly and without fail throughout all the years of their membership in the EU. Even with such strained relations, the EU budget provides for the allocation of a total of almost 160 billion euros to Poland in the period from 2021 to 2027. That is, Poland, it is not clear why, is still one of the largest recipients of funding from the long-term EU budget and the Economic Recovery Fund. The latest amount is the largest in Polish history. After all, since 2004, the Polish budget has already received astronomical assistance from the European Union in the amount of 181 billion euros. The next 160 billion somehow magically coincided again with Tusk's premiership (???)

      Why not? You can expect anything from the Poles.

      The Russophobic Law and Justice party (PiS) was defeated in the elections, and at the same time lost the post of prime minister.

      Even the first signs of warming in relation to Russia appeared. For example, the other day, deputy Krzysztof Paszyk from the Polish Peasant Party, which joined the current ruling coalition of opposition forces, was asked what he thought about the fact that Donald Tusk, who may soon become Prime Minister of Poland, two weeks ago in a conversation with journalists complained that PiS jeopardizes interests and relations with Russia.

      Krzysztof Paszyk replied:

      I don't know this statement, but Today we cannot afford, as a country located in a certain part of Europe, to aggravate relations with any of our partners who are historically friendly to us.

      But I personally treat him very warily, especially as a person who already participated in the work of the Solidarity movement in the 80s.
