Polish MFA: the promises that NATO made to Russia in 1997 g are outdated

78
NATO’s guarantees of non-deployment of significant military forces on the territory of the members of the alliance are outdated and were given to the “other Russia,” said Polish Foreign Minister Witold Vashchikovsky.




“We do not question the privileged dialogue between NATO and Russia 1997 of the year. In a conversation with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, I supported the idea of ​​resuming negotiations between NATO and Russia under certain conditions. But we question the political declaration that no significant military or defense forces will be stationed in the territory of the new NATO member states. We believe that such statements are outdated, as they were made in relation to another Russia, which had not yet behaved imperially and had not waged external wars, ”the newspaper quotes the diplomat. Look.

According to him, “the reasons why significant alliance forces have not yet been deployed in Poland are connected only with the position of Germany, which cares more about Russia's interests than about security interests in Central Europe,” said Vashchikovsky.

“Therefore, we want to ask our German partners: where is your solidarity regarding your closest partner,” he added.

The minister sharply criticized the intention of the Russian Federation and Germany to continue work on the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

“We are shocked. For many years we have been saying that Nord Stream 1 was a political project to bypass Central Europe and the possibility of blackmail. We explained this to the Germans, but they repeat the same mistake and try to convince us that this is not a political gas pipeline, but a private commercial project. We were not born yesterday. We know that on the one side there is a powerful Russia, and on the German side there are powerful concerns that implement state policy. In general, we see only a decline in German attitudes towards Poland. But we want good relations and a better understanding of our concern about deploying NATO units in Poland. ”- said Vashchikovsky.

The newspaper reminds that in November Vashchikovsky declared the intention of Warsaw to “invalidate” the Founding Act of the NATO-Russia 1997 of the Year.

    connected only with the position of Germany, which cares more about Russia's interests than about interests in the security sphere of Central Europe, ”said Vashchikovsky.

    The Germans remember the fall of the Wall and to whom they owe, Russia.
    Nord Stream 1 was a political project to circumvent Central Europe and the possibility of blackmail.

    No, this is the opposite of dropping parasites and blackmailers from Our pipe. They would create an apple pipeline and pump rights to neighbors.

      It’s envious to the Pshek pig that Russian gas does not transit through Poland, therefore, the Pseks can get a kick in the ass for the transit, but along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Nord Stream-2 also bypasses the great Pshekia, and they come to guano from impotence and anger.

    The Poles in their servility to the United States have already surpassed the Ukrainians. Either the Russia-NATO act does not suit them, they are asked to place nuclear weapons on their territory, recently they again raised the old theme of the Kaczynski plane (supposedly there was an explosion on board). They seek to occupy the highest pedestal of the international provocateur.

    Russia and Germany defend their interests through the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project. And Poland and other countries of Eastern Europe defend their own - through the implementation of Russophobic policies and the implementation of orders from the United States directed against Russia. Here is the result. What’s called - who fought for what.

      I wonder if this picture has been translated into the languages ​​of the "participants"? Maybe it's not for nothing that NATO, represented by the Youngonatites, "twitched" about "protecting" the borders. Germany, with the support of Russia, would gladly take part in the restoration of "historical" justice. But this requires a trifle - the abolition of the "chancellor-act". And then in Europe everything will fall into place. bully

Today they drop monuments to those who saved their parents from death, spit in the direction of the people, who, in the years 45-46-47, being himself hungry, shared his last bread and did not ask for payment (like the Americans). Speak out - an agreement. The Polish ruling elite is a gathering of p.o.do.s.c.s.v., it is difficult to expect gratitude from them, not that they have education.

    Americans bring in such countries under their control such politicians who have completely sold and spit on their countries and citizens. They consider their citizens and their country as sources of personal enrichment. And they probably believe that they will either have time to leave the country in time before the owners decide to destroy it, or hoping that their lives will be enough to draw money from the owners and plunder their own countries. During World War II, they were called the fifth column or simply traitors.

    In truth, both Poland itself and the Poles are much better and calmer when they are not a sovereign country, but are included in someone’s composition as a province or province. For judging by the level of stupidity, insanity and regression of Polish politicians, Poland, as a subject of international law, was outdated 20 years ago.

    NATO troops enter Poland.
    Even I remember similar, in the 39-th year it was like ...
    Well, if Poland wants to have a couple of epicenters,
    then let him introduce anything to himself.

    Quote: Oleg Chertkov
    No, this is the opposite of dropping parasites and blackmailers from Our pipe.


    Long Bear turns around. Dropping blackmailers had to be implanted for a long time, in a word. Russia, by kindness, sincerely feeds those who gaffes at it, on command from behind a puddle. Probably enough

    Vashchikovsky announced Warsaw’s intention to “invalidate” the 1997 Russia-NATO Founding Act.

    they still can’t understand that even other EU countries are not ready to die for their interests, not like the United States. They themselves have been assigned the role of cannon fodder in the interests of the United States.
    The United States is a lizard and NATO countries are its tail. When the tail sticks somewhere (believing that the lizard will not abandon it) and the lizard is in danger of it (nuclear war), it will simply throw it away. They will simply say by analogy with Turkey. " the problem is not between Russia and NATO, but between Poland and Russia. " They will pat Poland on the shoulder and say "with your thoughts, we are with you."
    The countries adopted after the collapse of the Warsaw block and the USSR to NATO mentally transferred their security guarantees from the Warsaw block (Russia was always ready to send its soldiers to death in the first line to protect their security) by applying them to NATO.
    Which is fundamentally wrong but they will understand this at the last moment of their quiet existence.

    "Overall, we only see a decline in German sentiment towards Poland."
    Wait guys, you will still see the upsurge of the Germans, and then you will understand that Silesia and other German lands must be returned to the owners.

    "For many years in a row, we have been saying that Nord Stream 1 was a political project to circumvent Central Europe and the possibility of blackmail." Actually, this is just a business, why would the Germans pay pshek, great ukram or someone else to pay for gas transit.

    Only the price of apples can be discussed with the Polish Foreign Ministry. Serious problems are resolved only by creating significant threats to US security. The only promise the West made to Russia is to destroy the "Russian spirit".

    The behavior of the Poles is reminiscent of the behavior of a woman of easy virtue - who pays more, who is stronger, is given to him. In psheks, this is in the genes; and they think it’s completely natural. They used to lie under Tsarist Russia, then under the USSR; and when they fell apart, under the United States. And if suddenly Russia makes a breakthrough and becomes stronger than the United States, then Poland, as if nothing had happened, will again fall under Russia - nothing personal! Well, their fate is such, surrender to the strong!
    Now all the guano pops up; Ukraine, Bulgaria, Montenegro (our best friends) and ... who else are next in line?
    Tsar Alexander was right ӀӀӀ - Russia has only two allies - its army and navy!

    Yes, do what you want, gentlemen Poles! But know that in the event of a conflict, your entire people, your entire country will turn out to be a zone of hostilities, as a result of which no one will ever make a mistake, leaving the "state of Poland" on the map of Europe!

    ... the promises that NATO made to Russia in 1997 are out of date ...

    The word is not a sparrow ...
    If you live by the principles voiced by the Poles, then everything for them (and not only) can turn out to be one-on-one with accuracy - on any issues. Russia is not a bandustan!

    How would Poland not become obsolete? She has been smoking so many centuries in vain.

    The decision to withdraw the western group of forces was outdated and given to "another Europe" ....

    We believe that such statements are outdated, as they were made in relation to another Russia, which has not yet acted imperial and has not waged external wars

    The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth at one time missed a historic chance to become an Empire, annexing Ukraine to itself. And the missed opportunities oh how the psyche crush. Only the train left. And even if, hypothetically, Ukraine is absorbed by the Psheks, the Empire will not make it anyway. Well, Russia is always to blame - why be surprised.
