The Flowers of American Democracy

There is a real variety of democracy being cultivated in the world, from the democracy growing wild in Somalia to the hothouse democracy in Sweden. But the most exotic democracy is being cultivated in the United States of America, where local breeders have learned to interbreed flowers of the law with weeds of violence... A US Senate task force has spent several years working on a report on CIA torture... The authorities decided to publish just 500 of the report’s 6000 pages so as not to shock the American public. However, even these 500 pages have caused human rights defenders to cry out: «Gentlemen, what are you doing? What is the CIA doing with Gestapo-like torture chambers?»...

Prospects for Ukraine’s Partition. Warsaw to Waste no Time Rushing to the Party

The story is getting more confirmations. The rumors launched by Radoslaw Sikorski, the speaker of Polish parliament, who accused Moscow of offering Poland parts of Ukraine, were concocted by Poles themselves with a distinct goal in mind – to feel out the reaction on the idea of Ukraine’s partition... Sikorski realized that he jumped the gun and his statements were negatively affecting the government plans, so he changed the tactics... Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Shetina joined Sikorski making botched statements. In an interview to Gazeta Wyborcza he compared the relationship of Warsaw and Kiev with the relations between European countries and their colonies in Africa...

Tuchola: Polish Death Camp for Russians

In early November a memorial to «the victims of Maidan» was suddenly erected on the Wilenski square, Warsaw, no matter the plans had envisioned the restoration of the Brotherhood in Arms Statue devoted to commemorate dozens of thousands of Red Army soldiers who lost their lives to liberate Poland from fascism in the days of WWII. The fact sparked a wave of indignation but it was not the desecration of the soldiers’ memory that caused it. Here is a message posted to Kresy.pl – «Maidan means a square in Ukrainian. Ukrainians made Poles come to maidan before they were slaughtered (in Volyn. – Author’s note). In some populated areas the swamps with remains of the victims are still called maidans». Some time before that the plans to erect the memorial to Polish death camp victims (Red Army soldiers who died in 1922-23) in Kraków’s Rakowicki Cemetery had been cancelled...

Polish Colonialism and Ukraine’s Neo-Nazism

Speaking in parliament recently Leszek Miller, former Poland’s Prime Minister and head of Democratic Left Alliance, said about the Russia-Ukraine relations «Poland has become rather a problem than a solution». The remark did not go unnoticed and he came under harsh criticism from media... Since the very first days of Maidan protests Poland has applied a lot of effort to turn Ukraine into a European problem. And it has closely cooperated with the United States. According to Alexander Yakimenko, the former head of Ukraine’s Security Service operative, «All the orders were given either by the US embassy or by Jan Tombinski, a Polish representative who worked in the EU mission in Kiev. Poland played an invaluable role in the coup. It has always dreamt of restoring its former power and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth»...

On Rewriting the History of the Second World War and Reviving Reparation Claims

The basic principles and terms of the reparation payments made by Germany and her allies were determined in 1945 at the Yalta and Potsdam conferences. For the USSR, the subject of German reparations was closed in 1953 when Moscow outright refused reparation deliveries from the German Democratic Republic and began paying for them at Comecon (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance) prices. Owing to the division of Germany and a number of other reasons, no general records were even set up for Germany’s fulfilment of its reparation obligations. Today, the German government does not have accurate information regarding its reparations and is using little more than certain expert estimates...

Heroizing UPA: Polish Government against Its Own People

On October 14, Petro Poroshenko signed a decree proclaiming October 14 to be the day of celebrating Day of Defender of Ukraine instead of the post-Soviet analogous holiday celebrated on February 23. This day the Ukrainian neo-Nazi traditionally march with torches to mark the anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. The decision sparked a wave of indignation in Poland. Protests hit the streets, the demonstrators picketed the Ukraine’s diplomatic offices demanding to stop heroization of OUN-UPA that is responsible for killing thousands of Poles during WWII. Protesters marched in Przemyśl, Krakow, Wroclaw and Warsaw under the slogan «Lasting Shame to OUN – UPA Murderers from SS Division Galicia»...

Prospects for Ukraine’s Division: Poland Tries it Out

Poland's parliamentary speaker Radoslaw Sikorski has been quoted as saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to Poland's then prime minister to divide Ukraine between themselves. Sikorski, who until September served as Poland's foreign minister, was quoted telling U.S. website Politico that Putin allegedly made the proposal during the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk's visit to Moscow in 2008 as one-to-one meeting took place... It looks like Sikorski made an attempt to test the general reaction to the idea of Ukraine’s partition and simultaneously add the issue of reshaping the borders to the international agenda. Sikorski is impudent enough to shift the blame on others as the Warsaw real intentions are ascribed to third parties...

Russian Victims of Polish Concentration Camps

The idea to erect a memorial in Krakow devoted to Red Army soldiers who lost their lives in Polish concentration camps sparked a scandal in Poland. The Russian Military Historical Society collected funds for a monument to commemorate the Red Army servicemen taken prisoner who died in a concentration camp located in Dąbie and were buried in common grave... The Society’s website says those willing to make a contribution can use the offered bank account. The same post says «Over 1, 2 thousand Red Army prisoners, the victims of the 1919-1921 Soviet-Polish war, are buried at the Krakow cemetery. The names are mainly unknown. Paying respect to their memory is the duty of their successors». Poland is outraged - the idea of erecting a memorial is seen as an attempt to «distort history» and «distract attention from Katyn»...

Polish Chasteners in Ukraine

A protest action against the participation of Polish soldiers and mercenaries in combat actions in Ukraine occurred on October 4 near the parliament building in Warsaw. Participants held flags of Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics. They carried placards with slogans: ‘«,Stop Bandera «Stop supporting Banderites. We remember Volyn!», «No to Polish soldiers participation in NATO military operation in Ukraine!»... The participation of Poles in the Ukrainian crisis has many aspects, including the training of nationalist militants, the participation of mercenaries hired by Polish private contractors in the combat actions in Donbass, the weapons supplies to the Ukraine’s regime and the formation of joint Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian brigade - LITPOLUKRBRIG...

The Polish-American Landmine under the Visegrad Group

Conflicts within the European Union are continuing to intensify, and one of the most successful regional projects in Europe – the Visegrad Group – is at risk... Rather than associating themselves with the policy of Brussels and Warsaw regarding Ukraine, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava are discussing the economy, calculating their losses as a result of anti-Russian sanctions, and even criticising the European Union. Warsaw’s dissatisfaction with the course of events is growing. A lengthy article published in the leading Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza on 19 September puts the question bluntly: why is the Visegrad Group not united in its condemnation of Russia, and why is it not hurrying to rally its members around Poland as the main defender of Ukraine? Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks are accused of collective amnesia, what the newspaper calls exaggerated trade and economic links with Russia...

Cuba and US Foreign Policy

...The shift in the relations between Washington and Havana gives rise to speculations related to Russia-Cuba ties. For instance, the Los Angeles Times writes «Better relations between the United States and Cuba also could undermine Russia's expectation of Havana's backing in political and diplomatic confrontations that pit the former superpowers against each other». The Washington Times believes that the US intelligence is concerned over the Russia-Cuba security agreement concluded in May 2014 establishing a joint working group between Russia’s Security Council and the Cuban Commission for National Security and Defense...
