This war has never been honestly accounted for

Poland is arguably in a better place now, geopolitically speaking, than it has been for a couple of centuries.  But it still faces a challenge in dealing with its neighbours – an aggressive, backward-looking Russia to the east, and an EU in the west that seems to want to forget about the past entirely.  It cannot afford to shirk that challenge.

Overcoming the economic legacy of WW2

Poland is one of those countries that have suffered the greatest losses in the course of the 20th century. 6 million Poles were killed during WW2. As compensation for its Eastern Borderlands, Poland was given the ruined regions of Silesia and Pomerania.

Solidarity’s Appeal—the Power of “Unarmed Prophets”

In this book The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli mentions a certain rule of history. He writes, not without a touch of irony, that “all armed prophets have conquered, and the unarmed ones have been destroyed.” But to every rule there is an exception, and unarmed prophets have been vindicated by history more than once. Even though the vindication usually comes late, it is no less emphatic. A perfect example of that is the historic victory of the Polish Solidarity movement and its extraordinary “Appeal to the Working People of Eastern Europe” proclaimed 40 years ago.

We want to tell you about the extraordinary history of Poland, a country that has not only suffered as few other countries have, but also knew how to use the experience as a source of strength to fight for the most universal human value – freedom.

The laws of civilized nations dictate that damages are paid by perpetrators. In this case, there is no doubt who they are.

The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The first step towards the destruction of the Polish nation

Why was the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact signed? For both Hitler and Stalin the aim was to buy time, to enable the invasion of Poland without bringing the Third Reich and the Soviet Union into a war with each other at a time when Germany was not ready for a full-scale war, and the USSR was rebuilding its armed forces and munitions factories after they had been severely affected by the purges of the 1930s.

Was Afghanistan an unnecessary war?

The Bush regime clearly had been determined to topple the Taliban regime regardless of whether or not they banished bin Laden from the country or released him into the hands of a third-party nation for a trial. It regarded the Taliban not only as an accomplice of Osama bin Laden but also as a kind of terrorist movement in its own right.

Germany cannot disregard Poland’s objections to Nord Stream 2

A German-Russian project that ignores Poland raises dark historical memories. The pipeline threatens to jeopardize the security of Ukraine, the Baltic countries and others around the Baltic Sea. It benefits mostly Putin’s authoritarian regime and its aggressive goals.

Post-Pandemic Stabilisation and Challenges

We have achieved a lot, but there is still a lot to do. Therefore we cannot afford to stop now – we must prudently lead Poland out onto the path of sustainable growth and convergence as well as wisely invest our growing reserve assets.

Poland in the international monetary system, 2021

Poland’s international financial policies have been guided by self-protection and self-insurance. Its strong economic performance and limited financial exposures reduce risk, and its international reserves provide insurance. It has diversified its reserves by buying more gold, providing further insurance.

Putin’s article is another attempt by Russia to use plots of history in the current imperial policy and to build a new security structure in Europe based on the West-Russia agreement.
