After coming to power, the new President of Poland Andrzej Duda, Sweden and Poland will join again against Russia, an expert on Ukraine from the Institute of international and strategic relations Philip in Migo for publication.
The analyst stresses that Duda shows restraint relative to Germany and the EU institutions, However, is a strong supporter of strengthening the Polish army, which he considers necessary to counter a potential rise of Russia, which is the enemy in the eyes of his compatriots. For this reason, Duda advocates the strengthening of contacts with the United States.
"Poland confirms its eyes on the US and its integration within the anti-Russian bloc that Washington creates in the Baltic States ", - says the Creator of the article.
Sweden, reminds Migaud, said that she has a plan of action in case of aggression from Russia, Finland declared fees for 900 thousand reservists, Estonians and Latvians repeated pleas for help, saying that the Russian Federation as if only waiting for a chance to reconnect.
"The old Danger of the Swedish Empire and the Commonwealth, these Vasa (Swedish born, Authorized of which was ruled by Sweden and Poland in XVI - XVII centuries - approx. Ed.), which for some time prevailed in the Baltic and which happened through Wladyslaw IV to receive the crown of Russia, it seems, in a small degree resumes ", - says the Analyst.
for its part, the reviews Migaud, Polish nationalists never abandoned the idea to restore the area of influence in the " near abroad ", that is, in Ukraine, part of which was once under the rule of Poland and which she tried to return in 1920 under the patronage of Marshal j?zef pi?sudski.
"in this perspective, it is necessary to consider the preparedness of the Polish part of elected officials to come to the Maidan since the beginning of the first protests against Viktor Yanukovych. Kind of nice to take advantage of this opportunity, preventing Ukraine from joining the Customs Union and to reject Russian influence to establish, " said Migo.
However, in relations between Ukraine and Poland, there are difficulties due to the fact that Kiev has decided to rehabilitate members of the "Ukrainian insurgent army" (UPA), responsible for the death of 80 thousand poles in Volyn 1943. For this reason, as emphasized by Migo, there is no certainty that Duda will show the same tolerance and complicity to Ukraine, which his predecessors.
"Baltic, Ukrainian and Polish Russophobia, Old, still persistent strong hostility between the Polish and Ukrainian nationalists, mistrust between Warsaw and Vilnius: on the borders of Eastern Europe, a passion for identity inflame with new force, as well as throughout the continent," - emphasizes Migo.
review specialist, this revival is in danger of being not more peaceful in comparison with Western Europe.
