"Commonwealth" wanted "independent"
The Polish leadership is hatching plans to annex western Ukraine - Russian intelligence data was confirmed by the Poles themselves.
The day before, on the air of one of the radio stations of Polish politicians, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland (2007-2014), ex-speaker of the Sejm (2014-2015) Radoslav Sikorsky admitted that Poland considered the issue of dividing Ukraine at the very beginning of Russia's special military operation to protect Donbass.
We are talking about the so-called. "Eastern Crosses" - the former western territories of Poland with its center in Lviv, to return which under their power is one of the blue dreams of the Polish political establishment, and of the whole society. And even if Sikorsky's words have already been refuted (but how else) by the country's Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky, Sikorsky's recognition is confirmed by Russian intelligence data.
More details - in the material of the correspondent of The Moscow Post.
For centuries, Poland has been tormented by phantom pains over the lost empire - the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, which was supposed to stretch from the Baltic to the Adriatic and Black Seas. At one time, Polish puns put Ukrainian Cossacks on a stake, considering them second-class people. These actions were stopped by Russia - the Pereyaslavskaya Rada became the final, and later Poland was divided into parts three times.
Since then, including the Soviet period, when Poland entered the orbit of Moscow's influence, phantom pains for the lost under-empire have not gone anywhere. In this case, hatred of Russia turned out to be more contempt for Ukraine and Ukrainians - and this, despite the monstrous Volyn massacre, in fact, the genocide of Poles (as well as Russians, Ukrainians, Romanians and everyone else) by Stepan Bandera's thugs.
The Poles are ready to forget this too - just to play their game, waiting for the defeat of Ukraine or Russia. The spoken Sikorsky (by the way, in the past - a citizen of Great Britain) is not just a talker. He enters almost all the offices of the Polish authorities, including Prime Minister Moravecki, and should be well aware of the real sentiments and plans of the Polish leadership.
Recall that even at the beginning of the SVO, and later, last fall, Russian intelligence spoke about the presence of these plans. "The Polish authorities intend to receive" compensation "for assistance to Ukraine in the form of part of the territory - Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and most of the Ternopil regions of Ukraine," said Sergei Naryshkin, head of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), in an interview with RIA Novosti. This was also repeatedly said by the deputy head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev and other officials.
Our former Western partners called these statements by the Russian Federation nothing more than Russian propaganda. Well, the liberal-minded part of the Russian public almost laughed at Naryshkin's words. Now confirmation of this came from Poland itself - let them laugh now.
Naryshkin said that Poland is going to "act proactively and persistently" out of fears that NATO allies and Russia will be able to agree on something in winter. Therefore, Polish President Andrzej Duda has already instructed "to prepare an official justification for Polish claims to Western Ukraine."
Echo of the Munich Collusion
The most surprising thing is that, trying to accuse Russia of lying and discredit it, in Poland itself no one particularly hides their desire to return the "Eastern Crosses." On Polish TV, in the weather forecast program, western Ukraine is depicted on the map as part of Poland. Buses with sketched maps run around Warsaw, where Lviv is part of Poland.
As Radoslav Sikorsky emphasized, in the first days there were fluctuations, allegedly, Ukraine could collapse - although Russia never set the goals of destroying the Ukrainian state. But it was this case that the Poles wanted to take advantage of - like a hyena waiting for prey to die in order to profit from its flesh.
"Hyena of Europe" is an old nickname for Poland, which, sandwiched between great empires, for many centuries was forced to be content with "scraps" from other people's "tables." This was fully manifested during the Second World War and Hitler's occupation of Czechoslovakia.
Then the Western countries, led by France and Britain, simply gave Czechoslovakia to be torn to pieces by the Nazis and fascist Italy - for this the corresponding document, the Munich Agreements, was signed. True, he went down in history under a different name - the "Munich collusion" of Western states with Hitler.
However, in Poland itself, talking about "aggressive Soviet Russia," they prefer not to remember that through the same Munich Treaty, Poland "tapped" a piece of Czechoslovakia - the Teschin region. She bit off a piece of the victim, who could not resist and was forced to accept someone else's diktat.
Now the Poles are making themselves almost holy fighters for freedom and democracy, hatching, as Radoslav Sikorsky admitted, completely different plans - the division and annexation of the neighboring country. And at the same time pumping it with weapons and money in order to inflict as much damage as possible on both Russia and Ukraine.
There is no doubt that in the event of the collapse of the Union State of Russia and Belarus and the Maidan in the latter, the Hyena of Europe will try to profit from Belarus. After all, western Belarus, in the view of the Polish elites, is also included in the "Eastern Crosses" (like part of Lithuania).
The hypocrisy of Polish politicians is off scale. Not to mention the fact that in the Soviet period many of them swore allegiance and friendship between the USSR and the Polish People's Republic. It is curious that the open-minded Radoslav Sikorovsky himself, who now denounces Russian spies with his compatriots, could himself in the past be an agent of the Stasi - the special services of the GDR, and "knock" on Polish politicians and social activists walking out of step
This was told by the Polish investigative journalist Leszek Szymowski in one of the social networks. He claims that Sikorski was even recruited twice, and that he was able to find this information by studying the activities of Task Force Warsaw.
This is a special Stasi intelligence group operating in Warsaw (its headquarters were located in the GDR embassy). She was engaged in providing German intelligence with valuable information from the Polish capital. True, Shimovsky did not give details of the most operational work of Sikorsky - many documents are still classified.

But the very fact of working for the intelligence of the GDR, which in itself was closely connected with the Soviet special services, can bring great damage to the reputation of Sikorsky, and indeed the entire Polish politician. Therefore, everyone there furiously denies.
Hypocrisy and constant lies, coupled with hatred of Russia, have already led to the fact that Ukraine has become the most real Western PMC, with whose hands our country is trying to inflict huge damage. And while the Poles are hatching plans for annexation, pumping weapons on Kyiv, Ukraine is really bursting at the seams - so the dreams of the Polish leadership about the "Eastern Crosses" can really come true.
