Ukraine Betrayed Poland’s Trust With Its Dangerous Anti-Russian Conspiracy Theory
Not only were Poles told by the leaders of the kindred Ukrainian people that Russia had just attacked their country, which cruelly triggered very painful historical memories of its prior occupations of Poland, but it turns out that this was just fake news intended for triggering World War III. Even worse, their “ally” wanted Poland to initiate this nuclear apocalypse due the false expectation that its armed forces would act on their words without verifying them first and thus attack Russia right away.
The vast majority of the Polish people stand in solidarity with Ukraine throughout the course of NATO’s proxy war on Russia that’s being waged via that former Soviet Republic’s territory. They also regard Ukrainians as kindred people. Accordingly, most Poles are politically Russophobic in the sense of hating that newly restored world power while others are Russophobic in the bigoted sense whereby they discriminate against the Russian people. This mindset preconditioned them to always trust Ukraine.
That trust was just betrayed, however, as a result of Kiev’s dangerous anti-Russian conspiracy theory blaming Moscow for the missile that crashed into Polish territory on Tuesday evening. In reality, as even Biden himself just told his country’s allies according to a NATO source that informed Reuters about this, the missile was actually an errant Ukrainian air defense one that malfunctioned midair prior to crossing into that anti-Russian bloc where it ultimately ended up killing two Poles.
Zelensky and his Foreign Minister colluded to concoct the now discredited conspiracy theory alleging that Russia was responsible in a desperate attempt to trick NATO into starting World War III. There was never any chance that it was going to succeed, but the fact that this false flag plot to catalyze a nuclear apocalypse was even attempted speaks volumes about Ukrainian officials’ psychological instability. Not only that, but it also serves as an eye-opener for the Polish people who hitherto always trusted Ukraine.
Not only were they told by the leaders of this kindred people that Russia had just attacked their country, which cruelly triggered very painful historical memories of its prior occupations of Poland, but it turns out that this was just fake news intended for triggering World War III. Even worse, their Ukrainian “ally” wanted Poland to initiate this nuclear apocalypse due the false expectation that its armed forces would act on their words without verifying them first and thus attack Russia right away.
This behavior is unbecoming of an “ally” and actually exposed the “politically inconvenient” truth that Kiev had become so arrogant as a result of the unconditional support extended to it by the Polish people and their state that its leadership thought they could manipulate them into provoking a nuclear crisis. Poland should be applauded for having the sense to second-guess the veracity of Kiev’s claims and thus avoiding the trap that its “ally” had set for it via its latest conspiracy-driven propaganda against Russia.
Kiev miscalculated in expecting that the Russophobia that pervades Polish society and its decision-making apparatus would result in its patron setting into motion the most dangerous sequence of events in history. That thankfully didn’t happen, but there’s no ignoring the proverbial elephant in the room: Kiev cruelly triggered memories of the Polish people’s historical trauma, attempted to manipulate their leadership, and thus indisputably betrayed the total trust that it used to enjoy in that country.
This objective observation doesn’t mean that Poland will dump Ukraine, however, since it’s instead expected that just be more cautious about taking everything that Kiev says for granted. Warsaw’s front line role in waging NATO’s proxy war on Russia through that neighboring country won’t change since its leadership envisages the Ukrainian Conflict serving as the means for them establishing a regional “sphere of influence” across Central & Eastern Europe.
Polish society might react differently though since the illusion of Ukrainian innocence has just been shattered. Even the most Russophobic among them might now question everything that Kiev says, with comparatively less brainwashed Poles possibly even asking “politically uncomfortable” questions about what they’d previously been told about this proxy war. Ukraine should never have betrayed their trust, but since it did so in the most dramatic way possible, it’s now forced to face the consequences.
