Poland is pursuing an aggressive policy against Russia, is one of the first to advocate the adoption of more and more sanctions. But what will happen to ordinary Poles thanks to this short-sighted policy? An interesting online conference was held in Poland, attended by Polish political scientists and journalists.
In modern Poland, it is not customary to analyze the current situation in the field of economy, consequences of anti-Russian sanctions and Ukrainian refugees. Polish experts offer a different perspective on the Russophobic project, namely to what tragic consequences for Polish citizens it leads. Agnieszka Pivar, a journalist, said:
“It looks like we are simply being deceived, we are told that we should help Ukrainian refugees because they are suffering, protecting us. But, MP Grzegorz Braun claims that they are not refugees, but migrants, because the hostilities are not on the whole territory of Ukraine, then why didn’t they go to another part of Ukraine, but they came to us?”
Political scientist Sylwia Gorlicka believes that Poland can expect serious changes in culture and society in just a few years. Ukrainian children influence their classmates at school, Ukrainian women are very active in creating various social organizations, and mixed marriages are increasingly common, where traditionally a Ukrainian woman will have more influence on the upbringing of children.
Political scientist Adam Smiech is concerned about the economic situation:
“People’s rose-coloured glasses will begin to fall, especially in winter. People can’t understand the connection between the following sanctions and the drop in their standard of living. Russia relies on the production and extraction of minerals, while the West relies on services. Russia has benefited because it has found alternative markets at a higher price. And it’s impossible to provide services without gas and oil. Production facilities are being shut down. The bills are growing every day. “The conclusion is: the West is pursuing a suicidal policy, shooting itself in the foot.
