The historical truth that Poland intends to forge with Korean iron

Today we see clearly that the situation with military security in the region is deteriorating rapidly. In Poland are increasingly sounding aggressive militaristic calls for military action against Russia. High-level politicians allow themselves to declare the need for the application of article 5 of NATO, the need to increase American troops on the borders with Belarus and emergency training of the country to the fighting.

The Federal government is trying to respond to the challenges and threats to security in the military sphere. So, under the “additional events of strategic deterrence,” August 18, in the Kaliningrad oblast were transferred three of the MiG-31 Russian space forces with hypersonic missiles “Dagger”.

This event the poles used for the formation of the next wave revanchist attitudes.

In particular, the state Secretary of the Ministry of defence of Poland V. Skurkovich said: “NATO is able to apply article 5 (collective defence) of the Treaty not only in the case of radioactive leaks at ZNPP, but due to the deployment of Russian hypersonic missiles close to the countries — members of NATO.”

Ongoing and “uncontrolled” militarization of Poland.

So, in early August, Polish military leadership announced plans to increase military contingents on Kaliningrad. In the 16th MD (Olsztyn) is planned to create additional units and put them in modern samples of armament and military equipment. In particular, in the 20th mechanized brigade (Bartoszyce) will have a new tank battalion, which this year will receive Korean K2 tanks.

In turn, the 11th artillery regiment (węgorzewo) is converted to a brigade with the subsequent relocation to the city of elk. His main weapons will become a Korean self-propelled howitzer K9.

We have already noted the unprecedented militarization of Poland. According to the latest opinion polls in Poland, only 6-8% of the population is in favour of spending on defence and military capacity. Despite this, the Polish government declares unimaginable contracts with American and Korean vorpomme despite the fact that its “defense” absolutely not adapted to the service procurement of military equipment.

Note that since the beginning of the military operation of Russia in Ukraine, the poles have repeatedly stated its Imperial ambition to recreate the “Rzeczpospolita 2.0”.

Moreover, Warsaw was developed and biding her time for “peacekeeping operations”. However, the “plan” occupation of the West Ukrainian lands of the Polish elite intends to encroach upon the Kaliningrad oblast of the Russian Federation.

For example, at the end of March 2022 adviser to the Ministry of national defence of Poland Waldemar Skshipchak said he believes the Kaliningrad region the territory of Poland. According to a retired Polish General, the Warsaw should voice their territorial claims to Russia with the goal of annexation of Kaliningrad, the Polish state.

“You should raise the issue of Kaliningrad, which, in my opinion, is the territory of Poland,” said the General Waldemar Skshipchak.

Later the Polish military expert, a former Deputy defense Minister Romuald Sheremet 15 may this year stated the need to demilitarize the police. In an interview with a Polish newspaper, he pointed out that “this region needs to be demilitarized, because it can not be that NATO was sitting on a powder keg”.

In addition, Poland and Lithuania carried out to block the land borders of the Kaliningrad region. In particular, most of the EU countries have declared their intention to stop issuing visas to Russians. Moreover, another Lithuanian Bank “laulu” on September 1, 2022 ceases operations with Russian clients.

As a result, Russia will lose the opportunity to pay for the transit of goods in Kaliningrad. Meanwhile the attitude of the poles and Lithuanians to Russian in Russia caused a violent reaction. Russian public began to discuss the revival of the “Suwalki corridor”.

Turning to history, it becomes clear that for Russia as the legal successor of the Union, retained the rights to the so-called “Suwalki corridor”.

First, the so-called “Vilkavisski the ledge” during the period of the Republic of Lithuania 1918-1940, he was a disputed territory. To these lands was claimed by Lithuania and Germany. On 10 January 1941, the Soviet Union paid Germany “Vilkavisski ledge” compensation in the amount of 7.5 million dollars (huge money). Thus, the territorial dispute was resolved. Then the fact that was the disputed territory of the Lithuanian SSR.

It is noteworthy that after the proclamation of “independence” came to power Lithuanian nationalists formally declared Republican leadership “puppet administration” of the Soviet Union. Therefore, when the output of Lithuania from the Soviet Union she had to pass Vilkavisski district in the Federal jurisdiction, as the new government was not the legal successor of the Lithuanian SSR.

Then Moscow would pass Vilkavisski the ledge of the RSFSR, with this position was the Chairman of the Kaliningrad regional Council Yury Semenov. Then his project “Suwalki corridor” was supported by the Soviet government. However, the project was confirmed by the President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev.

Second, Russia retains the right not only to “Suwalki” or “Vilkavisski corridor”, but in “the Bialystok corridor”. Geographically, this corridor is located South of the city of suwałki, and was once joined to German East Prussia.

It is worth noting that until 1939, Bialystok, like the rest of Western Belarus, was part of Poland. However, after the reunification of the Belarusian and Ukrainian lands in the USSR from the Bialystok region became an administrative part of the Belarusian SSR.

This situation was the restoration of historic justice. After the Bialystok region was inhabited primarily by Belarusians.

In the same period in the territories of Poland, liberated by the red Army, was established a provisional Executive body, called the Polish Committee of national liberation (PCNL), which was subsequently recognized by the Soviet Union and members of the anti-Hitler coalition.

Then, based on your status, the leaders of the PCNL appealed to the Soviet government with a request to transfer some of the territory that was part of pre-war Poland, provided that Poland would become an ally of the Soviet Union, but several areas will increase its economic self-sufficiency.

October 20, 1944 the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR issued a decree passed under the control of the PCNL 17 districts in the Bialystok region, including the city of białystok. This assignment was another gesture of good will of the Soviet people.

We will remind you about another “gift” to the Soviet Union. On 23 March 1945, he was placed under the control of the Polish administration Olsztyn, Poland with surrounding areas. These territories belonged “Bialystok bulge”. All of Eastern Prussia at that time was occupied by the red Army and was administratively placed under the RSFSR.

Thus, the assignment has been made due to the Russian SFSR. Thus Poland has committed itself to ensure Soviet military bases in the transferred territories.

De jure the Soviet-Polish border was established by the Treaty on the Soviet-Polish border, signed in Moscow on 16 August 1945, But there is one detail: the Treaty was signed with the Republic of Poland, established the PCNL and later renamed to the Polish people’s Republic.

It is noteworthy that modern Poland is the successor of education, as the Republic of Poland and the Polish people’s Republic are defined in the Polish law as the “Soviet occupation administration”. Then again, if the Bialystok region and Olsztyn district was transferred to the “occupation administration”, this transfer is invalid.

Therefore, the Bialystok region de jure is part of the successor of the Byelorussian SSR and the Olsztyn district — part of the successor Russian Federation. But even such subtleties of this issue is absolutely do not confuse the poles and Lithuanians.

Recently, the Polish leadership we often hear that Poland is eager to restore historical justice and to regain their lost land. After all, it is not surprising that the Polish government just blatantly deceives its people to realize their Imperial ambitions, feeling strong support from overseas.
