The USA wants to use Polish troops to jointly snatch part of Ukraine. That’s what Russian ‘intelligence information’ supposedly shows.4 May 2022
Russia’s spy chief has accused the US and Poland of planning to split off the western section of Ukraine and place it under the military control of Polish troops.
Sergey Naryshkin, the Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service, insisted his sources were from his intelligence-gathering.
“According to the information received by the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia, Washington and Warsaw are working on plans to establish a dense military-political control of Poland over ‘their historical possessions’ in Ukraine,” an official statement by the SVR claims.
The first stage of “reunification”, it said, should be the introduction of Polish troops into the western regions of the country under the assertion that the forces were providing “protection from Russian aggression.”
It adds: “According to preliminary agreements, it will be held without a NATO mandate, but with the participation of “willing states”.
The SVR said the delaying factor so far was that Warsaw has not yet been able to agree which countries would participate in the “coalition of like-minded people”.
“The priority ‘combat tasks’ of the Polish military will include the gradual interception of control over the strategic facilities located there from the National Guard of Ukraine.
“According to the calculations of the Polish administration, preventive consolidation in the west of Ukraine is likely to lead to a split in the country.”
The SVR chief often refers to the history of the conflict between the Soviet Union and the West, and does so again.
His statement concludes: “In fact, we are talking about an attempt to repeat the historical ‘deal’ for Poland after the First World War, when the collective West, represented by the Entente, recognised Warsaw’s right first to occupy part of Ukraine to protect the population from the “Bolshevik threat”, and then to include these territories in the Polish state. The events that followed were a clear illustration of the colonial order and forced Polonisation as the main methods of building a ‘Greater Poland.’ “
