My comment on the article The guards at the Poland-Belarus border kicked us like footballs by Maria Wilczek and Paulina Olszanka in The Times 13 November 2021.
These stories are impossible to verify.
During the 1980s children of Polish Communist party members were traveling abroad on tourist visas and asking for political asylum in Greece, Germany, Italy, and other places. They were among the most privileged in the Communist dictatorship. Then they moved to Canada, US, or stayed in western Europe. How were they allowed to stay, I don’t know. Western officials must have cried hearing stories of their alleged persecution.
People will say anything to elicit sympathy and obtain asylum.
The Polish government’s side collaborates with Russia. They are the same guys whose parents served the Communist dictatorship and benefited from it.
Polish defence minister Błaszczak was born in Legionowo near Warsaw, the town, where the main employer was the Communist Ministry of Internal Affairs, i.e. police and secret police. This was their training centre. Błaszczak’s parents were likely involved in it.
Poland has no ‘independent’ human rights groups or media. Deception runs deep in Poland. The targets of this game are people and governments of western countries.
