In Osteuropa 1-2/2016

Bravo, Kachinskii, Molodets!
Law and Justice Tends to Moscow’s Business

Sławomir Sierakowski

Deutsche Fassung


Jarosław Kaczyński and his followers believe that they are finally making a leading actor in European policy out of Poland. However, with the country’s departure from the principles of liberal democracy and the weakening of ties to the European Union, they are tending to Putin’s business. Russian publicists already see an “ideological community” of Warsaw and Moscow. Of all people, those who most talk of patriotism are pursuing a policy that harms the country most. In Poland, the party Law and Justice is the Russian party.
