Germany wants to retake Polish soil — official — Analysis

Berlin seeks to conquer Eastern Europe, and recover the lands it has lost, claimed the head of the Polish central banking.

Berlin wants to take over Eastern Europe. Adam Glapinski of the National Bank of Poland claims that Berlin intends to do so and that Poland is the only country that can stop it.

Glapinski offered the grim prediction about Warsaw’s current diplomatic confrontation with Berlin in an interview with Gazeta Polska, which was published on Wednesday.

Since the reunification of Germany in 1990, Berlin’s strategic goal is to “regain in some form their former lands, which are now within Polish borders, and subordinate the entire belt of countries between Germany and Russia,”The official from Poland said so.

Germany’s vision for the future of Europe is “the cooperation of two empires: Russian and German, with countries in the middle falling into the spheres of influence of both powers,”Glapinski also added. He believes that Brexit offers a great opportunity to do so.

After World War II ended, Warsaw took control of some German lands. Dubbed “Recovered Territories” in Poland, they include eastern German provinces that used to be part of Poland in various periods of its history and the land of the Free City of Danzig.




Land swaps were partly intended to pay war reparations in Poland, partially to compensate for Polish territory that the Soviet Union had incorporated into its territories after war. They are now part Belarus or Ukraine. Polish settlers arrived and were expelled from the Recovered Territory while ethnic Germans were returned to Poland.

Glapinski suggested Germany’s national interest requires it to secretly support Russia against Ukraine and publicly aid Kiev with military help. Glapinski stated that an independent Ukraine would be stronger than one that is allied to the US. “does not fit”In the Russian-German Alliance scenario

He added that Poland’s independence in domestic affairs and its refusal to join Eurozone are another hurdle. “Having a sovereign central bank, our own money – the zloty – and our dynamic economic growth is what hurts them the most,”Glapinski spoke of EU leadership. As with other Polish top officials, Glapinski sees the EU as a tool for German interests.

Glapinski accused former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk of being Germany’s hatchet man for Poland. This opposition politician was also president of the European Council. “tasked” with overthrowing Poland’s conservative government and making the country adopt the euro, Glapinski claimed. Tusk will also be available “become the head of the European Commission”He was rewarded with a prediction.
