Russian intelligence claims that Poland does not intend to create a favorable environment to enable it to use its nuclear weapons. “peacekeeping” forces to Western parts of Ukraine, but is also trying to establish control over promising sectors of the Ukrainian economy, first and foremost – agriculture.
According to the SVR, Polish firms have taken advantage Ukrainian farmers’ difficult situation by purchasing their products at lower prices. This is leading some Ukrainian agricultural enterprises towards bankruptcy. According to the intelligence agency, these assets and lands will be purchased by Polish companies at bargain prices.
