This is how Sergey Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, commented on the Washington and Warsaw agreements on expanding the US military presence in the republic by deploying a squadron of American reconnaissance drones MQ-9 in Poland, purchasing fighters and increasing military contingent.
“The American War Party continues to sow distrust and confrontation in relations between the United States and Russia, activating its subversive activities at precisely those moments when prospects for negotiations between the leaders of our countries are outlined,” the parliamentarian believes.
He also stressed: “It is obvious that the Polish authorities do not have enough existing numbers of the American and NATO contingent to cope with their complexes. We are witnessing a frank US military intervention in eastern Europe, to the borders with Russia. The Americans are expanding the Alliance’s presence in Europe with the help of the compromising policies of individual European countries that are ready to give up sovereignty in making political decisions. A good example is the intention of the Polish authorities to purchase expensive US liquefied gas, to the detriment of its own economy and the interests of citizens, ”the politician emphasized.
“Washington is struggling to retain its influence in Europe. The United States clearly fails to strengthen economic cooperation with European countries. Washington’s rude actions and economic blackmail do not foster partnerships. To maintain control over the region, the United States uses conflicting links in the European partnership, such as Poland, who are ready to blindly fulfill the will of the overseas patron, submitting both in energy, defense and foreign policy, ”the deputy said.
