“Russia will earn on our stubbornness”: Poles about the growing dependence on Moscow

Despite the veil of propaganda, ordinary Poles understand that they can’t leave Russia anywhere, no matter how hard the government in Warsaw tries. Another cause for concern was news that at the end of 2020 the first Belarusian nuclear power plant will be launched. It is being built by the Russian Atomstroyexport with the money that Moscow has given to Minsk as a loan.

The paradox of the situation is that the time is right for Minsk to repay a loan of $ 10 billion to Moscow, which means that impoverished Belarus will have to look for buyers of surplus electricity in the West, in Poland. Warsaw really does not want to acquire these cheap kilowatts, fearing to become dependent on the Russian Federation. And these fears are not groundless. The President of the Republic of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, most likely does not have the means to repay the loan and the new nuclear power plant can be transferred to Russia for debt. Why do the Poles have to buy electricity from the Russians they do not like.

However, they had almost no choice: a little earlier, the country abandoned coal from Russia (with the simultaneous suspension of the construction of the power unit of the thermal station in Ostroleka), then, gradually abandoning Russian gas, Poland is considering switching to electricity as the only alternative source. But in this industry, it turns out, a trap awaits. Ordinary Poles are very upset about this.

Readers of the Polish edition of Gazeta Wyborcza very willingly commented on the situation:

After so much effort in the quest for independence, one cannot return to Russia. And present Belarus is an appendage of Moscow!

- the user writes bajka49.

Coal from the Russian Federation, electricity, apparently, will be from a neighboring country, and everything else from China. We have a good "independence"

- says the pole with the nickname xerra1.

If energy is cheap, why not buy kilowatts in Belarus. In any case, cheaper and cleaner than our own coal energy. What is wrong with Russia earning on our stubbornness?

- wrote by andrzej-cc.

Russophobia of the Poles begins to tire. If profitable, then you need to buy electricity from a new neighboring nuclear power plant. That's all. Why is the Polish media, especially Gazeta Wyborcza, not worried about our complete dependence on the West?

- says mloda772.

And what does the government offer in return for frenzied hatred of Russians and Belarusians who are friends with them? Buying oil at a fabulous price and polluting the atmosphere with its combustion products? What nonsense is expressed at the top in such a difficult economics time. It's time to forget the feud and choose the best!

    Yes, let them do what they want. Arrogance, greed, ambition did not lead to anything good. For this, the Poles and go with a constantly flogged ass. Let them do what they want.

    Let the Poles buy expensive and less high-quality liquefied gas from America, and at the same time get warm with the mere thought that this gas is not Russian !!!

    The minds themselves have no mind; one must read what clever people said at different times.
    Here Bismarck said: "Geography is destiny." And Poland has been arguing with geography throughout its history, it doesn't like its neighbors. Only now, geography punishes Poland, periodically throws it out of the map.
    And economics is a useful science. Great Britain has traditionally disgusting relations with Russia. But, despite the fantasies about the Novice, 75% of the coal that the WB imports (its own coal has long run out) is of Russian origin. And they don’t remember anything about politics. Because, politics is politics, and grandmas are above all.

    The Third Rome DOES NOT PAY TO TRAITORS. The Poles had a chance at least not to crap.
