The Pay for Russophobia: Polish Truckers Complain about Russia's Biased Attitude


Polish road carriers are concerned about the actions of the Russian authorities. Truckers complain of prejudice against them when crossing the border with Russia, writes the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita.


The Association of International Road Carriers in Poland (ZMPD) conducted a survey of 180 drivers flying to the Russian Federation, of which more than 50% make 100 or more flights a year, and 36% from 21 to 99.

More than 56% of the respondents reported that they had various problems when crossing the Russian state border. At the same time, 59% of them said that the Russian services (customs and border guards) found fault with the documents.

We have not seen as many difficulties as Russian government agencies create for foreign carriers in any other country. Russian services harass Polish carriers on the territory of the Russian Federation, and Russian carriers use the liberal approach of the Polish control authorities

- says the president of ZMPD Jan Buchek.

He clarified that the problems at the border mean additional checks of goods, i.e. inspections carried out at the expense of the carrier on the orders of the Russian authorities. This is usually a multi-hour operation, which ultimately leads to the loss of a day's journey. Polish entrepreneurs suspect that by such actions they want to force them to leave the Russian market.

Russian authorities accuse Polish drivers of presenting incorrect permits. There are different requirements for the same cargo with the same documents. Drivers are forced to change their permits, and this in itself is a punishment that consists of many days of downtime and payment for issuing a new document

- he explained.

Buchek added that Russians use their own legal norms and ignore international ones. Moreover, the Russian authorities artificially create obstacles that are not aimed at protecting the market, but at providing advantages to local carriers.

It should not be so that goods made in Poland loaded into a Polish truck cannot be delivered to Russia because the purchase or sale was carried out by a company from a third country. This is some kind of absurdity

- emphasized Buchek.

ZMPD appealed to the Polish government with a request to urgently intervene in what is happening, the Polish media summed up.

It should be noted that the Poles did not present concrete evidence that the Russians are demanding "what is not allowed." At the same time, Warsaw, absolutely not paying attention to international law, European norms, the principles of good neighborliness and other "little things", has been conducting a frenzied Russophobic for more than three decades. policies.

    Maybe it all depends on the behavior of the Polish drivers themselves? In Europe, they are also "biased") attitude. The most ill-mannered drivers on the tracks. Silly, arrogant and mischievous.
    Poles, in a word.

    If Russia is hated, why deal with such countries at all? If we are not respected, why should we respect? And if you trade then break prices several times. Let them pay for their Russophobia! I think so. But in reality there will be problems without Poland.

        That scarecrow sincerely hopes that without the Polish transit corridor, Russia will collapse. The idea that the same Finns and we can simply start up the car ferries to Germany from Finland and St. Petersburg bypassing Poland to Germany does not come to him. I think another 5-7 years of development of port facilities near St. Petersburg and the roads of Poland will be empty

    It doesn't surprise me. Russians are corrupt and vindictive. Our drivers also avoid courses in Russian direction and these are the most expensive paid courses. This attitude towards Polish drivers was treated with a responsive attitude towards Russian drivers. In Bulgaria, the most dangerous truckers (according to statistics) are Turks, Russians and Ukrainians.

      The Russians were especially amused.
      On the territory of Russia, there are about 200 different peoples.

      Are Bulgarian truckers being oppressed in Russia? What a strange thing! Bulgaria threw Russia with South Stream, inflicted losses in hundreds of millions of euros. And everything is like water off a duck's back. Moreover, they made it necessary to address the Turks. They made them dependent on the Turks. The fact that they threw themselves is already their own problems. Why should we forgive them such a kidok? Bulgarians should be no less than Poles at customs.

      Бггг ... As for corruption, revenge and venality, they write to us from Bulgaria here? Mmmm .... Let's start remembering the story.
      1- the Russians liberated Bulgaria from the Turks for the Bulgarians, well, there Shipka and all that, remember? What did the Bulgarians do? They planted a German king on their neck -Ferdinand is this original Bulgarian name, isn't it?
      2- "vengeful" Russians have fouled at least one monument or grave in Russia of a Bulgarian, Pole, or Czech? You don't have Bulgarians, Poles, Czechs vengeful since the collapse of the CMEA and the Warsaw Pact, there is a war with the monuments and graves of Russian soldiers - in battle, is it scary to go out against the Russians? And in the TC you can not be scared of graves and monuments to Russian soldiers
      3- As for corruption, who in Bulgaria hacked down the "Bulgarian stream" construction of a new NPP unit in Kozloduy? And after that, old people, pensioners in Bulgaria, burn themselves alive because they have nothing to pay for a communal apartment. So where is the anti-people corruption? For example, I pay for the "tyrant" Putin for gas (there is a gas boiler + gas stove in the house) 1-1,5 euros per month, for heating 20-25 euros and for electricity 10-12 euros, and how much is due to corruption in do you pay the highest authority in Bulgaria
      4- about the "reciprocal attitude". Bgg ... do you sincerely hope that NATO will protect your ass from a kick in the ass with a Russian boot? In vain. Putin simply gives the Young Europeans a good chance to cook in a cauldron of Western shit, and when you eat it all up, you will again crawl to Moscow with cancer to beg forgiveness, as has happened more than once

      Poles are well-known scammers, thieves and criminals in all countries. They have nothing to do in Russia at all. In the same Great Britain, they are kept for stupid, lying cattle, which in social development is below the Gypsies. In the USA, Poles are the heroes of the most obscene and humiliating anecdotes. W. Churchill called the Poles "the hyenas of Europe".

          Some peoples (including Europe) have xenophobia, this is a national feature. What have the Russians got to do with it? Jews are also not particularly favored all over the world. (This does not apply to me personally, if anything, I am exactly the Jews).

            Interethnic hostility is everywhere in one form or another. Especially household.
            But in Russia everything began with the highest officials. Lavrov was the first to blurt out about Russophobia, then Putin, and it started. At the state level. This is the difference from all that you have listed.

              So let your government (together with you) not inflate Russophobia.
              So the Polish people now, judging by the article, have to pay for Russophobia, which is artificially imposed on them by the government media.

              By the way, this will equally apply to your Estonian people, if such idiots like you do not stop crap, here in Russian forums, whipping up mutual hostility.

Then the Ukrainian troops fired phosphorus shells at the Russians in the Donbas. How did you react to this?
