|Some questions for our Russian posters. The West seems determined to use Ukraine as a buffer zone; is Poland actively acting as the US proxy in this matter?
I ask the question, not only because of the large Polish population in the Ukraine (esp. around Liev) but also because it would fundamentally be in Poland's interests to do so; Poland has the means and the motivation to influence the Ukraine in this way. The recent incidents / kidnappings among Polish and Russian diplomats seem to evidence a certain tension between the two countries.
If the western strategy is to hem in, strangle and blockade Russia, then Ukraine and Poland are key in this effort. Will Poland and the West succeed in their plan and if so, how?
