Under the radar, the Polish Avenger series now includes president of the central bank picking a deep state DE "plot" to expropriate antebellum ancestral lands in lieu of paying WWII reparations. Never mind, flouting accumulated EU infringment fines. vdL may have met her match in the ill-conceived solidarity department.

Poland's central bank chief warns of German designs on Polish territory
[Glapiński] warned that Berlin's designs are being pushed by Donald Tusk, the leader of Civic Platform, Poland's main opposition party, and a former Polish prime minister and president of the European Council.

"For a year it's been said that the task set by Brussels for Tusk is not only for him to overthrow Poland's existing government and put our country on course for the eurozone," Glapiński said. "Once these tasks are accomplished, Tusk is to return to Brussels, become head of the European Commission and pursue an accelerated effort to build a European state."

It's all part of a broader scheme by Berlin to exert control over the Continent, warned Glapiński, a close friend of Poland's de facto leader Jarosław Kaczyński and head of the National Bank of Poland since 2016. In an earlier interview, Glapiński said: "Tusk was sent with a plan to incorporate Poland into the German European empire." ...

MENAFN | [FM Zbigniew Rau]: optional use of euro, 23 Aug
The foreign minister declared that "the equality of member states requires the restoration of equal opportunities for their development, which, in turn, should lead to the reform of the Eurozone. The radicalism of this reform cannot a priori exclude any solutions, such as ... a temporary or permanent return of some of the Eurozone member countries to national currencies."

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Poland's current Law and Justice Party, has repeatedly claimed that adopting the euro would cause the nation's citizens to become drastically poorer

Ukriform | Zelensk* opens Alley of Courage near Verkhovna Rada, 23 Aug
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky took part in the opening ceremony together with President of Poland Andrzej Duda, whose name was the first to appear on the Alley, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Today I want to open the Alley of Courage in the presence of President of Poland Andrzej Duda. The name of President of Poland Andrzej Duda will always be on this alley. It is a symbol of courage, a symbol of friendship, a symbol of support for Ukraine when it is really needed," Zelensky said.

Ukraine Gate | For friends of Ukraine: Zelenskyy and Duda opened the Alley of Courage in Kyiv, 23 Aug
The alley was laid on the occasion of the 31st anniversary of Ukraine's independence. As noted, the place was not chosen by chance. It was on the Constitution Square opposite the Verkhovna Rada that modern independent Ukraine was born.
Andrzej Duda played a particularly important role in strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities in the early days of a full-scale Russian invasion. He arrived in Ukraine, called Russia's actions an unprecedented violation of international law and stressed that by doing so it excludes itself from the international community.

Poland was one of the first EU countries to become a new home for millions of internally displaced persons from Ukraine. The Polish government and the Sejm have simplified as much as possible the procedures for crossing the border and further including Ukrainians in a friendly European community.
