Born in Poland to Polish parents and lived most of his life in Poland: he was Polish.
Born on territories under Russian Rule, hard to say whether his patents were Polish or Russian. In Poland he lived as a free man about six years in total. Plus ten years in Polish prison. Soviet agent and communist - hardly Polish.
OK in some way yes... but what would you think If an Ukrainian
What are you even talking about? Ukrainians are on the verge of becoming a nation so far they are just ethnicity.
because their elites were first Polonized and Russificized for centuries and then murdered by the Soviets
I would say BS cause it is BS find another example if you can.
Sovietization of Poland was never truly successful,
In Poland there is group of people in prominent position and in finesses and business who are Soviet grew by Kremlin on the Polish soil. Soviet -isation doesn't have to be 100% when there is no counterweight to those people.
, there were many well qualified and non-Sovietized people in the 90's and anyway we made terrible mistakes
How do you know who was and who wasn't Soviet -Pole.
what's more we're still making them... just look what the red haired fecker is doing... and people let it happen
Mistakes? What mistakes? Do you think that all is just huge coincidence? Nope - there are people who have money organization influences and knowledge how to use it. Who there is to stop it? Few amateurs with notebooks?
and people let it happen.
sure they do in the adverse circumstances ruled by soviets and their cronies with money and mass media. People need to organize themselves and step up to their duties but first need to realize what what.
