Come back to Poland and tell people that. Please.
I do. I'm not afraid of sharing my thoughts. Everyone that knows me knows I'm a fan of Putin. Actually many Poles view Putin as a strong leader and are jealous that the US doesn't have leaders with balls anymore. Trump is better than the wussy Obama, but still no match for Putin. Putin emphasizes patriotism, the family unit, and Christianity. Certain policies and laws show that. He is a man's man. While Russia undoubtedly has problems, it has come a very long way under Putin's leadership. The Russia of today and the USSR/90's and early 2000's Russia are way different entities.
To me, I would like nothing more than Poland and Russia, along with all Slavic nations for that matter, to put old B.S. aside and form closer ties as we are all Slavic Christian brothers and sisters afterall. We all share a similar language, culture, and religion. This fighting of Poland/Ukraine/Russia/Serbia/etc to me is awful and totally divisive of the Slavic world.
I wonder sometimes what type of Pole helped sell.the country out to the CCCP..... ones like you who respect 'balls of steel' over progress and western civilization.
You know nothing about me so don't pretend you do. If Russia and Poland ever went to war I would gladly lay down my life in defense of Poland. Poland is my motherland first and foremost and will always be against any sort of threats to its sovereignty, culture, traditions and its people. Nonetheless, I would like nothing more than Poland to form closer bonds with fellow Slavic nations. While it is unlikely atm, especially under PiS as Russophobia is a sort of state sponsored movement, I would prefer for Poland to have closer relations with fellow Slavs. Miedzymorze to me would be ideal as its unlikely that attitudes against Russia amongst EU Slavs will change.
As far as 'progress' and 'western civilization,' Russia as well as Slavs in general, are able to claim many 'firsts' in a wide variety of fields. The sort of 'progress' I see in the west is men turning their genitals inside out and being called heroes on magazine covers. The only progress happening in the west now is progressively destroying the family unit, Christianity, tradition, patriotism, and national identity.
