You make a fair point Crow, that I find surprising given your positive attitudes to Russia (from what I have seen of your posts on here).
i think that i have fair and balanced opinion on Russia`s historical role, that was sometimes positive and sometimes negative, from general or specific point of view. Right now, Russia`s role is positive.
But, i didn`t point on Russia, when above mentioned Lech Kaczyński. Russia had (have) interest to reconcile with Poland and back then to show respect to Lech Kaczyński. i am sure that NATO and EU leading powers must be behind Lech`s assassination. Russia and even China shows clear interest in formation of new Commonwealth (ie Intermarium) around Poland. i understand that. First of all, Russia and China (as was Yugoslavia) are in favor of multi-polar world. Second, it is much better for Russia to have strong Poland (ie Intermarium) behind western Russian border, then to have super-strong and deeply anti-Slavic EU (and in a future, totally De-slavicized Poland in it, if just Poland stays long enough within EU). So Russia have interest in partial dissolution of EU.
See, Polish elite also had interests to reconcile with Russia (and China). If they wanted to escape certain assimilation of Poles within EU and to create Intermarium around Poland, they needed at least Russian understanding for that. i am absolutely positive that it was primary reason for Lech Kaczyński to travel to Russia. But, his intentions were seen as threat to NATO and EU and he was assassinated without mercy.
Now, Duda emerging as politician from within same political stock as was Lech Kaczyński. You think that NATO and EU want that? No, they don`t. If you want my opinion, Duda is alreday half dead. If CIA wants to kill him he can`t escape and for sure can`t expect to avoid inevitable by simple switching to night visits to Kaczyński. But, CIA obviously isn`t sure what to do or alreday decided to let him to live. Those are other forces that may want Duda dead now. Forces from with Germanic world and maybe even from Britain (because i think that right now USA opinion on Intermarium may differ from the British). So, some secret service wants Duda alive and some want him dead. In that situation, it may be reasonable from Duda to have security measures such are movements and actions at late night. Those measures may save you when you are hunted by some and protected by some other secret services, now at a time of turmoils.
USA is on the way to accept Russian stance for necessity of multi-polar world. USA is here under pressure not only from Russia and China but, also from the Japan, India, Brazil and even from the traditionally loyal EU (ie western Europe).
Poland`s only hope is that USA found interest in survivor of Poland (ie Intermarium) and her transformation in one of global players, rather then to accept what is biggest traditional Germanic interest and that is total and final assimilation of Poles and destruction of Poland.
