NATO Democracy: Mateusz Piskorski to face 4th « trial » on February 7th

The 9th month of Mateusz Piskorski’s imprisonment is passing on his 39th birthday. Ahead of us tomorrow is yet another, already fourth hearing during which the Prosecutor and Internal Security Agency (ABW) will request the court to continue to keep Piskorski in prison.

It all started with a spectacular arrest when on Wilanowa street in Warsaw, where Piskorski was taking his children to school, two cars appeared out of which jumped masked officers with guns in their hands. Piskorski was arrested and simultaneously the offices of the party Zmiana were broken into and a confiscation and inspection of everything and everyone was carried out. Similar attacks were made on the apartments of the party’s leaders.

Soon after, the media reported that Piskorski was arrested on charges of spying for Iraq, China, and/or Russia. Yet no evidence for this has been presented.

Despite this, following a many-hours-long hearing, the ABW received court approval for temporarily imprisoning Piskorski. In issuing consent to the arrest, the court relied on undisclosed material supposedly indicating « high probability of the suspect committing a crime.”

To this day, the public does not know anything about these “reliable” materials, but this has not prevented the court from prolonging Piskorski’s imprisonment for months every quarter.

In the summer, the newspaper Wyborcza wrote that the motive of the arrest were plans by Piskorski’s party to protest the NATO summit in Warsaw. Piskorski was allegedly supposed to meet in Russia with Russian intelligence officers and collect money for organizing anti-NATO protests in Poland. The newspaper reported that the prosecutor had accused Piskorski of “trying to influence public opinion in Poland,” which turns out is something unacceptable for a politician to do.

In June, 12 European Parliament members, mainly from the GUE/NGL faction, wrote an open letter to Polish authorities demanding Piskorski’s release. The parliamentarians, outraged by Piskorski’s imprisonment, reminded the Polish authorities once again that “Poland as an EU member is obliged to respect the right to freedom of expression which is the basis of the European Charter of Fundamental Rights. This right includes the freedom to hold opinions and receive and disseminate information and ideas without interference by public authorities and regardless of state borders.”

Polish media weren’t interested in the publication of this letter. The fact that it was written went unnoticed. The Polish authorities similarly did not respond to the letter, but avoided it in silence.

A few moths later and after a few articles had been published on the case in the Polish and foreign press, the incident, like many others, was yet again met with silence.

Yet a man is still in prison and he still does not know what for.

In the democratic and free country which Poland wants to pass for, politicians and the media know very well that Piskorski is the first political prisoner of the ruling Law and Justice Party, who is being held in solitary confinement because of his views on Polish-Russian relations and strong opposition to Poland’s membership in NATO.

Demands for justice and observing the rule of law, however, are suppressed due to journalists’ fear of being accused of favoring the Kremlin. Some still have the courage to speak out, but lack the daring.

Today in Poland, being “pro-Russian” is the final “argument” that ends any substantive discussion.

Almost the entire journalist community has taken an opportunistic position. The Association of Polish Journalists, which has taken no position while Poland is violating the freedom of expression of a man for his views, had no problem several days ago when it issued a statement in defense of Roman Sushchenko, a Ukrainian journalist for Ukrinform who in August was arrested in Moscow on charges of espionage. This very same Sushchenko whose release is demanded by the Association of Polish Journalists, is according to the Russian FSB a professional officer of Ukrainian military intelligence with the rank of colonel. If this is true, then the credibility of the charges significantly increases. It’s pretty obvious that a professional spy’s job is spying. Nevertheless, the Association of Polish Journalists has expressed its unconditional solidarity with the arrested Ukrainian.

They lack this solidarity, however, when it comes to Piskorski or his colleague, Russia Today journalist Leonid Sviridov, who spent 18 years of his life here in our country. He was found “guilty” in a Kafkaesque trial for posing “danger” to our country without any presented evidence of “guilt”. For being “dangerous,” he was expelled from Poland in December 2015.

But Polish journalists also forgot about him.

If right after Piskorski’s arrest one could withhold judgement on the actions of the ABW until the proof of Piskorski’s guilt was presented, then now, 9 months after his arrest, which has been twice extended by 3 months, and with still no presentation of any evidence whatsoever of him committing a crime, there can be no doubt that we are dealing with political repression.

The disgrace and, frankly speaking, garbage and lack of professionalism of the secret services that have arrested a man and after 9 months can’t manage to present any charges – or drop any charges which could be called nothing more than unfounded allegations – raises fear over the state of Poland and the effects of the “good changes” proclaimed by the government.

On Tuesday, February 7th, the ABW will once again promise the court that it has evidence justifying “a high probability of the suspect’s committing a crime” and assert that continued “temporary” imprisonment is necessary…

Now, after so many months of this investigation involving so much money, so many people, and the costs incurred by taxpayers for this mindless mess, someone in the ABW might have to answer to their superiors for this lack of results. Only for them to reply that Piskorski must be imprisoned! Will the court once again persist and continue to take part in this fiasco? We’ll see.

The ABW was established in 2002 following the liquidation of the State Protection Office. In its place arose two new institutions: the ABW and the Intelligence Agency. The charter of the ABW puts high demands on its employees. It demands that they have “irreproachable moral, civic, and patriotic qualities.” It does not, however, have any requirements as to their IQ.

There’s the problem. With such special services and slackers, who have no high school diploma but only a sincere desire to be an officer and who think “first we arrest someone, then evidence will be found later,” we cannot feel safe.

« Donbas contact line surveyed by a US reconnaissance drone »

An American reconnaissance drone overflew the contact line in the Donbass for 10 hours. It was able to observe all the territory of the two self-proclaimed republics, plus the border regions of Russia.

A US strategic drone RQ-4A Global Hawk, with the call sign UAVGH000, carried out a reconnaissance flight Sunday that lasted nearly 10 hours over the contact line in the Donbass conflict zone, announced Western sites following the flights of military aviation.

During the flight, the drone followed the line of contact between Ukraine and the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk without crossing it. The reconnaissance aircraft flew at an altitude of 15,500 m (51,000 feet).
As the drone can do reconnaissance with a radius of 300 km, it was able to observe all the territory of the self-proclaimed republics, plus the border regions of Russia.

According to open sources, the craft is capable of patrolling for 30 hours at an altitude of 15,000 to 18,000 m.

The American aircraft took off from the base of Sigonella, Sicily, and overflew Romania.

Overflights of the contact line were also recorded on October 15, November 14, and 16 December 2 and 16.

RIA Novosti – translated by J. Arnoldski –

The Kremlin considers the American Fox News journalist Bill O’Reilly’s slander of Russian President Vladimir Putin unacceptable and expects an apology, says Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

While interviewing US President Donald Trump, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly asked about Trump’s respect for the leader of Russia. O’Reilly reminded Trump of the accusations which the West has leveled against Moscow and called President Putin a “killer.” In response, Trump said “Do you think our country is so innocent?”, emphasizing that it would be better for the United States to get along with Russia than not.

Peskov told journalists: “We believe such words by a Fox News correspondent to be unacceptable and offensive. And, honestly speaking, of course, we expect to receive an apology to the president from such an esteemed broadcaster.”

Putin’s press secretary did not comment on Trump’s response in the Fox News interview. “As for the statements of the US President, in this case I would leave them without comment, » he said.

While live on the TV channel “Inter,” Sergey Kaplin, a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, called on the Ukrainian population to prepare for a protracted war.

“Let’s resume preparations for the civil defense of our population. Today we should honestly tell our people that no Minsk Agreements, no negotiations, and no geopolitical shifts in the world will lead to a stabilization of the situation. We should learn to live in a state of war or semi-war for the next few years. The country should be prepared for these challenges,” Kaplin stated.

Kaplin was supported by international affairs analyst Aleksandr Sushko, who added: “We should honestly tell the people waiting who sincerely believe that the war could end and that normal life will return in six months – tell them that normal life will not return in the coming years, and maybe this extraordinary situation will continue for decades.”

Before his election in May 2014, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko promised to end the war in Donbass within two weeks.

DPR Emergency Statement: Following Trump call, Poroshenko is preparing for total war

RusVesna – translated by J. Arnoldski –

The deputy commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Eduard Basurin, stated at an emergency briefing in Donetsk last night that Poroshenko is preparing to unleash a full-scale war and reject the Minsk Agreements.

Basurin announced: “Following the talk between Poroshenko and Trump, Ukraine will in the near future cease to receive financial and military support for its terrorist operation in the land of Donbass. In connection with this, the Ukrainian president has fallen into complete despair and is ready to desperately commit to the most reckless action of unleashing a full-scale and bloody war in Eastern Europe.”

“All of this is needed in order to blame their crimes on the unrecognized republics and the Russian Federation and defraud the West of new funds in order to develop their business built on the blood of the ordinary Ukrainian people,” Basurin continued.

“The military-political command of Ukraine has refused to implement the Minsk Agreement on withdrawing heavy artillery from the contact line. On the contrary, it has carried out a build up of troop groupings.

“Our intelligence has confirmed the enemy’s activeness. In particular, we have recorded the concentration of enemy forces and means on the frontline for the purpose of creating a strike group.

Two Tochka-U tactical missile complexes have been moved from Kramatorsk to the territory of the Avdeevka Coke Plant. Another six Tochka-U’s have been unloaded at the train station in Novobakhmutovka…Two companies of nationalists headed by the ex-commander of Right Sector, D. Yarosh, have arrived in the area of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade. Units of the National Guard of Ukraine have arrived in the area of Volnovakha.”

The DPR deputy commander reported further: “Under the cover of night, while lighting up the Crimean front in an attempt to disguise their other activities, the transfer of an anti-tank artillery division from the 57th separate mechanized brigade is ongoing to reinforce the UAF’s mechanized brigades on the Donetsk and Mariupol fronts. In addition, the fact of the redeployment of the 92nd separate mechanized brigade in full force from the Kharkov region to the zone of Poroshenko’s terrorist operation against the civilian population of Donbass, has been established. Three battalions from the nationalist Azov force have arrived from in Mariupol from Urzuf.”

Eduard Basurin concluded: “This information allows us to conclude that the UAF command, on the order of the military-political leadership of Ukraine, is preparing offensive combat operations across the entire contact line as well as sabotage against civil infrastructure, imitating the Nazis in 1941.

“In turn, our troops are ready to give the enemy a dignified rebuff and rout Kiev’s terrorist troops as before.”
