Polish media: Merkel believes in Europe of "two-speeds," at the end she betrayed Poland

 This week is ending with the most solid proof possible that at the end of her term as a Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel betrayed both Poland and European unity. Her actions upset Polish leadership so much that when asked what words he would say goodbye to Mrs. Merkel in a recent interview, Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński replied: "Goodbye."

Lithuania warns that the EU wants to remove Belavia airlines smuggling people from the Middle East from Belarusian companies subject to new sanctions. The head of Lithuanian diplomacy did not rule out that Germany might be involved in the case.

If those claims are true, then it seems that the worst expectations about the outcome of the talks between Angela Merkel and Alexander Lukashenka are being met.

"The German chancellor either surrenders to Russian blackmail, or worse, has reached an agreement with Putin and Lukashenka on the creation of a permanent immigration transfer point on the eastern border of the EU, useful for both sides to check the Polish government."

Merkel - Putin pact? In his piece for WPolityce, Marcin Wikło wrote: Germany shows at every turn that they want a two-speed Europe. The division into "better" and "worse."

Merkel's current contacts with Lukashenka should be described as highly disloyal to the allies. After talking to the dictator, the chancellor called him "Mr. Lukashenka" and not the president, but this is nothing compared to the conversation itself. It should not take place without talking to the Polish side first. She did afterwords.

"Merkel, therefore, when negotiating with Lukashenka, is in fact in dialogue with Putin. And here it all becomes clear. If you don't know what's going."

But that's not all it seems that both Russia and Germany want to take away Poland's success in migrants withdrawing from the Kuźnica border crossing. The result of the decisive attitude of the Polish government and its services, which successfully repelled the attack on the border, could now be presented for propaganda purposes not as a defeat for Russia and Belarus but as a result of the intervention of the German chancellor.

This week ended well for Poland but not well for diplomatic relations between Poland and Germany.
