Poland passes contentious bill to examine Russian influence

 The Western media report that the law just passed Polish Parliament, backed by the ruling Law and Justice party, is seen as targeting former Prime Minister Donald Tusk ahead of key elections this year. Some even say that the measure is unconstitutional.

What most critics are missing, or pretend to do so, is that the original idea came from the opposition parties themselves. The difference is they wanted to look at the years the ruling party was in power. The law passed simply extended the period to be examined to the years before the assassination (there is overwhelming proof that it was not an accident or human error) of President Lech Kaczynski. 

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the president's twin brother, said:

The threats related to Russian influence in Poland are not imaginary, which must finally be investigated and shown to the public - this is what they are most afraid of - so that Poles know what it really was like, what threatens us now.
