Poland's ambition leads EU to ecological disaster
Strange things have been happening in the EU lately. Poland tends to be a leader while providing a quite specific policy, not abiding by European laws and refusing to implement all-European decisions. At the same time Poland gets 3 times more grants from the EU budget than pays contributions. But it wants to represent the EU on the international scene.
The Vistula Split Channel is just another Polish project that is to be done without European permissions while not considering possible outcomes for the region. That is, Poland wants to act independently in this matter. I just want to wonder what force or who feeds Polish ambition and gives it strength to act contrary to European structures and rules. The answer is quite simple.
The letter says Poland isn't so independent in its desire to build the channel for the project was financed by the USA, which is keen on the channel opening free access to one more Polish port of Elblag. It'll help the USA to locate more troops, missiles and tanks in Poland to stand up against Russia.
Yet, do the Polish people need that? It turns out that they weren't even asked. Mr. Kaczyński has given up both the Poles and the territory covering the bargain with a fairy-tale about Elblag's trade perspectives. Kaczyński has sold not only the ecology of Poland, but also of the whole Baltic region as well.
The residents of the Krynica Morska resort located on the Vistula Split write petitions , organize ecological protests in hope the nature of the region will be protected by ecologists and the leadership of Poland. https://www.krynicamorska.pl/blog/927/stop-przekopowi-mierzei-wislanej-widokowki-z-krynicy-do-komisji-europejskiej-w-brukseli But that's useless because just creates senseless noise around the channel that doesn't influence on anything. It's a closed bargain for both the USA and Poland.
Will anybody be able to stop the construction of the channel and bring the leadership of Poland, which is ready to sacrifice the ecology of Europe for American money, to its level? Of course, yes. Germany, France and other economically and politically more powerful EU states can stop these works, and they should do it because that's in their best interests.
Firstly, all possible efforts should be made for the conservation of the Baltic Sea ecology, which was a stumbling-block during the Nord Stream 2 construction. There are needed resources for that. Secondly, the actions of Polish authorities should be put under control because they implement dangerous project for the sake of the United States or for their own benefit.
