    Off the coast of the Black Sea in the Mykolaiv region, archaeologists have discovered a sunken ancient Greek shipwreck dating back more than 2.5 thousand years. The ship, discovered during a joint expedition of the Institute of Archaeology of NAS of Ukraine and the Warsaw Institute of Archaeology, is believed to be one of the oldest of its kind discovered in the region. According to the head of the black sea international underwater archaeological expedition, Vyacheslav Gerasimov, it may have possibly sailed ancient trade routes to Olbia or Chersonesos. “This ship is one of the oldest known in the Northern...

    Poland’s foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz on Monday headed to Georgia on a visit marking 10 years since Russia’s invasion of that country. “Ten years ago, as a result of the Russian Federation’s military aggression against Georgia, Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia found themselves under a separatist rule established and supported by Moscow that is not recognised by the international community,” “We oppose all efforts that interfere with the sovereign right of the Tbilisi authorities to exercise dominion over the territory of Georgia within its internationally recognised boundaries. “We condemn actions aimed at actually integrating the separatists regions of Abkhazia...

    HPSurf sent this clip of Polish MP Dominik Tarczynski schooling a BBC bimbo on Muslim immigration in Poland. He also mentioned he was thinking of moving there. All I can say is dlaczego nie? First Poland saved Europe from the Ottomans (single-handedly), then from the Kaiser (an assist) followed by the Commies (a major assist) and now again from the modern-incarnation of the Ottomans - which aren’t much different from the ones some 400 years ago. Just how many times does Poland have to save Western Civilization anyway? I think we should help them this time by adopting Dominik Tarczynski’s platform...

    Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini has rejected an EU offer to pay out €6,000 for every new migrant they take. Salvini has seen his popularity surge with the adoption of tough new policies to protect the Mediterranean country’s maritime borders and block the NGOs which have been ferrying thousands of illegal migrants to Europe from smuggler boats off the coast of Libya. the EU has so far attempted to use the carrot rather than the stick against the Italians, attempting to induce them to accept more migrants through financial incentives rather than financial penalties...
  • Thousands Protest In Poland Over Judicial Reform…Government Holds Firm Against Leftists

    Thousands turned out in Warsaw, Poland and 20 other Polish cities to protest judicial reform brought by the ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS). The demonstrators see the changes as a threat to the rule of law. The EU has backed this view of the reforms in the conservative country. However, the government says communist influence was never fully removed from the court system after the end of the Soviet Union, and Polish independence. The measures give the government the ability to force retirement for Supreme Court judges. Another facet allows nominations of judges by the legislature, as in the...

    In 2016, Poland issued 586,000 first residence permits to nationals of non–European Union countries. Poland issued more such permits that year than did any other EU member-state except Britain—and more than Germany (505,000), which has more than double Poland’s population. The vast majority of these non-EU migrants have come from the former Soviet Union, especially from Ukraine, a nation plagued by war, poverty, and corruption. In late 2017, 1.45 million Ukrainians were working legally in Poland. In a country of 38 million, that amounts to nearly 4 percent of the population, and between 4 and 6 percent of the workforce....

    Matthew Luxmoore’s article (Poles apart: the bitter conflict over a nation’s history, The long read, 13 July) contains a gross error likely to lead readers to misunderstand the Soviet Union’s true intentions during the second world war. There were 1.5 million Poles deported to Siberia, not “hundreds of thousands” as the article states, with no mention of their fate. They were forcibly taken from their homes in eastern Poland to gulags. Most died of starvation and disease under forced labour. To misrepresent this suffering, which took place on a colossal scale, is a crime akin to Holocaust denial. My grandfather...

    In April 2007, the former Soviet republic of Estonia decided to relocate a monument of gratitude out of the centre of its capital city, Tallinn. The bronze statue depicts a pensive soldier with his head bowed, one hand holding a helmet and the other curled into a fist. For Estonia’s Russian minority, it was a symbol of the country’s liberation from fascism by the Red Army. For Estonians, it was a reminder of the country’s occupation by the Soviet Union. On 26 April, as authorities cordoned off the monument in preparation for its removal, hundreds of ethnic Russians descended on...
  • Why Israel Wants Trump to Get Along With Putin

    As far as much of the American public is concerned, the timing for U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin couldn't be worse. The indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officers on Friday renewed the calls for a tougher stance from the administration against Moscow. But with Trump determined to achieve some sort of détente with Russia, the indictments gave ammunition to his critics who see the meeting as appeasement or worse. But while Americans are deeply divided about the highly politicized topic of relations with Russia, many Israelis seem to be taking a very different view...

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: "I look at the latest developments, including Helsinki, where it might have been that one president of our neighboring country (Putin) was pressuring the U.S. president for concessions. But I have not seen any concessions, neither as regards the annexation of Crimea nor the war in Ukraine," Morawiecki said. "None of the voices that were appearing beforehand as hypothetically possible - concessions by the United States - have materialized. So I don't see where he (Trump) has made any significant concessions. Poland is the biggest former communist country in both the European Union and NATO,...

    Polish people love America Poland wouldn't mind seeing Trump as the advocate of Eastern European interests in Brussels. It's not just about a stronger NATO presence, but also about history and shared values. Many Poles see it as a given that the US should be responsible for their security, as the country suffered at the hands of neighboring Germany and Russia in the past and feels cheated by other European states. The PiS government agrees wholeheartedly with Trump's climate and migration policies, as well as criticism of the German-Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. And there are concrete economic...

    “Germany is totally controlled by Russia … They will be getting between 60 and 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that is appropriate because I think its not,” Trump said. The U.S. president was speaking at a press conference in front of NATO representatives ahead of a two-day summit. The Trump administration’s policies indicate it views security and trade as intimately linked. And when it comes to the trade balance, no ally will be spared. Speaking in Brussels, Belgium on the first leg of his European trip, the U.S. president...

    European Council President Donald Tusk told U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stop berating NATO allies over military investment levels ahead of what is expected to be a fraught alliance summit. […] “Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don’t have that many,” Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, said after a signing statement on more cooperation between the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. As European Council president, Tusk serves as the chairman when EU leaders meet at summits. Even while in the air, Trump kept up the attack. He said in a Twitter post...

    CZĘSTOCHOWA, Poland (ChurchMilitant.com) - Polish Catholics have turned back a gay march on one of the country's holiest sites, Jasna Góra Monastery. In a deliberate act of provocation, gay activists recently announced that on July 8 they would rally at the shrine — home to the image of Our Lady of Częstochowa, the "Black Madonna" — and "greet" the monks who live there. But a coalition of Catholic apostolates pushed back. Blasting the march as a sacrilege, they rallied Catholics to come together for a counter-demonstration and a Rosary of reparation for "public promotions of the sin of homosexuality."   Groups like the Youth Crusade, the Pro-Right to Life Foundation, the National-Radical Camp...
