Poland might very well be put up by its dual American-German patrons into carrying out a possible false flag provocation in order to generate popular support for the bloc’s rapid militarization plans aimed at building “Fortress Europe”.

Following the Sejm's no-confidence vote, Mateusz Morawiecki's government has left office and the new cabinet along with Prime Minister Donald Tusk were sworn into office on Wednesday. US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, James O'Brien, expressed his hope that Poland would emerge as a leader in the European Union.

The new Polish government led by Donald Tusk “wants to be seen as even more pro-American than the previous one,” Polish politician Konrad Rekas told Sputnik.

The United Nations will continue working on Russian and Ukrainian foods and fertilizers being capable of supplies to the global market without restrictions, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at the meeting of the UN Security Council on Ukraine.

"We will also keep pushing for freedom and safety of navigation in the Black Sea and that badly needed Ukrainian and Russian food and fertilizers reached the global market without restrictions," Guterres said.

They just can’t take a joke. The former president Donald Trump made a sarcastic crack about encouraging Russia to attack NATO members that didn’t invest in their defense, and hysteria enveloped both Washington and Brussels. For some officials, the imbroglio appeared to signal the end of Western civilization. 

A group of self-styled “experienced public international lawyers and practitioners” have put together a case for confiscating Russian sovereign funds currently frozen by the US and its allies, saying it would be the appropriate response to Moscow’s “unlawful conduct” towards Ukraine.

Approximately €260 billion ($280 billion) in Russian sovereign funds were frozen by the Group of Seven countries in 2022. The UK and the US have recently demanded the outright seizure of these funds in order to fund the government in Kiev. 

Polish farmers protesting near the country's border with Ukraine are trying to “humiliate” their neighbor and inflict upon it as much pain as possible, President Vladimir Zelensky’s most senior adviser, Mikhail Podoliak, claimed on Wednesday. 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said the immediate future is bleak for the European Union due to the way the Ukraine conflict is unfolding.

He made the comments during a Fidesz-KDNP parliamentary faction conference behind closed doors on Wednesday, according to media reports.

Orban, who is a prominent critic of the bloc’s policies and has opposed its funding of Kiev’s conflict against Russia, predicted a major victory for conservative parties in the European Parliament elections in June.

Italy will sign a bilateral security agreement with Ukraine, Italian Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Antonio Tajani said.

According to him, a document similar to those signed earlier by France, Germany and the United Kingdom is in the works, it does not envisage any legal and financial obligations, as well as automatic political and military support.

The faltering bid of congressional warhawks to continue to provide Ukraine with a blank check isn't the only sign of Russia's geopolitical strength in eastern Europe. As the future of the war in Ukraine hinges on that crucial aid package, another region has emerged as evidence of Russia's growing sphere of influence. Pridnestrovie, a region bordering Ukraine known better under the western exonym Transnistria, is scheduled to address Russian President Vladimir Putin at its next congressional assembly on February 28th.
