The head of Poland’s central bank has claimed that Germany is eying up ways of seizing territory lost to Poland after the end of the Second World War.
Adam Glapiński, the President of the Central Bank of Poland, also accused former Polish prime minister and European Council president Donald Tusk, whose “centrist” party was ousted by the current national conservative one, of aiming to overthrow Poland’s current political order with the backing of Germany in the hopes of creating of a federal EU superstate — a stated aim of the current sitting German government.
In an interview with local publication Gazeta Polska, the central banker accuses Germany of wanting to subordinate “the entire belt of countries between Germany and Russia” — seemingly through the European Union.
This, he claims, has long been part of Germany’s “basic national interests”, which allegedly involve “the merger of the German states, or the absorption of practically the GDR, i.e. the former Soviet occupation zone, and since the completion of this task, about regaining some form of their former lands, which are now within the borders of Poland”.
