On 18 May, the houses of our collaborator, Mateusz Piskorski and his team, (Konrad Rękas, Tomasz Jankowski and Nabil Malazii), were searched by the Polish police. Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on the suspicion of “spying”, and put in prison.

Central Europe is profoundly divided between those supporting closer ties with Western Europe (the European Union) and those in favour of closer ties with Eastern Europe (the Russian Federation).

Mateusz Piskorski, a former MP and director of a publishing house, set up the European Centre for Geopolitical Analysis and, more recently, the party Zmiana (Change). Piskorski is fighting for the unity of the Slav people within a Europe that includes Russia.

Together with 150 leaders and militants from across the whole world, he participated in 2005 in the Axis for Peace Congress organized in Brussels by Thierry Meyssan. Over the last 10 years, he has made many trips with Thierry Meyssan, notably to China, Iran, Kirghizstan, Lebanon, Russia, Syria and the European Union.

Mateusz Piskorski has undertaken the fight against Anglo-Saxon imperialism, in a number of countries, principally Europe, Africa and Asia. He has become one of the leading spokesmen for the Crimean cause against the government of Kiev, to which genuine Nazis belong.

For four years, an international press campaign had repeatedly presented him as a “former Nazi” or as a “friend of dictators”. In his country he was defamed and persecuted by the government of Beata Szydło, who constantly denounced him as a “foreign agent” at press conferences.

Mateusz Piskorski’s arrest on the ridiculous charge of spying “for the benefit of a Russia and China” (sic) signals Nato’s beginning to recapture control of Poland. In an article that we had published on the evening of his arrest [1], Mateusz Piskorski announced a NATO operation to “cleanse” the Polish political scene in light of the summit of the Heads of States and governments of the Atlantic Alliance which will take place in Warsaw on 8 and 9 July 2016.

Now Mateusz Piskorski is the first political prisoner in Poland
