Russian opinion: Moscow, not Warsaw will be leader of Three Seas

Russian journalist says Moscow, not Warsaw will be the leader of the Three Seas Initiative.

Stanisław Stremidłowski who writes for the Regnum agency, starts his column by referring to the recent celebration of the Hungarian-Polish Friendship Day. According to him, due to the fact that both countries were represented by their Presidents and not PMs implies that it was merely a courteous event. Stremidłowski argued that this proves how ephemeral Polish-Hungarian cooperation really is. 

“In Warsaw the concept of the Three Seas, till recently virtual, is seen not only in the category of an economic sub-group of the EU,” writes Stremidłowski. 

In any case, Poland’s hopes that the United States will flood Europe with their cheap gas and its main distributor will be Warsaw, will not happen

He quoted professor Marek Chodakiewcz who had claimed that owing to the Three Seas project, Poland may become the center of distribution for American resources in Europe. 

“Meanwhile, as a result, Warsaw only has the company of the Baltic states, meanwhile the other countries are either indecisive or have chosen to join Nord Stream 2 or are “waltzing” around the Turkish Creek. Mainly Austria and Hungary,” Stremidłowski writes.

“In any case, Poland’s hopes that the United States will flood Europe with their cheap gas and its main distributor will be Warsaw, will not happen,” the journalist underlined.

He claimed that the Three Seas is being taken over by Russia, who is convincing more countries to energy cooperation. “This does not mean that Warsaw will be excluded from the Three Seas. Some projects with its participation will be realized, but Poland won’t be the Three Seas’ leader.”

“On the other hand, Moscow can thank Warsaw for its idea. Not for the first, or last, time Poles have worked hard for the good of Russia,” the journalist concluded.
