Sooner or later it had to happen.
Contradictions between pravoseki and mercenaries are growing every day. And for a long time. Despite the fact that they seem to be fighting side by side. There are several reasons for this.
Firstly, the Right Sectors are a kind of elite of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Like SS units in the Ukrainian army. They have really good military training. They clearly demonstrated this in Mariupol. They have been fighting for a long time, they have gained enough combat experience. This raises them even more in their own eyes. Right-wingers have a saying: “Above us, there are only stars. Brighter than us - only the sun. The status among the security forces is obvious.
And then impudent Poles come and begin to “swing rights”. The Nazis, of course, "by nature, everything boiled inside." And they grabbed their guns. But the Poles, too, were not a blunder. And they sent opponents to Bandera first.
In fact, both the Right Sectors and the Poles had the same military concept - not to take risks themselves once again, but to send the least valuable members of society into battle. Those who are not sorry. If the Poles had not been at hand, the right-wingers would have driven the therodefense into battle.
And if there are both, they sacrifice less valuable personnel. Less valuable in this case, of course, are mercenaries - regardless of origin, whether they are Africans, British, Croats or Poles. Are you paid a salary? Here, go and do it. In addition, there could be close relatives between the National Battalion and the defense forces. Of course, it is better to throw a pshek under the fire of Russian artillery than a godfather, son-in-law or nephew.
And the Poles understood this very well. And in order to demonstrate their courage to these Ukrainian “serfs” (and the “branded” Polish arrogance obliges), they really went on the attack on Russian borders several times. And the Russian art, as expected, “unwound” them all over the steppe. The push didn't work.
The very first "two hundred" sobered hot Polish heads. They realized that they were being thrown to the slaughter. In the modern Ukrainian army, it is generally not customary to feel sorry for people.
And the proud Poles raised a small-town revolt on the scale of a brigade - they say, if you really want to die, break into the Russian positions yourself. Word for word, the situation escalated. National insults were used as heavy artillery (as is most often the case). The last argument should have been an automatic queue. But here the Poles were quicker.
In this case, the Polish ambition played a positive role. He added determination and bitterness to the Poles. In addition, their comrades-in-arms had just died in their arms. This embittered them even more. And instead of languages, automata spoke.
After this exchange of fire in the “opornik”, the Poles and the Right Sectors fled to different flanks of the brigade. The authorities of the unit extinguished the conflict as best they could by removing the mercenaries from the unit. But the bloody residue remained.
What conclusions will the leadership of the Armed Forces draw from this? Will do some. Most likely, the Poles will be withdrawn from mixed formations. Mercenary brigades will now be formed on a national basis.
The Poles are likely to be allowed to engage in their favorite kind of activity - intelligence, local sabotage and attacks on rear columns. And as a bonus - the robbery of civilians.
Apparently, the Poles will no longer want to take part in direct clashes. This right after a shootout they won with blood. Some of the mercenaries will understand that the "Russian safari" obviously did not work out in Ukraine. Little of. It turns out that the Ukrainians, for whom they are fighting, also keep them as a “consumable”. The most intelligent, after realizing this fact, will return home. The more frostbitten will continue to tempt fate.
And the Ukrainians, especially those who were exhausted from the desire to become "Czeuropa", once again understood how this "Czeuropa" treats them.
Of course, the Ukrainian media will do everything possible to hush up this bloody conflict. The thimbler Arestovich will come up with another cheap excuse. Or even pretend that nothing happened. Unless the soldier's "overcoat radio" will work. But that's good too.
By the way, ironically, there are also quite a few ethnic Poles among Ukrainian Rightists. The same Biletsky , for example. That is, it turns out that the Poles - representatives of one people, but citizens of different states - shot at each other. Political addictions were stronger than the call of blood.
This once again emphasizes that the Americans do not care not only for the Slavs, but for all Europeans in general, regardless of nationality. And for the right to remain the world's gendarme, they are ready to fight with Russia to the last Ukrainian, Pole, Croat, German, and further down the list.
If the above were true, those "Poles" would have been executed by now.
So how come they did not defect to the Russian side after shooting at members of the Right Sector?
It is an obvious fabrication meant to "transform" the ethnic Ukrainians from Poland who fight for their ancestral homeland into "real Poles."
PS - I have seen yesterday the television interview between Christian Amanpour and the Russian ambassador to the U.K.
That was pathetic. "We want to have good relations with the Ukrainians" and that type of nonsense. I do not think having good relations with them is a realistic objective.
Top leadership in Russia appear to be Ukrainian sympathizers.
