Leader of the ruling party in Poland: Germany tries to turn the EU into the Fourth Reich

Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who is considered the most powerful man in the country, said that “countries are not enthusiastic about the possibility.”

Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, considered the most powerful man in the country, said Germany was trying to turn the EU into the “German Fourth Reich”. In an interview with the far-right newspaper in Poland, GPC, Kaczynski, chairman of the ruling PiS (Law and Justice Party) party, said some countries “are not enthusiastic about the possibility of a fourth Reich being built on the basis of the European Union”.

Kaczynski claimed that “if we, the Poles, agree to this kind of modern surrender – we will be humiliated in different ways.” He added that the European Court of Justice “instruments” federalist ideas.

Other members of the PiS party also claimed that the intentions of the new government in Germany were to bring about a “Fourth Reich”. The coalition agreement reached in Germany by the three member parties of the government stipulates that its ultimate goal is a federal European state. The Polish government condemned the agreement, and Kaczynski even claimed that such a state would rob Poland of its right to self-determination.

During this month’s visit to Warsaw by new German Chancellor Olaf Schultz, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Berlin’s support for EU federalism was “utopian and therefore dangerous”.

Poland is in constant conflict with the European Union, especially in light of the constitutional changes and changes in the judicial system that the ruling party has pushed for in the last six years. The EU announced this week that it is initiating legal proceedings against Poland for disregarding its laws and infringing on the country’s judicial independence. Poland, on the other hand, accused the union of “bureaucratic centralization.”
