'European Unity': Poland Reportedly Closed Airspace For Russian Aircraft Delivering Medical Aid To Italy

Photo: TASS / Maksim Grigoryev

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis in Europe, multiple structures of the EU have demonstrated that they are not capable and not interested in dealing with the real problems of EU member states. They are mostly concerned with keeping the national governments under own control, sucking money of national states and selling European interestes to the global establishment. The myth about the so-called ‘European’ or ‘Euro-Atlantic’ unity was also destroyed by the reality. However, the situation seems to be even worse.

Aleksey Pushkov, a Russian Senator and a former chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs, said on March 23 that Poland had refused to let Russian IL-76 military aircraft carrying aid to coronovirus-hit Italy use its airspace.

“Poland did not let Russian aircraft carrying aid to Italy pass through its airspace. This is meanness at the level of public policy. Moreover, the help was for an ally of Poland in the EU and NATO. From now on, Russia should not meet Poland half-way, on any issue,” he wrote.

Pushkov was not the only who noted that Russian aircraft delivering medical aid to Poland flies to Italy via a long route. They were forced to make a detour, having to travel at least 3,000km more than if routed through Polish airspace. 

The senator’s statement has not been confirmed by either the Polish authorities or the Russian Defence Ministry. There is a chance that the Russian side opted to use the longer route to deliver medial aid to Italy by instant reasons.

Since March 22, the Russian Defense Ministry has sent at least 14 flights of IL-76 military transport aircraft with dozens pieces of medical equipment, and hundreds of medics and viral agent defense specialists to Italy. The Russian COVID-19 response team is now actively engaged in containing the outbreak in the country.

    Poland must be so proud of themselves. Isn’t Italy an EU partner and NATO partner of Poland’s? Did Poland send any help to Italy? Or just a begging bowl to Italy, asking for help in purchasing the Polish apples, Russia sanctioned, many years ago?

        Funny how they scream, whinge and rage at Russia, whilst ignoring their own history. Besides muddling up the Soviet Union and Russia.

          been awhile since i’ve been there but when i was they were still in deep denial over their sordid behaviour in ww2. i don’t think that has changed one bit.

          • AM Hants

            Must admit, once upon a time I felt sorry for how Poland was treated during WWII. Owing to growing up on Ealing Film Studios WWII films.

            Now, since waking up in 2014, more and more questions, regard their behaviour, comes to mind.

            It was only recently I heard they annexed Czechoslivakia, back in 1938.

            The Israel 75th Anniversary Celebrations, with Poland rewriting history.

            The pure hatred of Russia, from century to century. Why does Vatican hatred of Christian Orthodox ideology, so come to mind? Together with Polish Cardinals/Pope’s and their Nazi sympathies.

            Who gave Sorass the keys to the front door of the Vatican?

            Donald Tusk and how did he end up one of the many EU President’s, especially when you look at his grandfather’s position in WWII?

          • Franz J Kunz

            AM H, I was born in that area (mind you after the WW2) of Northern Moravia and Silesia that Poland ‘annexed’ in 1938, so I should know something about it. Yes, it was annexation in political jargon, since this area of Silesia was given to Czechoslovakia by Western powers after WW1 (the same Western powers that gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler in 1938), but I can tell you that our parents and grandparents who were Polish nationals (even those with German surnames) with Czech citizenship and numbered 100,000 vs less than 10,000 Czechs, welcomed the Polish army with flowers, songs and folks dances in the streets. We were happy to be back in Poland. Unfortunately, as you know the happiness was short lived, did not last. You can compare this situation with Crimea, where 80% of the population being Russian voted to be ‘annexed’ by Russia in 2014. Lucky them, as nobody will tear Crimea from Russia ever again, no matter what pressure NATO countries will exert on Russia.

          • AM Hants

            Thank you Franz. I am seriously ignorant with regards WWII history and also the politics of Eastern Europe. Hence only found out a couple of weeks ago, with regards Poland annexing the area.

            Seriously like interesting comments, which I learn from. Like your one.

            Not anti the people of Poland, just their leaders. Same in my own country, England, it is the leaders, who do so much evil, in our name and have no respect for nation, territory or people, just their own greed and ego.

        • dontlietome

          I’m not sticking up for the Poles as I cannot warm to a single one of them in spite of working with them over the past 40 years……………..BUT Sometimes tho’ you need to see things from their perspective. Just one example…… The Smolensk air disaster;- (and I quote)
          The Smolensk air disaster occurred on 10 April 2010, when a Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft of the Polish Air Force crashed near the Russian city of Smolensk,killing all 96 people on board. Among the victims were the President of Poland Lech Kaczyński and his wife Maria, the former President of Poland in exile Ryszard Kaczorowski, the chief of the Polish General Staff and other senior Polish military officers, the president of the National Bank of Poland, Polish Government officials, 18 members of the Polish Parliament, senior members of the Polish clergy and relatives of victims of the Katyn massacre. The group was arriving from Warsaw to attend an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the massacre, which took place not far from Smolensk.
          The Poles blame the Russians for this disaster, although it looks as if the blame lies with the Poles ultimately, they are programmed by their media………NEVER FORGET!

          • AM Hants

            That air disaster, wasn’t that allegedly the reason the grandson of the Polish SS Officer ended up one of the many President’s of the EU?

            Those on board the flight, weren’t they attending a meeting in Russia to sign some deals the Globalists did not like?

            Have no problems with people of Poland, who are just like those in most nations. Do have problems with the insanity of their leaders.

    • Xanatos

      Remember, Russia is not permitted to fly over Ukraine. They can either go north of Ukraine, thru Poland, or south of Ukraine thru the black sea.

      It is disgusting to see this polish government, increasingly fascist, and not allowing freedom of the press, is choosing to punish Italy just to spite Russia.

      • AM Hants

        Wonder how many Polish MPs, benefit from the wallet of the Nazi collaborater Sorass?

        I think Mistrust originates in Poland. I have encountered and worked with Poles for over 50 years of my life, and I have travelled widely thro’ out the globe. During a conversation with one, he remarked;” How do you expect me to trust you, when we do not trust each other (Poles).” Sums them up for me.

      Wasn’t Donald Tusk the Polish grandson of a leading SS Official?

      Didn’t Poland have their own Galicia NAZI Division?

      Who created the Nazis?

      Didn’t Stalin take the Galician City of Lyev and hand it to Ukraine? Leaving the sector of Ukraine, with Galician DNA, loyal to the Nazis and envious of the citizens of Ukraine with Russian DNA.

      Funny, how so many in the Atlantic Council, NATOs Think Tank which was created by Allen Dulles, are related to the Bolsheviks and Nazi elite, who were provided safe passage, courtesy Operation Paperclip. How many of the opportunists, are also in Senior positions in Sorass funded institutions, including EU, ‘5 eye’ nations (including UK and US) and Governments?

      Allen Dulles, First Director of the C I, who created the CIA, in the same year that Israel was founded. With his good friends SS Intelligence Officer Reinhard Ghelenqx and the leader of the US Communist Party, Earl Browder, grandfather of Bill, they devised the list of the Nazi and Bol shevik elite, that would be granted safe passage out of Europe, courtesy ‘Operation Paperclip’, back in 1947.

      • TSH

        Donald Tusk’s Grandpa, joined the nazis on Sept 1, 1939, the day Poland was attacked. Other Poles fought to their deaths. In today’s age we see the repetition of history, albeit similar but not the same. Once again the Pilsudski/vatican plan “intermarium,” has reemerged. Apparently, Poles and the Visegrad (4) vassals of the west are to be built up to fight Russia. Even, Zbig Brzezinski realized at the end that this would fail. Outside of the leadership structures, most eastern european people would probably side with Russia.

        Washington DC,in control of military. Nation in a nation, with own rules and taxes, loyal to Roman Empire.

        The Vatican, in charge of spirituality. Country in a country, with own rules and taxes, loyal to Roman Empire.

        Jurusalem, over 2000 years ago was an outpost of the Roman Empire.

        Khazarians originate from Nomadic Turkic Tribes, who adopted Christianity, Judaism, Islam and learnt to speak Hebrew.

        Doesn’t Sorass control the Vatican, with his friends? Poland is loyal to the Vatican and also Sorass and friends. Italy wanted friendship with everybody.

        Sorass, the best times of his life was when he was a Nazi collaborater, back in 1944.

    It seems to me they want to punish Italy, because Italy is on the go to leave the EU, and Italy dares to upset Merkels migration plans. So they received a special corona virus. Meanwhile I think the EU/US are capable of everything.

  • Хасен Жасем Халфет

    Technically Russia had to spend 40% more fuel (at the most) that’s it and it is nothing compared to the cost of the whole mission (a drop in the ocean):
    The Route they took is 3500km. the shortest is 2500km. Practically the Il-76MD has a range of 4400km with maximum payload (52tons) so there was no logistics problem and the deliveries could accure easily with same number of flights.

    Now the reasons (if any) is an internal european matter. Russia should not interfere with it. EU or NATO not helping Italy is their problem not Russia’s. I was already against helping Italy from the beginning.

    • AM Hants

      Russia, fortunately shown they are the better nation, coming to the assistance of the people of Europe.

      You may not agree, but, again Russia has exposed the true intentions of the EU. With regards not caring for the people.

      Who will remember the actions of Russia, when the dust settles and history is recorded? Ironic, the nation that remembers the evil of Auschwitz, will be remembered in history as the nation of pettyness. Refusing air space to 1 nation providing Aid, to Poland EU and NATO partners.

      • Хасен Жасем Халфет

        ok Russia can show they are all evil etc etc … and what ? what would that change ?

        realistically: nothing western policy will not change, western propaganda Vs Russia will not change. Russia will win nothing. Websites like SouthFront are not visited by those who are already anti-Russia. so most people will hear about this help from their own media who will say “The united States, Russia, China and Cuba (if they even remember Cuba) have sent help to italy to face corona Virus” they will not say Russia sent 14 huge aircraft when the us only sent one small C-130 (one Russian Il-76MD has a capacity of 52 tons when C-130 has a capacity of 16.5 tons)

        • AM Hants

            The stab in the back that will revere all the PR points Russia could have gained with this help.

            At this point sanctions will never be lifted (russians will learn to live with them and eventually forget they exist) just like Crimea will never leave Russia and just like the US will not provide proof Russia meddled in the elections and UK will never provide evidence in the Skripal case etc etc …

        They would’ve flown the wrong way round the world if needed. I think the Russian aid is based on generosity first and simply even if it serves diplomatic aims. Not like the US, that never does anything altruistic anymore.

        • AM Hants

          With regards Russia, she never fails to amaze me.

          Just 20 years ago she was bankrupt. Never whinged. Never whined. Never complained, just brushed herself down and moved on.

          Back in 1917, how many Russians did the Bolsheviks slaughter, including the Tsar, his wife and children?

          In the late 30s/forties, how many Russians were sacrificed in the war?

          Remember growing up watching WWII films on a Sunday afternoon. Believing the UK and US won the war single handed. Russia lost 13 million out of the 26-27 million, Soviet losses. The UK and US lost under 1 million between them. The US did not turn up to the party, till Germany declared war on them, but, the US waltzed off with all the prizes.

          No ‘professional victim’ status or begging bowls from the people of Russia. They paid the €45 billion Soviet Union debt, paid the Baltics the Soviet Compensation. Again without whinging, wailing or moaning.

          9/11, the people of Russia sent a $12 million memorial to the people of the US. Tear of Grief memorial, to show friendship, solidarity, compassion, love, grief and sympathy, to the people of America, in their time of need.

          Crimea, sorted in 3 weeks, with no loss of blood.

          Aid trucks to Eastern Ukraine, with full media knocking and ridicule. Yet, who were helping the average citizens of Ukraine, when Western leaders and media were supporting the Ukraine Nazis?

          The Victory Parade of 2014, with the Immortal Parade, so opened my eyes. Together with many in the Kremlin remembering the hardship their families went through in the Great Patriotic War. Experiences those in Washington DC would never have experienced, let alone have the ability to empathise.
          So respect Russia. God bless nation and people.

        Wasn’t Italy one of those poodles following the US blindly? Sanctions, anyone? Italy is used as transport and storage infrastructure against the real civilized world (Russia+China) for decades, remember? What about those NATO bases everywhere in Italy? Do you think people are so stupid not to notice that? When Italians are being obedient poodles and conspiring with the Americans to commit mass murders against everybody on earth, are we not suppose to suspect them otherwise? Are we like 4 year old children or what, huh? Go out and ask Libyans, Iraqis, Syrians and anybody from the Middle-East, they’ll tell you that they were forced to abandon their homelands because of American illegal wars which Italian Government didn’t oppose but supported in the first place. Italians deserve every woe they may have, unfortunately. You do something evil, and then don’t expect others to feel pity for you. You execute your evil master’s orders like such a sweet sex-doll, then don’t pretend like you are some kind of victim. We have no common ground to treat each other like equals. A free man has no need to talk to someone else’s bitch, I think. The reality is harsh and brutal.

      • Хасен Жасем Халфет

        1/ Italy is not friendly to Russia: Sanctions, does not recognize Crimea as Russian …
        2/ Helping Italy will not result in any meaningful change in the western policy towards Russia: Sanctions will not be lifted, Russophobic policy will not change. Anti-russia reports in media will not be less. Fake news about Russia will not stop.
        3/ Any help given to other nations is taken from tax payers money. that money is better used helping Russian population build one more school/hospital/ repair one road etc … even buying one more tank is more valuable than helping a hostile country that is imposing santions on the Russian economy and Russian people.

        Now I am not Russian and I have no say on the matter. It’s just an opinion.

        PS: I can be wrong and maybe this help will change the public perception of Russia in the west and change the public policy towards Russia. if that happens then hats off to putin … he would have done a great job. But that’s really unlikely.

        • Ricky Miller

          This is a good attempt on the part of the Kremlin to do some good and help people. But I doubt that the Russians will see any real benefit from it. It will be and already has been twisted in westernized media and talking heads as some kind of malign act to sow discord in Europe. And even now an Italian frigate has joined four other NATOland frigates in entering the Black Sea to instigate tensions with Russia. So while Russian military medical professionals are putting themselves on the line to try to save lives and prevent the spread of this pathogen ravaging Italy, Italian sailors are in the Black Sea on a deployed mission to harass Russia. No good deed goes unpunished, and quickly nowadays.

        • men del

          You are spot on, my friend.
          1. Italy is not only unfriendly to Russia, it’s hostile to Russia. I heard northern Italian farmers we against the sanctions, but what about the central and southern Italian response, huh? The Sicilians are too quiet, too busy counting their money they got from the NATO, I guess. Also when the sanctions against Russia was being renewed, Italians were like living corpses, agreeing to any proposals quite naturally. I despise the Western Europeans for many reasons, it’s just one of them.
          2. Helping Italians is just a waste of precious resources. Italians are brainwashed beyond any recognition. Even if Russia helps them, after a year or two, Italians will forget. Italians always see Russia as land of the inferior race, mixed with Asians during the Golden Horde Era, not a true European nation. Back in the middle ages, Italians hated Russians because they were Orthodox. During the XX century, Italians mocked Russians for being under a different social structure. Italians just like other Europeans, always find or invent a reason to hate Russia. Russia hasn’t done any harm against Italians, but Italians didn’t care. Russia was always GUILTY of something. It’s like Russia had to be GUILTY forever.
          3. It’s where you are mistaken. Russia should help other countries as much as she can. That’s the only way. But not Italy, I say it again not Italy ever. Those countries except western European countries need Russia’s help. Otherwise they turn to the IMF and end up becoming American whores. Just look at Greece now. Have their economy improved, no. Have their security improved in the last 50 years, no. Did the IMF really helped any country on this planet, no. The countries that took loans from the World Bank or the IMF, all ended up having their territory turn into American military bases, their natural resources plundered, their girls and women violated, their protesters shot and massacred, their opposition figures arrested and tortured, their political leaders enjoying offshore wealth and their population’s living standards plummeting to the bottom. Wherever Americans go to, death and suffering follow like a shadow. And western Europeans are complicit to this crimes against humanity. All their talk about equality, human rights are just masks designed to win their local elections. they really don’t mean it. Those bombs exploding in Iraqi and Afghanistan are bought by the Pentagon, but paid by the American and European tax payers, that makes their population automatically combatants and criminals against humanity. I urge the Russian Federation actually increase their support to other nations so they can protect their sovereignty better. It’s better for Russia in the long shot. You my friend seeing things in a narrow lens.

          there is nothing to lose and everything to gain in the RU policy.
          plus, the Russians learn a lot more about the virus for their own protection.
          plus, it makes mighty murika look like a fool letting down another ally.
          plus, it make the EU look like a fool for letting down a member.

            It would make EU and Merica look bad IF their media does report on that. but they have ignored it totally. their public image will not be touched by this.

          • JustPassingThrough

            the stakes are bigger than public image.

          • Хасен Жасем Халфет

            they are not. litteraly if anything would change it would be through public image in western countries. other countries are irrelevant here. most of them are ruled by dictators who are secured in their rule by US military might. they will never leave the US camp because “the US id not help Italy during Corona” that’s an infantile/simplistic take on it. they know the moment they will leave the US/NATO camp they will be instantly hit by the classic CIA destabilisation repertoire: “democratic revolution” “sanctions” and military support to the “freedom fighters”.

          • JustPassingThrough

            have it your way.
            simple is as simple does

            the murikans are losing ground everyday.
            where have you been?

            which dictators are secured because of the US?

          • Хасен Жасем Халфет

            Middle East (where the US has a military at least in every country).
            also other countries depend almost 100% on the US implementing their policy
            Turkey.
            Central Asia
            Israel
            Also someone like Guaido would have been hang a long time ago for treason if not protected by the US …

        • AM Hants

          At least you are honest.

          Will be marvelous if it helps with the Western perception of Russia. Believe it or not, there are many in the West who have so much respect for Russia and the people and little faith or belief in their own Governments or media.

          You have the masses, too thick to think for themselves. The trolls who are ‘paid to post’ and the millions who have turned their backs on the main stream media, all forms.

      Well, Putin offered help, yes, perhaps sheepishly, but real concrete help. Conte could have said No thank you, and that would be it. But he realized that any help coming his way is welcome, especially since most European countries worry about their own issues. Trump offered similar help to Iran, but Rouhani smelled the rat, and said thanks, but no thanks.

      • Хасен Жасем Халфет

        Trump did not offer “similar help” lol What ? he said he “offered them help” … I bet it had a list of 300 pages of conditions on it. and also the Iranian leadership do not talk directly with the US… I wander through which mediation he did ofer his help. meanwhile, Any country that would sell Iran any kind of technology (ventilators for example) will be hit with sanctions. what help do you expect in those circumstances…

  • Laurent Parodi

    Bravo Poland. You never fail to demonstrate the shithole you ve become.
    A message to poland from Italy (with disgust).

  • JustPassingThrough

    the poles never pass up an oportunity to show the world that they are knuckle draggers.
    the beauty of it is that with the UK out of the EU their allotment is going to be significantly less this year.

  • fayez chergui

    disgusting. For centuries Poland has had a filth attitude toward Russia.

  • swedish_viking

    Poland helped Sweden when they had a lot of wildfire Poland isn’t a bad country.
    In Sweden we are still very grateful for their help.

    Poland do sometimes seem to have something against Russia but i wouldn’t be surprised if it comes down to bureaucracy and that it takes time to grant this type of permits.

  • hvaiallverden

    Nothing is more anoying than dragging the past up to drool something about the present, when its completely irrelevant, to do what, make an point, eugenics, when Norway and Sweden did that all the way up to the 80s, why dont we debate that, the CIA had some places in Norway where they experimented on the sub-humans, Gaustad Sykehus, ask an Norwegian about that, forces lobotomations, sterilisations, taking their children away, medical experiments, etc to downright torture, but hey, Norway is so niiiiice, right.
    Eugenics, was invented by the Jews, and the Jews are doing that, as we speak, and I wounder do you know about the Ringworm Children, do you, and what do Beta Israeli means, and so on.
    But hey, I must be an Anti-semit right.

    The sad thing is, Polaks are shitheads, period, corrupted to their bone marrow, like the Romanians and the Bulgars, and why, when will we get an proper answer to that, but the main cause is been a nation os pathetic UssA (the Union of Sociopaths Scumbags and A..holes) a..likers, like the rest, incl ZATO, and all the way to the Banks.
    So, what do we have, when we know the UssA is insanely rotten, and downright evil, and you stil dont get it do you.

    This Video is, 35 seconds of revelation.

    And you wounder why the ZATO nations was soooo slooow, huh, because they belived this was an exsercise, and not an live event witch this turned out to be, and the targets was Italy, Iran and China/Russia.
    Then we have the MSM, where they spin, and spin, and spin, scare hard core porn, while we cant rely on anything when we know they lie about everything.
    I am now, dead certain something stinks high heaven, and “we lie, steel and cheet” Pompous is confirming that and even Trumpstein the lame was surpirced.
    Yeah, the shoah must go on.

    peace

    the map shows the shortest flight path to be through Ukraine, and not through Poland. Of course, the Ukrainians are not friendly to Russian aircraft, either.

  • Rhodium 10

    Poland like Ukraine and Baltic countries are just only the prostitutes of the Anglosaxon masonry military interests!..it is to hit Russia using that border countries!

  • Rafik Chauhan

    Poland is run by Zionist kahzar . they are pawn of israel and US.

    • Squeeth

      Dikhead, Poland is run by the US empire.

      • Albert Pike

        Same thing…

      • John Wallace

        Is not the US run by Israel so in effect the same .

  • Squeeth

    Perhaps the Russians should cross the border with thousands of troops to bring thousands of tons of goodwill.

  • Jaime Galarza

    I met a few Polish guys while in college. Not bad people but they had this sense of superiority as if they needed to show how smart they were. I think that they find difficult to accept their third-rate category as a country. They long for the time when they were a regional power in central Europe, and they hate Russia because the Polish were not able to maintain their status as opposed to the Russians. So to spite their face, they cut their nose (to screw Russia, they become vassals of the west).

    • Nikos Yiasou

      Excellent comment!

  • chris chuba

    FOX is still trying to figure out whether to portray this as an encroachment on NATO airspace or a Russian disinfo campaign designed to destroy NATO. Eh .. flip a coin.

    • Vitex

      You have to kinda read all the BS and then interpolate. And then sometimes one wonders why one bothers.

  • Nassim7

    It is not the fault of the Polish people. Their leaders are crap. But it has been like that since 1848 at least. That is when they had an uprising against Imperial Russia. The only problem was that Polish peasants preferred to be ruled by Russians. The Polish landlords were the worst to their peasantry.

  • ausjac

    I call bullshit on this one….

    • John Wallace

      Why ? . I am interested as to why. As Grandel points out that it would be shorter though Ukraine but would they allow them ??.

  • Fuckturkius Sraloukranius

    Poland is known to be the bitch of the US and UK. This is why Poland will be fucked again and again. Nobody love whores.

  • Poland is normally one of the more sane countries within the EU sphere of influence.

    It’s a douchebag act, blocking aid flights to an ally.

  • Vitex

    Well, f$ck you Poland, when you have a COVID crisis of your own.

  • goingbrokes

    Great move by Russia. At a time when EU faux solidarity is falling to pieces and some countries authorities are stealing supplies destined to other EU countries, getting help from Russia and China is a staggering gesture. But it is not just a gesture, Russia will draw direct benefit in terms of medical data, as well as political goodwill.
    Some people below claim that Italy is hostile to Russia because of sanctions etc. The sanctions are in place by the EU and no one country can change that. Also most countries have globalist elites who are intrinsically hostile to Russia – doesn’t mean the countries are.
    But incredibly EU is falling apart, and the sooner it happens the better!
