Russian rocket near Bydgoszcz. What do Poles think about it? The poll results are not good for the government

Polish authorities reacted inadequately after a Russian rocket landed in Poland in December. In the latest survey for “Fakty” TVN and TVN24, as many as 70 percent of the respondents thought so. This is a devastating result for the government. In addition, 54 percent of those polled said that the Minister of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak should be dismissed.

The reality for Mariusz Błaszczak is not kind at all. The survey proves it. Commissioned by “Fakty” TVN and TVN24, Kantar asked Poles whether, in their opinion, the authorities reacted appropriately to the fall of a Russian rocket near Bydgoszcz. The results are devastating to the authorities. Only 17 percent of those questioned said that yes, the authorities responded appropriately. 70 percent of the respondents were of the opposite opinion. 13 percent of respondents chose the answer “difficult to say”. – I am not surprised by the indignation of Poles with this omission, which is already evident today – says General Bogusław Pacek, director of the Institute for Security and International Development.

Mariusz Błaszczak, after it turned out that a Russian rocket had fallen near the NATO training center and the army had not found it for four months, continued to accept awards. When the rocket was found by a woman during a horse ride – the minister in an official statement accused the operational commander of incompetence. Then there was silence. Mariusz Błaszczak did not answer the questions of even the secret parliamentary committee. When a TVN24 reporter asked about trust in the minister, President Kaczyński himself stood up for him. – And at this moment, unfortunately, I am forced – this is not a personal remark towards you – to treat you as a representative of the Kremlin, because only the Kremlin wants this gentleman to stop being the minister of national defense – said the PiS president on May 27.

Most of the respondents want Błaszczak’s resignation

The results of the next Kantar poll for “Fakty” TVN and TVN24 for Mariusz Błaszczak are also bad. 54 percent of those questioned believed that he should be dismissed in connection with the fall of a Russian missile on Polish territory. 32 percent said they shouldn’t. 14 percent of the respondents chose the answer “difficult to say”. – It would be worth asking Jarosław Kaczyński if he believes that 54 percent of the respondents are some foreign agents – said Joanna Kluzik-Rostkowska, PO MP.

It is worth noting that Jarosław Kaczyński, who defends the minister so fiercely, had his share in shaping the Polish air defense. After the tragic fall of a rocket near the Ukrainian border and the death of two Poles, the Germans proposed deploying Patriots in Poland, i.e. the best equipment for shooting down missiles. Mariusz Błaszczak was happy with this proposal in writing, but later he stopped being happy because Jarosław Kaczyński spoke. He decided that Poland did not need German help in shooting down Russian missiles and the government did not want it either. “Germany’s current attitude gives no reason to believe that they will decide to interfere, to shoot at Russian missiles,” said Jarosław Kaczyński on November 28, 2022.

– The better the Ukrainian sky is protected, the better the Polish land is protected – argued Mateusz Morawiecki on November 30, 2022. A few weeks after these statements, a Russian missile flew over half of Poland and was not shot down. It could carry any head, but even with a concrete head it weighed almost two tons. It was not found by the army, it was a threat, and the Polish authorities, after the fall of the Russian missile on Polish territory, did not even make any official claims against Russia.

The latest telephone survey was carried out by Kantar on June 5-6, 2023 on a nationwide, representative sample of 1,003 people over 18 years of age.
