This week, Notes from Poland editor-at-large Stanley Bill talks to Agnieszka Romaszewska-Guzy, director of Belsat television, a Polish service broadcasting into Belarus in Belarusian and Russian languages.
They discuss the background to the current mass protests in Belarus, Poland’s broader interest in its eastern neighbours, the muted international response, and the threat of Russian intervention.
Also check out our earlier episode with Timothy Garton Ash on Poland’s transition to democracy after 1989 and the current PiS-led government.
