Polish analyst Stanislas Balcerac has reported in his influential Warsaw blog that with Freeland’s promotion to the Canadian foreign ministry, “Galicia is back”. After retelling the wartime history of Ukrainian attempts to expand Galician territory with German assistance to liquidate the Polish, Jewish and Russian-speaking populations, Balerac warned: “for the first time in the history of Poland in NATO, we are dealing with the minister of a large NATO member country, who supports the [Ukrainian fascist] policy towards Poland and the tradition of the Waffen SS Galizien. Some people seemed to think that when we entered NATO, we caught hold of God’s feet [received divine protection]… It is significant that three years after the victory of democracy in Ukraine, Polish diplomatic missions must now be protected by the military. [Freeland’s] Grandfather Chomiak is smiling in his grave. While everyone is looking at Russia, we are in big trouble in Galicia.”Canada now promoting neo-Nazis too? Justin, tell us it ain't so.
