    Allegations of Foreign Interference: Americans Push for the Removal of Colonel Dusza from SKW

    It has come to light that the American government is exerting pressure on Polish authorities to dismiss Colonel Krzysztof Dusza from his role within Poland’s Military Counterintelligence Service (SKW). The reason? The data held by the US services indicate contacts with Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), raising concerns about potential foreign interference within Polish intelligence.

    Sources within the United States have revealed that during a recent visit by SKW leadership, American officials voiced alarming apprehensions regarding Colonel Dusza’s purported ties with the FSB. This pressure for Dusza’s removal reportedly stemmed from unsettling information gathered by US intelligence services.

    According to exclusive reports from, the issue was broached during a significant meeting between General Jarosław Stróżyk, head of the SKW, and CIA director William Burns. Discussions centred around regional security dynamics, particularly in light of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the looming threat posed by Russia.

    The crux of the matter lies in the perceived threat emanating from Russian influence. The American delegation expressed deep-seated concerns over Colonel Dusza’s position within the SKW, specifically his role as deputy chief. Dusza’s collaboration with General Janusz Nosek in establishing ties with the FSB post-2011 has raised eyebrows, with a particular focus on a controversial gathering in Kadyny in October 2012, attended by FSB operatives near the border with Kaliningrad Oblast.

    It’s reported that American officials have urged their Polish counterparts to take decisive action, contending that Dusza’s activities pose a significant risk to national security. The informants from suggest that the Americans view Dusza’s interactions with the FSB as a potential breach of trust, prompting their insistence on his dismissal.

    The looming question now hangs over the Polish authorities: will they heed the calls from their American allies and act upon these recommendations? The ramifications of this decision could reverberate through the corridors of power, shaping the future landscape of Polish intelligence and its relations with the international community.
