    President Duda Anticipates Details on Polish Military Counterintelligence’s Collaboration with Russian FSB: Echoes from the Recent “Reset” Episode

    “President Andrzej Duda will expect information regarding the 2013 agreement on cooperation between the Polish Military Counterintelligence Service and the Russian Federal Security Service,” said presidential advisor Paweł Sałek today. This echoes yesterday’s episode of the documentary series “Reset,” in which Prof. Sławomir Cenckiewicz and editor Michał Rachoń presented a shocking document about the cooperation between the Polish Military Counterintelligence Service and the Russian FSB.

    “Reset”: Poland Allegedly Spied on NATO for Russians

    In the latest episode of the documentary series “Reset” aired on Tuesday by Polish Television, it was revealed that an agreement was reached in 2013 between the Polish Military Counterintelligence Service and the Russian Federal Security Service. It was also disclosed that the then Prime Minister Donald Tusk had approved such cooperation two years earlier. Under this agreement, Poland’s military services committed to informing Russian authorities about NATO activities.

    “This is a completely surprising matter. It has gained significant attention in the media space today due to this documentary, but historically, it should be mentioned that some information on this topic appeared in the media around 2013-2014. However, these were journalistic speculations that circulated before 2015,”

    said presidential advisor Paweł Sałek on Wednesday on Polskie Radio 24.

    “However, this is indeed a very serious problem because we need to ask and address this question, and here the President will also expect information, even though the cooperation between Polish services and the Presidential Palace is currently at a very good level,”

    he emphasized.

    When asked from whom President Andrzej Duda would expect information, Sałek replied, “The President is in constant contact with Polish services, and these pieces of information, as I mentioned, flow efficiently at this level today. However, when it comes to this aspect, one must ask: should such an agreement be signed at a time when we, as NATO members, might also face certain problems.”

    “This concerns the effects and the nature of mutual cooperation between the services or, rather, recruitment attempts, because that’s what we need to ask… what situations may have occurred, as intelligence services, both offensive and defensive, always try to acquire personal sources of information, as it is natural and inherent in this. So the question is whether our services were not exposed to various offensive actions by the Russians,” he added, recalling that this cooperation was initiated shortly before Russia’s aggression against Ukraine in 2014.

    Przydacz: A Shock for Skeptics

    “New shocking information is coming to light about how pro-Russian policies were pursued by the former government,” said Marcin Przydacz, head of the Presidential International Policy Office, on Wednesday. He pointed out that this is evident from the agreements that were signed and the notes that reveal the content of conversations between the Warsaw government at the time and Moscow.
