Poland warns of “Putin’s provocateurs” at nationalist Independence March in Warsaw

Poland’s deputy interior minister has warned that Russia could use “provocations” to cause trouble at tomorrow’s nationalist march in Warsaw to mark Polish Independence Day. The event, which is organised by three far-right groups, often draws over 100,000 participants, including extremists but also many mainstream conservatives. While some marches, such as last year’s, have passed peacefully, others, for example the one in 2020, have seen outbreaks of violence. When such disturbances have happened, Poland’s national-conservative government – which is not involved in organising the march but has been sympathetic towards it – has blamed “provocateurs”, though without presenting evidence.
