for a week or so i've been subscribing to the Eur-activ newsletter,
you can (as i did) select to receive only news on "Europes East"
I've been following the Wilno troubles and Ukraines EU membership decision
"I judged the Poles by their enemies. And I found it was an almost unfailing
truth that their enemies were the enemies of magnanimity and manhood.
If a man loved slavery, if he loved usury, if he loved terrorism and
trampled mire of materialistic politics, I have always found that he added
to these affections the passion of a hatred of Poland. She could be judged
in the light of that hatred; and the judgment has proved to be right".
- G K. Chesterton,1922
