6th May 2022 - With the European Commission considering a full ban on Russian gas imports within the sixth wave of sanctions against Moscow, there is discord among the V4 countries. Whereas Poland is eager to dump all energy supplies from Moscow, Hungary would veto the ban as 95% of its gas comes from Kremlin-controlled Gazprom.

3rd May 2022 - As unlikely as it might sound, the modern city of Harbin, in today's northeastern China, has Polish roots. It was founded in 1898 by a Polish engineer employed in the construction of the Transiberian railway. After that, a 10k people strong Polish community prospered in Harbin for dozens of years. Then this easternmost branch of the Polish diaspora was dispersed by the events triggered by World War 2. Today only a few Polish Harbiners are still alive and preserve the memory of their bygone Chinese life.
