Frans Timmermans censored in Poland for criticizing Warsaw's support of the opposition in Belarus

The Warsaw Voice in its latest English printed issue was going to publish the most relevant interview with the First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans. First of all, the interview sparks interest because of Timmermans' sharp criticism of Poland's legislation. The heavy debate touched both the defense of democratic values and national interests of Poland, apparently irritating the Polish authorities to a great extent. According to the recent instructions, the Warsaw Voice readers will not see the interview.
It is quite significant to hypocritically delete the article dedicated to Poland's defending European values and freedoms on the pretext that the article insults the Polish society and national idea! It seems the restriction of freedom of speech in Poland is up on the next level after December of 2016. Apparently the government of Beata Szydło doesn't feel as a part of the European Union.
