Abstract

Lech Kaczyński's reflections on geopolitical issues were mainly related to the issues connected with the historical location of Poland, and especially the place of Poland and Poles in the pre-partition Poland. On the other hand, in his reflections on foreign policy one can notice observations relating to Poland's geographical location in the area of the Baltic-Black Sea Belt, also from a strategic perspective, far-reaching in relation primarily to Poland's energy resources. Considering the geopolitics, the geographical location was also seen in the context of opportunities and threats for conducting foreign and economic policy, and in such an approach one can notice the specific solutions promoted by President Kaczyński, especially as regards Poland's International activity in the prospect of activity in the post-Soviet area. Especially in the context of Ukraine (in a longer perspective also the Republic of Moldova and the Republic of Belarus) and the Baltic States, with particular emphasis on cooperation with the Republic of Lithuania, as well as cooperation in the Southern Caucasus with the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Republic of Armenia and, above all, Georgia.
In the article the author presents both the geopolitical concept of President Lech Kaczyński and the practical elements of its implementation.
