The article casts a new light on one of the most widespread stereotypes concerning the Polish and the
Russian relations, i.e. a conviction that the Poles are hostile towards the Russians and vice-versa.
Therefore the author discusses political changes that have occurred in the Slavic countries during the
last twenty five years, conflicts among the Slavs and their cultural background as well as reactions of
foreigners towards to the cultural distinctness. The author also enumerates arguments showing that
nowadays there is no rational justification for maintaining this stereotype, which creates barriers in
the relations between the Poles and the Russians.
