The V4 Report would like to use this occasion to salute Premier Beata Szydlo for the honorable and courageous leadership she provided Poland with over the last two years. Beata was a strong, honest and reliable voice for Poland and Visegrad. The PiS owes much of their success and popularity today due to the magnificent leadership of Szydlo. She has left Poland with a strong foundation to build upon. The future is bright.

The slanderous attacks directed at her from the media, a bitter and defeated Washington Post columnist, and an envious opposition offers more proof of her success at accomplishing something her opponents never could: winning the hearts and minds of the Polish people.

It is somewhat sad for us because her start (as PM two years ago) coincided with our start. We could always rely on her to do and say the right thing. Szydlo’s convictions, values and tenacity made us proud. As the V4 Report likes to say, she always could be counted on to “answer the bell” for her people.

To be honest, it will be hard for us to take down her picture from our cover page. We wish her nothing but the best in her next endeavor. She will be missed. Onward Beata!
