He claims that the opposition wants to restore the status quo before the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party came to power in 2015, repair the damage done by PiS to the judiciary and the media, and revenge on PiS for its reforms and achievements.

Janecki criticizes the opposition for being anti-Polish and pro-European, as well as for relying on external forces to undermine PiS. He accuses the opposition of hoping for a “starvation” of Poland by blocking the EU funds that Poland is entitled to receive under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).
