There’s a large tattoo on Mateusz Piskorski’s body, a remainder of his nationalist past: it depicts a snake eating its own tail. For the past year, Piskorski has been Russia’s most important man in Poland – and he has worked in the zone of soft influence for years. Now he’s under arrest, due to accusations of espionage. He is thought to have cooperated with Russian intel, accept operational tasks and manipulate society’s attitudes. What happend to former Polish MP that push him behind the bars?
