While Fidesz holds a comfortable majority in Hungary, and doing a good job of winding up the EU, Poland still ranks as a quite solidly right-wing country as these polls show- Civic Platform (PO) is centre-right, more conservative than the UK Tories, while Law and Justice (PiS) and United Poland (SP) are further to the Right. Congress of the New Right (KNP) and Poland Comes First (PJN) round it off nicely.

It appears that the traditionalist conservative/national conservative current is quite rich in Eastern Europe as evidenced by the parties in Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia adhering to it, and further afield, Georgia and Armenia. And that's a good base to build an alliance among such parties.

I don't really like the Civic Platform(PO), there are many populists and, above all, corrupt people in this party. They give our money away to their friends and relatives. They've also built huge bureaucracy(I wonder why? Maybe to give well-paid jobs to their friends and relatives? It's unnecessary and causes wasting of time and money. It may be also a result of EU's policies, supported by PO). PiS is only a bit better. I like their Christian values and patriotism, but they're anti-German and anti-Russian at the same time. This can't end well. However, both those parties are lesser evil compared to the SLD(Alliance of the Democratic Left) or RP(Palikot's Movement - God help those people!) My favorite party is Congress of the New Right. They label themselves as 'conservative liberals' - conservative on social issues, liberal(or even libertarian) on economic issues. One of their leaders, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, is a monarchist who despises democracy. He may seem a little bit eccentric, but he's really clever.

Yes, Russophobia is widespread not only in Poland but in the Baltic states and Ukraine as well. Much of it was because of their experiences of Commumism, though in Poland of course it goes back even further.

In Lithuania you've got the Homeland Union - Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TS-LKD), Order and Justice (TT) and Christian Party (KP), and also the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania (AWPL), the last of which doesn't have the best relationship with the rest I gather, despite being on the same end of the spectrum!
