Marek Beylin, Gazeta Wyborcza’s commentator, is urging Greece and EU to make a last-ditch effort to reach an agreement which should be, however, more favourable to Greeks. In the absence of it, the Greek crisis may spill over into the rest of Europe, including Poland, destroy “European solidarity”, strengthen europhobes and undermine Europeans’ “faith in the EU”. According to Beylin, "Grexit" will also pose other serious threats –

Bankrupt and abandoned, Greece may permanently destabilise Europe and become a breeding ground for extreme forces – fascist and neocommunist – radiating across the continent. Compared to them, Prime minister Tsipras’ Syriza would look as a good-natured centrist party. Most probably, Greece would also form an alliance with Russia thus weakening Europe’s security.
