Poland was among several European countries visited by 28-year-old Australian terror maniac Brenton Tarrant, who killed 50 people in an attack on mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Poland’s RMF FM radio broadcaster informed unofficially that Tarrant lived in Poland last December.

Before carrying out his horrific attack, the shooter wrote about his visit to Poland in a 74-page online “manifesto”, in which he ranted about who he is and why he carried out the attacks.

According to RMF FM, Tarrant covered over 2,000 kilometers in Poland on highways and country roads.

This is shown by data from his mobile phone which was monitored by the Polish intelligence services.

Among other countries, Tarrant mentions Poland as one of the countries in which Europe “will not find relief” from the migration problem.

In his ‘manifesto’, the killer wrote: "There is not a beautiful meadow where you can lay your tired body, tilt your head and wait until it's all over, you will not find relief, not in Iceland, not in Poland, not in New Zealand, not in Argentina in Ukraine I know because I was there."
