Poland Sees No Threats From Russian Side – Presidential Office

Posted: August 5, 2016 in Uncategorized

The Russian side poses no threats for Poland due to the country’s strengthened military capacity, the Polish president’s Press Service Head Marek Magierowski said on.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A NATO summit was held on July 8-9 in Poland’s capital and focused on relations with Russia. During the summit, the Alliance decided to strengthen its military presence in Eastern Europe on a rotational basis with four battalions in Poland and in the Baltic nations.

“I think no. Basically due to the NATO Summit, which was recently held in Warsaw, thanks to the efforts of President Andrzej Duda, Poland, as well as other countries, will have strengthened capacity in the military context. This is a very explicit signal, directed to Russia and meaning that any intervention in any form, either in a form of an attack, or in a form of a hybrid war, or in a form of attacks in cyberspace will not pay off,” he said Thursday on Polish television when answering a question on whether Poland sees threats from Russia in the near future.

According to Magierowski, such signal will increase after NATO military personnel are deployed to Poland and the Baltic states, so that Russia could not undertake “risky and reckless measures.”
