The Deputy Chief of the General Staff of Belarus, Major General Ruslan Kosygin, threatens to strike Polandʼs infrastructure in response to "provocations by Western countries."
As BELTA reports, Kosygin said this while discussing the strengthening of NATOʼs military presence on the eastern flanks of the Alliance.
"In the event of a conflict, the territory of Poland with its military infrastructure becomes the primary target of attack, namely decision-making centers, elements of the management system, points of permanent deployment of the national armed forces, arsenals and bases, as well as critically important objects of their economy and transport infrastructure. As the head of state has said more than once, the answer will be immediate. It is they who will be hit if they try to talk to our state from a position of strength," Kosygin said.
- Against the background of Russiaʼs war against Ukraine and increasingly frequent threats to the EU from the Russian Federation and Belarus, NATO decided to strengthen its eastern borders. Additional troops are being deployed in Poland, the Baltic states, and Romania. In Latvia, they even want to return compulsory military service.
