The Defence Minister of Poland had said that Russia is persistent to pose a severe threat to NATO. He also said that Moscow was analytically preparing for the aggression against alliance.
Poland, that is a former Soviet satellite state, dreads that Russia is in the quest of extending its influence beyond its borders after the Moscow annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in year 2014 & continues to back the armed separatists in the eastern Ukraine.
2 Russian war planes, earlier this month had flown simulating the attack passes near a United States’ guided missile destroyer that had just moved from the Polish port of Gdynia.
One of the officials of the United States said that this was one of the supreme hostile interactions between the 2 sides in the recent memory.
‘’So far, all the Russian behaviour attests to systematic preparation for aggressive action,” said Antoni Macierewicz, the Defence Minister to Rzeczpospolita daily in an interview that was published today.
“And it is time to talk about it openly.”
Warsaw will host NATO heads of state summit in the month of July, where it will drive for an amplified military presence on alliance’s eastern flank.
NATO had deferred collaboration with Russia over its role conflict in Ukraine, in 2014. Russia says that the deployment of the significant NATO forces near to its borders would disrupt the NATO-Russia Founding Act of 1997.
