Poland is concerned about recent actions of Russia in the military sphere and keeps in readiness of its armed forces, said the Minister of defence of the Republic, Anthony Macierewicz, answering the question about placement in the Kaliningrad region rocket complexes “Iskander”.

“We take into account all messages including those, which indicate the possible presence of missiles “Iskander”, and even in a special configuration, in the territory of the Kaliningrad region”, – quotes Makarevich TASS. According to him, “the Polish armed forces and intelligence system, including in collaboration with allies, are in constant readiness to monitor and guarantee the security of Poland and the partner countries”.

The defense Minister said that reports of Russian missile complexes are told “anxiety”.

Macierewicz also said that the Polish government will try as soon as possible to resolve the issue with the purchase of helicopters for the army after refusing to purchase French military helicopters H 225M Caracal.

According to Makarevich, “it’s urgent”. “But I want to emphasize that the current situation will not affect the Polish defense capabilities. We will strive to quickly obtain the necessary number of helicopters,” he said. According to him, the government wants to “conclude treaties that will allow you to quickly equip the Polish army essential multi-purpose helicopters, and also to give industry the opportunity to use new technologies”.
