Poland must build the strongest land army in Europe to deter further Russian expansion westward, as Russian dictator Vladimir Putin responds only to force, Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said in a Twitter post on Nov. 14.
“Only the argument of force appeals to Putin,” said Błaszczak.
“Only a clear signal that the Polish Army will be able to independently defend its territory will stop Russia from further expansion westward.”
The minister is adamant that Poland should continue to build a 300,000-strong military force to deter Moscow.
"We must not deviate from the path of building the strongest land army in Europe," he concluded.
On Oct. 25, media reports said that Poland in October-November will conduct military exercises near the border with Russia and Belarus.
