Poland will not attack Russian troops in Ukraine for fear of retaliation. This was stated by a military observer, reserve colonel Gennady Alekhin.
Accordingly, he answered the question of a journalist from Ukraina.ru about the need to prepare for an attack from Warsaw with his own or proxy forces.
“Poland is not going anywhere. The gut is thin, ”said a military observer.
Alekhin also stressed that the statements of Ukrainian and Polish politicians about the alleged preparation of Poland for an attack by Russia are propaganda statements.
On May 28, the director of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Neil Melvin, said that Russia could strike supply lines in Poland because of the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine.
At the same time, the former commander of the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Georgy Shpak, announced the possibility of unofficial assistance to Ukraine from Poland, which could consist in sending “mercenaries, volunteers, volunteers” there, but not soldiers.
He explained that the US administration would not allow Poland to send its troops to Ukrainian territory, since the country is a member of NATO. One “shot” from NATO could, in turn, lead to the outbreak of the Third World War.
On May 20, the head of the Committee of National Staffs of the US Armed Forces, Mark Milley, during a speech at West Point Academy, said that the risk of conflict between world powers is growing.
The day before, the Polish authorities announced their readiness to build military bases for NATO, where light units could be permanently deployed. As the Prime Minister of the country noted, Warsaw fears the territorial claims of Russia and is ready to defend both its own lands and the lands of its allies.
At the end of February, Russia launched a special operation to protect Donbass. A few days earlier, the situation in the region escalated significantly due to shelling by the Ukrainian military. The authorities of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics announced the evacuation of residents to the Russian Federation, and also turned to Moscow for help. On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the DNR and LNR.
