US Arms Warehouses in Poland Will Escalate Tensions – Vice Admiral

Commenting on the Polish Defense Ministry’s recent statements that it is holding talks with the US on the stationing of military warehouses in Poland, Vice Admiral and politician Marek Toczek told Sputnik that such a move would not increase Polish national security, and would result only in a further escalation of tensions between NATO and Russia.

On Sunday, Polish media reported that Warsaw was in talks with the US Defense Department about setting up military supply depots for US equipment and heavy weapons on Polish territory and elsewhere in Eastern Europe. Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak had noted that “it’s been our longtime wish to have maximum US military presence in Poland and NATO’s entire eastern flank as a whole.”

Commenting on the possibility of an arms buildup in the region, Toczek told Sputnik that “this is another step toward the sharpening of tensions, which could lead to a great tragedy. In no way does this step serve in normalizing relations.” The Polish navy veteran turned-politician added that in his view, the move “will not increase Poland’s national security.”
