Poland to Add Military Presence on Eastern Border

Poland announced today (Tuesday) its long-term plan to place some of its military strength along its eastern border, closer to both the Ukraine and Russia, due to Russia’s intervention in the Ukraine, Reuters has reported.

The NATO member is concerned that it may be the Kremlin’s next target for expansion after it annexed the Crimean Peninsula earlier this year.

“We want to strengthen our units in the east of Polancd,” Tomasz Siemoniak, Poland’s Defense Minister, said on public radio. However, he declined to say how many additional troops or units were being discussed.
