He also quoted the late president, Lech Kaczyński, who once said: "[F]irst Georgia, then Ukraine, then the Baltic states, then perhaps Poland "-

"Hence, we anticipate such activities through our activity within the North Atlantic Alliance, through our activity on missions, through modernizing and equipping the Polish Army and by increasing manpower," the minister added.

He spoke of the changes NATO pursued since Russia's attacks on Georgia and Ukraine.

"There are allied forces on NATO's eastern flank. There are American troops in Poland, there are British troops, there are Romanian and Croatian troops, we are present in Latvia, we are present in Romania [...] We show that we are close, prepared and in solidarity with each other. In this way, we deter a potential aggressor," said Mariusz Błaszczak.
