Poland deploys 10,000 Soldiers along Belarus border

Poland is planning to deploy up to 10,000 troops to the border with Belarus, as the German news website n-tv.de reports.

According to Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak, speaking in a radio interview, Poland plans to deploy a total of 10,000 troops to the border with Belarus. Of these, 4,000 soldiers will directly support the border guard, while 6,000 will be held in reserve. The relocation of the army closer to the Belarusian border is being done with the aim of deterring potential aggressors and discouraging them from daring to attack.

Poland has concerns about its security, especially since hundreds of Wagner mercenaries left for Belarus last month after their failed coup attempt in Russia. According to the Minsk leadership, the Wagner mercenaries are scheduled to assist the Belarusian army in its training.

Poland, which is a member of the EU and NATO, has a border of 418 kilometers with Belarus.
