WW3 Signs: Poland Wants Russia & NATO To Talk About Ukraine, Putin Threatens With Lethal S-300 Batteries
NATO and Russia are set to talk to each other, but Poland warned that the meeting should focus on Russia’s withdrawal from Ukraine’s territories. However, even with such warning, it does not seem like Russia plans to stop its world denomination plans anytime soon, as new weapons are expected to drop.Advertisement
Poland Warns Russia and NATO?
Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said that Russia and NATO should focus on Moscow’s withdrawal from the Ukrainian territory. The minister suggested the idea following the statement from NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg about the planned formal talks with Russia following the summit in Warsaw this week.
“Russia is an occupying power, every day innocent people, civilians are killed by Russia soldiers who are the aggressors,” said Macierewicz on Polish TV via Yahoo.
“We are not going to discuss defense plans with Russia. With Russia we can only discuss when and how they are going to withdraw from the occupied territories,” added the official.
Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the 2014 intervention in Ukraine poked at NATO and its complacency. The incident also emphasized that the alliance needed to strengthen its readiness and resources to address the new set of security challenges.
Stoltenberg said Monday that the alliance is “working with Russia to hold another meeting of the (NATO-Russia) council shortly after the summit.”
Russia’s New Weapons
However, NATO and Poland may need to prepare for a possible conflict as Russia appears to be preparing new lethal weapons. According to National Interest, satellite imagery confirms Russia has deployed new surface-to-air missile systems to Belarus. The region is Moscow’s frontline ally and its possible Eastern European buffer state.
The report also said that the delivery of new weapons could mark the resurgent power’s strategy to put up and combine the two countries’ air defense networks. The partnership seems to be progressing despite the friction in the relationship. Specifically, it appears that additional S-300 near Polatsk and Grodno could be found along Polish and Lithuanian borders as noted by the satellite imagery.
