PULASKI POLICY PAPER – T.J. Omedi: Suspension of the INF Treaty – What’s next?

Pułaski Policy Paper No 2, 2019. 21 February 2019 The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that on February 2nd, 2019 the U.S. Department of State sent an official notice declaring a U.S. suspension of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). This decision is a follow-up of Donald Trump’s threats to withdraw from the bilateral agreement between the Russian Federation and the United States which banned land-based cruise and ballistic missiles with ranges of 500–5,500 km. The final U.S. withdrawal should take place in six months. According to Donald Trump’s administration, Russia has violated the treaty by producing and deploying the 9M729 (SSC-8) missiles. The U.S. decision has been supported by […]


PULASKI POLICY PAPER – M. Szopa: Poland’s Air Force to Procure New Fighter Aircraft: the ‘Harpia’ Programme

Pulaski Policy Paper No 1, 2019 January 7, 2019 In the aftermath of the political reforms of the late 1980s and the early 1990s, Poland’s policy makers recognised a growing need to procure a new fighter jet aircraft. At the time, the Polish Armed Forces operated only Soviet-built fighter jets of several types such as MiG-21, MiG-23, Su-20 and Su-22 fighter-bombers and a newly introduced MiG-29 fighter. Given the prospect of joining the North Atlantic Alliance, it seemed obvious that the Soviet-era jets would have to be gradually replaced with either brand new or second-hand aircraft fighters built in the West. As far as the latter one is concerned, Poland […]

The Ukrainian flotilla consisting of two artillery boats (proj. 58155 Gyurza-M) and the A947 tugboat was on its way to the port of Mariupol, on the coast of the Sea of Azov, in order to join other vessels deployed in the region.

PULASKI POLICY PAPER – T. Otłowski: What’s next for Syria?

Pułaski Policy Paper No. 13, 2018. November 9th, 2018 After seven years of a bloody civil war, Syrian conflict is coming to an end and a new order emerging. Ba’ath party regime has managed – with the help from regional and global allies – to survive the revolutionary upheaval of Sunni minority, which was also supported by foreign states. President Bashar al-Assad maintained control over the country and leadership of his political base, which suggests that the government in Damascus will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future. However, the internal – social and political – situation in Syria may undergo fundamental changes. Moreover, the complicated network of alliances and interdependencies […]


PULASKI POLICY PAPER: A. Domachowska – Implications of the historical agreement between Macedonia and Greece

Pulaski Policy Paper No 12, 2018. 20 September  2018 The agreement between Macedonia and Greece puts an end to a long-standing dispute, which impeded Skopje’s international ambitions.

The historic agreement between Greece and Macedonia was signed on June 17th, 2018 by the two foreign ministers – Nikola Dimitrov and Nikos Kotzias, and in the presence of respective Prime Ministers, Zoran Zaev and Alexis Tsipras.  Also present were representatives of the UE – Federica Mogherini (High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy) […]


PULASKI POLICY PAPER – S. Koziej: Social awareness is necessary for effective modern security systems

Pułaski Policy Paper No. 11, 2018. August 27th, 2018 National security, defined as a process of minimising the risks and threats to survival and development of a nation and the state in an uncertain and dangerous environment, becomes increasingly more complex. National security goes beyond military security and is no longer limited to state institutions. The state, its armed forces and “uniform” services no longer hold a monopoly over security. One reason for this is that non-military risks (i.e. disinformation) become ever-more dangerous for the state, various social groups, non-governmental entities and lives of individual citizens. National security cannot be entrusted solely to public administration bodies or specialised operational entities […]


PULASKI POLICY PAPER: Can the EU uphold Iran Nuclear deal?

Pulaski Policy Paper No 10, 2018. 6 August 2018 In May 2018, US president Donald Trump withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA) agreement, signed under the presidency of Barack Obama by the US, EU and 3 other world powers. The United States also announced two new rounds of sanctions on Iran, to take place in September and November of 2018. Meanwhile, the economies of the EU member states bear the financial consequences of these decisions. Even though the European signatories have not abandoned their 2015 commitments and EU is still trying to preserve the deal, Washington actively forces European governments and businesses to sever economic ties with […]
