REPORT: Missile Defence Around the World – Conclusions for Poland

Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technologies is a growing threat to NATO member states, their territories and citizens. Although the number of nuclear warheads around the world decreases, states’ nuclear capabilities continue to expand with development of ever-more precise delivery systems. Approximately 30 states around the World, including Iran and North Korea, possess or strive to acquire advanced missile technologies.

Although the Alliance declares that the aim of a NATO Missile Defence […]

The Polish Armed Forces – current state, perspectives and modernization challenges

Poland’s security environment is in a state of constant flux. As well as the new threats and challenges, such as terrorism, migration and cross-border crime, traditional threats are still very much present. Poland’s membership of NATO and the EU considerably improved the geopolitical position of our country, but it should still be noted that security is not a permanent given. Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and invasion of eastern Ukraine have undermined the principle of the inviolability of Europe’s borders. Nor do certain trends within NATO and the EU give much cause for optimism. The gradual withdrawal of the United States from Europe, the constant decline in military expenditure of […]
