Military maneuvers in Poland, a country that borders Ukraine, would be a “very clear” signal to NATO allies as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Washington is in talks with Berlin and Warsaw to conduct joint military maneuvers in Poland in response to the threat to NATO’s eastern border from Russia, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said on the evening of February 26.
“For Eastern European countries such as Poland, the Baltic countries, Slovakia and others, it is important to see that Germany, as the most important European member of the alliance, and the United States, as a transatlantic partner, are fulfilling their defense obligations,” he said.
He also added that the alliance is “much stronger and more cohesive than last year” before the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
At the same time, Pistorius is sure that NATO should not be a party to the conflict in Ukraine, continuing to provide assistance.
Meanwhile, Poland plans to train Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets.
Recall, on February 17, Polish President Andrzej Duda said that Warsaw would consider the transfer of MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, which are in service with the Polish army, and was ready to join the coalition to provide Ukraine with F-16 aircraft. And the first German Leopard 2 tanks have already been delivered to Ukraine.
