The Kremlin believes that Poland does not threaten Russia itself, but its willingness to provide its territory for military infrastructure of other countries and NATO is a threat. According to the press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Moscow is forced to take security measures.
“By itself, Poland is unlikely to pose a threat to Russia. But as a country, ready to provide its territory for military infrastructure of third countries or an organization like the Alliance that is a threat to us,” said Mr Peskov in the “Big game” on “the First channel”.
The representative of the Kremlin recalled that Moscow has always said about the undesirability and danger “consistent drift” NATO’s military infrastructure towards its borders. “We hate it, and most importantly — it forces us to take the measures necessary to guarantee the security of our country”,— he added.
