Poland concerned by Russia’s Baltic military actions

Poland’s defence minister Tomasz Siemoniak said Thursday he was concerned by the level of Russia’s recent naval and air force activity in the Baltic Sea region.

“For a few days now, there has been unprecedented Russian activity, from its Baltic fleet to flights over the Baltic sea,” Siemoniak told broadcaster TVN24. He added that most of the activity was in international waters and airspace and Sweden was the country most affected.

Siemoniak said Russia was “not preparing to attack” but it was testing Nato defences, which ” doesn’t help to build good relations and trust.”
