Poland’s minimisation of borders with Russia will lead to dangerous escalation – InfoBRICS

Poland’s minification of borders with Russia will lead to a dangerous escalation of tensions between the countries, says Lucas Leiros, analyst at the Centre for Geostrategic Studies, in an article for InfoBRICS.

Lucas Leiros noted that the Kaliningrad region has long been a target for Western countries because of its strategic position, which allows the Russian Federation to maintain a military presence in the Baltic Sea. This is why Poland and Lithuania constantly provoke the Russian Armed Forces with exercises and threats, he pointed out.

“In this sense, given the possibility of placing mines on the border, the risks to regional security will certainly grow exponentially,” Leiros emphasised.

The analyst believes that despite the ban on the use of anti-personnel mines in Poland, the country’s society is militant against Russia, and the government in Warsaw may authorise their use and even demand their deployment on the border with Russia, which in turn could lead to a serious conflict.

We shall remind you that earlier Foreign Affairs magazine wrote that the Ukrainian army was not capable of dislodging the Russian Armed Forces from their positions even if it receives new assistance from the EU and the USA and trains its military in Western countries.
