Poland as a New Nuclear Superpower?


NATO member Poland should eventually get nuclear weapons as a security measure, a top Polish general has said.

Following Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Warsaw has been a key supporter of Kyiv and has warned of the danger posed by the Kremlin, which has made repeated nuclear threats.

Without mentioning Russia by name, Brigadier General Jaroslaw Kraszewski told Polish media outlet RMF FM that if Poland had nuclear weapons it would deter aggression from abroad because nuclear powers enjoy a high degree of security.

“I consider it a challenge of several years to have such an arsenal,” said Kraszewski, according to a translation. “I hope it will come to that.”

“I think this scenario is very realistic,” he added.
