Thus, according to the law on the allocation of 2% of GDP for defense in Poland, the size of the military budget in the current year will be 12 billion dollars or 41,4 billion zlotys (in 2017 it was 10,97 billion dollars, i.e. 37,3 billion zł). The Minister of National Defense will have 11,6 billion dollars (40 billion zlotys) at its disposal, a significant part of which will be spent on capital expenditures (about 27%), and funding for the technical modernization of the army this year will be increased by 13,3%.

About 0,87 billion dollars (3 billion zlotys) Warsaw intends to spend on the purchase of military equipment, items of clothing, fuel and medical equipment. Current expenses and expenditures on training military personnel will amount to 2,3 billion dollars (7 billion zlotys) - this is 18,3% of the budget.

If we compare individual items of the new budget with 2017, we can talk about a reduction in the volume of the construction investment plan, which is associated with the completion of a number of projects; moreover, in the 2018, investment in 150 of the new programs will begin.

In addition, it is expected to reduce funding for military facilities of the Allied infrastructure, which is also associated with the completion of projects under the NATO Investment Program (NSIP, NATO Security Investment Program).

Among the largest expenses will be the purchase of air defense systems and systems for supporting and displaying the battlefield. Significant funding will be required for repairs, modernization of the barracks fund and facilities of the educational and material base, modernization aviation warehouses.

    How, I want to catch up with the older "striped brother" ....
    A frog, having seen Vol in the meadow,

    She began to catch up with him in preternity:

    She was envious.

    And puff, puff and pout.

    - "Look, quack, what, will I be from him?" -

    Girlfriend says. "No, gossip, far away!"

    "Look, how now I am swollen widely.

    Well, what is it?

    Am I replenished? "-" Almost nothing. "

    "Well, how now?" - "Well then." Puffed and puffed

    And my venturer ended on

    That, not equal to the Ox,

    She burst from a strain and - scattered.

      ... Poor devil

    Interestingly, what has brought local experts into such a stir? The military budget of the Russian Federation over the past 10 years has also seriously increased. Poland is a sovereign country and has the right to spend its money on anything. The Poles who forgot were always good fighters, by the way

      Therefore, their whole history was beaten by all neighbors who are not lazy: Russians, Prussians, Austrians, Swedes, Turks, Crimean Tatars. Even such rabble as Zaporozhye Cossacks, and then they beat the Poles laughing

      And why is she suddenly sovereign?
      A sovereign state is a state that has a clearly defined territory in which it exercises internal and external sovereignty, has a permanent population, a government, and is independent of other states

      Is Poland then independent of other states? Or has an independent foreign and domestic policy, what are you kind about?

    They would think that EU subsidies are running out. Fatty times are ending, and they are increasing military spending. Actually, their problems ..))
