The Polish command continues the formation of the Territorial Defense Forces to counter the “aggressive Russia”, the National Interest magazine writes.


Territorial defense troops - the great hope of the Polish authorities


"The ruling party of the Seimas" Law and Justice "has always characterized Russia as the greatest threat to the national security of Poland and since the election to parliament in 2015, it laid the foundations for the creation of the Territorial Defense Forces," the article cites. RIA News.

Also, the ex-Minister of Defense of Poland, Antoni Macerevich, declared the need to create "light volunteer infantry" at the regional level as a supplement to the existing armed forces.

As the newspaper writes, "in addition to the usual tasks of protecting key infrastructure and providing additional security for military purposes, the Territorial Defense Forces will counteract disinformation, repel cyber attacks, support patriotic ideals, regulate situations in crisis or martial law."

Today, these troops have about 7-thousand fighters, but by the 2019 year, that is, almost half a year, this figure is planned to be increased to 50-thousand.

Recall that in January the new Polish defense minister called Russia the most "serious threat to the country."

      Again preparing "partisans"? Which besides each other (the army of Craiova and the army of Ludov) will not be able to fight with anyone. Well, except that - according to old memory, they will cut banderlogs, mutually.

        And in my opinion, the monuments to the Soviet Soldiers of the Liberators are the most "serious threat to the country." Action Judge ...

              Not a fig yourself ?! recourse
              How quickly Poland moved from the rhetoric of its military offensives to Russia to the rhetoric of its territorial defense! laughing
              But the position of Poland in the matter of its own defense can no longer be corrected. Matserevich and Kaczynski in this matter were very, very "tried"!

        Yes, judging by the tasks:
        As the newspaper writes, "in addition to the usual tasks of protecting key infrastructure and providing additional security for military purposes, the Territorial Defense Forces will counteract disinformation, repel cyber attacks, support patriotic ideals, regulate situations in crisis or martial law."
        This is more like a party assault or security detachments in Germany are similar.

      Russia also forms territorial defense divisions to counteract, without quotes, the aggressive actions of NATO and, including Poland ... In the next message to the Federal Assembly, the Supreme should not show cartoons about missiles, but specifically the coordinates laid down in combat units - directly for clarity on-line from the satellite: the country is a settlement and with the approach, such as the time of arrival, to the street, the house inclusive ... To dive deeper into reality, here are for these brave guys with photos and their household! laughing

    create a “light volunteer infantry”
    And I think that this "infantry" is not created to oppose Russia, but to possibly restore order in the Ukrainian territories captured in the future, which the Poles have long been squinting at. And if they still promise this "territorial defense" allot of land for free and a dozen Ukrainian slaves, then they will definitely recruit 50 thousand people.

    It’s very curious, they don’t really catch up, that in modern conditions the only chance to survive in a big mess is not to host alien missile defense and air defense systems, and also not to make unnecessary movements so that the powers that be do not consider this aggression ?! Otherwise, there will be no one and no one to bury, at least 100500 “light volunteer infantry” will be recruited - nuclear cremation is quite an effective means.

    You are laughing in vain. Poland significantly strengthened its
    armed forces in recent years. And rationally, right
    rearmament. Without nuclear weapons, Russia will be able (if a war breaks out) to seize the Baltic, but
    will no longer be able to advance to Poland.
    In Poland, a monolithic nationalist population.
    Of course, nationalism (in any country) easily develops into fascism or Nazism.
    This may threaten Poland in a certain situation.

      You also keep in mind that, a priori, Russia will not attack either the Baltic States or Poland, going beyond layered defense. A completely pointless activity. T.O. NATO considers the Polish troops as part of the contingent of the invasion, but for this they will not be enough in any case.
      As for nationalism, I agree with you - this is a threat not only to Poland itself, but also to its future within the EU, as well as for the EU itself.

      Sorry, but you use patterns of the 30s of the last century, Poland seems to have a good command, run around the United States at high points, for example, tank ones from the German Leopards1 to 72 of the USSR, and all this monolithicity will wear out in moments, only the youth are nationalist-minded, but completely untrained will be thrown under the tank tracks (like cavalry on the tanks of the Wehrmacht), and the rest of the locksmith will rush to Germany (communicated with them))) they will not fight)
