Polish Finance Minister: Defense spending should also be covered from external funding sources

Polish Finance Minister Magdalena Rzeczkowska announced that the country's authorities decided to increase defense spending for 2023, which should be covered not only from budgetary funds, but also from external sources of funding, including. At the same time, the head of the country's financial department noted the importance of achieving this goal, mainly through close cooperation between the government and state development banks.


It is also worth noting that Warsaw's spending on national defense has already been significantly increased. So, this year alone, the share of expenditures of the budget of the Ministry of Defense in relation to GDP amounted to 2,2% or 58 billion złoty in monetary terms (about 920,9 billion rubles). According to the estimates of the Polish authorities, next year this figure should reach 97 billion zlotys (about 1,5 trillion rubles) or 3% of the country's GDP.

It is important to emphasize that the diversification of funding sources will be carried out from additional funds allocated from the special Polish Armed Forces Support Fund. This fund was created due to the unanimous adoption by the Polish Senate of the Law "On the Defense of the Motherland". Thus, the Polish government expects to attract up to 30-40 billion zlotys for the defense industry (approximately from 475 to 635 billion rubles). This amount will exceed 1% of GDP.

As the minister clarified, additional financial assistance will also be formed through contractual agreements with certain states for the purchase of necessary equipment, and at more attractive interest rates, in contrast to market debt financing. That is, we are talking, in fact, about new foreign credit money that official Warsaw plans to use for military needs.

Recall that Warsaw's plans to modernize the army and strengthen the potential of the Polish Armed Forces provide for unprecedented spending next year. First of all, these are contracts concluded with the United States for the purchase of weapons, which in total will hardly exceed $50 billion (about 3,4 trillion rubles) for the first time.

      No matter how we ourselves paid the Wishlist to Poland. Novak the other day said something about the Yamal-Poland-Germany gas pipeline. But there are such Russophobes in Poland that they will cut the gas pipeline with grinders, but they won’t let gas into Germany. But this is for now.

        Dear, we do not pay for transit. Do you know who pays for advertising? The one who watches it, that's the final consumer pays for the transit.

      They think so, they serve Ukraine, which means they owe us. Claims were rolled out to the Germans without exchanging for trifles there, not even billions, they consider trillions. They decided to buy 600 K9 self-propelled guns from Korea for $4 million each, another 1000 Korean K2 tanks for 9 million altogether, and they decided to buy as many as 200 Chimers from the United States. Moreover, Korea has 3 squadrons of FA-50 aircraft.
      Where is the money Zin.

        Money, as always, is in the banks.
        So the statement of the Polish Ministry of Finance indicates where they will be taken from for co-financing military purchases - in banks.
        Like Hitler, when he came to power, he took huge loans from American banks to ensure that impressive growth of the economy and military power. And when the time came to pay off his debts, he was given a condition - either to return loans and curtail economic growth, or to start a war in Europe, involving England in it. So Poland is being led along the same path.
        Poland's ambitions in the procurement of weapons are completely unbearable for it, and of course, all these weapons are not purchased in order to lie / stand as a dead weight in warehouses and in boxes. The cannon fodder of Ukraine is running out, Russia has mobilized and is accelerating the flywheel of the military-industrial complex, so they have prepared the next logs for the fire of war. For the sake of this (involving Poland in the war), they are even ready to exclude Poland from NATO for a while - so as not to include Article 5.
        So there will be money.
        But ... they want to pay off these loans (as always and everything in modern Europe) yes That's right - Germany. That is why the wild dances "make Germany pay Poland for the last war!" .

      Here it is worth recalling their demands for reparations from Germany and Russia, as well as about our finances frozen in the West, to which they also claimed rights, in connection with their active "support for Ukraine"

    30-40 billion zlotys for the defense industry (approximately from 475 to 635 billion rubles

    Damn, when will Mishustin remove two zeros from bills?
    Uncle Joe (not Bidon) established at one time that 1 (one) bucks = 65 kopecks, but why can't this be done now? Return to the so-called historical balance?
    And then even the Polish gilding is more than a dozen.

    America's presses are already red-hot from printing dead presidents on paper. And here also Poland needs to roll something away. Looks like they officially want to climb into the division of Ukraine.

      If Poland becomes a "beloved wife", then a "dowry" in the amount of the territory of Eastern Kresy will be taken away from the ex-wife.

    It turns out that all happiness is in debt, the hope that the United States will forgive the debts of the Poles.

    which should be covered not only from budgetary funds, but also from external sources of financing
    So the budgetary previously included EU injections. Now it is also necessary to find individual "companions" who are ready to fork out for such a noble cause as Poland's defense capability.

    Ah well done!
    Well, you won’t get enough of these guys, and give them that for that too!
    And for a small share, intermediary interest, from 100 or less, they will also roll out the Teutons for desecrated honor, and then they will demand tanks and guns from them.
    Maybe send them more patches, well, so that their muzzles do not burst, otherwise the neighbors to the east have already finished their game.

    Defense spending should also be covered from external sources of funding
    Here, as a well-known character said, "in the queue are the children of the female dog, in the queue." All external sources of financing have long been successfully raked in by the eastern neighbor. Here's a loan, maybe they will. But debts are such a thing that they may be required to repay. laughing Moreover, they take money not for the development of the country, but stupidly for the army, which in fact does not produce anything but only consumes. Well, if the Poles want to fight so badly, the flag is in their hands. Debts to the owners of this money will still have to be paid, only to an already ruined country.

    A typical aunt whose money is taken from the bedside table, and electricity from the outlet. The fate of Poland is sad, apparently its hour will come after Ukraine, suddenly. But they will take it from the West.

    700 Abrams tanks. Chips in the head.
    A country under arms. And then they say the world is on the brink of war. And with what joy did Poles zombies become the center of the world? This ideology has one way to scrap.
