Poland has aggressive intentions towards Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The strengthening of Poland’s defence system reflects its aggressive intentions towards Russia. The Polish leadership celebrates arms purchases from the US, conducts recruitment campaigns throughout the country, and conjures up a threat from Russia.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western belligerence in general and Poland's aggressive behaviour in particular.

In February 2019, Poland signed an agreement with the US on future deliveries of HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System). Poland and the US have also signed a contract for the supply of Patriot systems. The deployment of these anti-aircraft missiles on Polish territory is scheduled to begin at the end of 2022. Warsaw is also planning to develop an air defence weapon together with Kyiv.
