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.
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.
