Belarus Threatens to Attack Poland in Case of "Provocations by the West"
Thursday, 7 July 2022
Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Belarus, Ruslan Kosygin, said Belarusian forces will strike primarily at Poland's infrastructure.
"The territory of Poland, as well as the Baltic countries, is turning into a polygon, where the USA plans to unleash another bloody conflict in Europe against the Russian Federation and its allies," BELTA quotes Kosygin.
He pointed to military exercises, as well as "attempts by individual Polish politicians to initiate the return of the so-called Polish ancestral lands, which means the western regions of Ukraine and Belarus."
Kosygin called that "preparation for conducting military operations in the eastern direction" on the background of "Western Europe degradation and their actual loss of independent decision-making."
"The Polish leadership must understand in the first place. - The territory of Poland with its military infrastructure becomes the primary target of an attack in the event of a conflict, namely decision-making centers, elements of the management system, points of permanent deployment of the national armed forces, arsenals and bases, and as well as critically important objects of their economy and transport infrastructure," Kosygin said.
He concluded that "the West must clearly understand that our response to any armed provocations will definitely be adequate and tough."
