MOD dementi

Training fields and excellence centers are located throughout Poland hence some subunits movements may be observed. Therefore it is effect of routine dislocation to the training points. Number of trainings as well as their location are not linked to the current, political and military situation in Ukraine. At the moment there is no need and reasons to introduce a heightened state of combat readiness in Polish Armed Forces. Ministry of Defnece appeals to the media not to disseminate unproved information without authorized commentaries about increased activities of Polish troops as it causes the society misinformation and drives to unnecessary concerns among citizens.
