Residents in the northeastern regions of Poland have begun to experience certain difficulties due to the proximity of Russian and Belarusian military units, as stated in a publication of Belarus Partisan.
Military communications used by the security forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus emit powerful signals. As a result, Polish cellular signals in the interference zone are suppressed, Rzeczpospolita asserts. In order to use their cellular phones, Poles are forced to buy sim cards from Russian telecom operators and connect to roaming, or use payphones, the number of which has decreased significantly.
Poles residing within 30 – 40 kilometers from the Russian border suffer the most in this respect. The Polish Law and Justice political party has been trying to solve this problem for quite a long time, though all in vain, the edition notes.
