Polish President Duda urges Europe not to ignore threat from Russia

Polish President Andrzej Duda called for solidarity in putting pressure on the Russian Federation to protect the Central-Eastern region of Europe, reports Polish radio.

During a meeting with leaders of the Arraiolos group in Greece, Duda warned the European Union against ignoring the threat from Russia and called for solidarity in the fight against Russian aggression.

"Countries that are located in the immediate reach of Russian ballistic missiles can say a lot about how dangerous Russia is," said Polish President.

Also, Duda stressed the need to support all initiatives to strengthen the security of the Eastern flank of NATO and the European Union.

"In the context of the common security and defense policy, all initiatives that will be synergistic for NATO, and that will serve to maintain and strengthen transatlantic relations, and not to marginalize them, will be supported by us," said Polish President.

At the end of September, Duda and Trump signed a Joint Declaration on Advancing Defense Cooperation. The document provides an increase of the US military presence in Poland to 5.5 thousand soldiers.
