The representative of the Polish Ministry of National Defense, Colonel Michal Marchiniak, said that Poland does not intend to take part in the creation of a pan-European air defense system Sky Shield, since this would set the country back several years in terms of the armed forces.

Marciniak stressed that Poland’s air defense is much more effective and stronger than those available to the countries participating in the initiative.

“Participation in this initiative from the point of view of the armed forces would set us back several years,” he quotes RIA News.

Marchiniak, among other things, explained this by the fact that this initiative is being carried out without authorization from NATO.

In October, at the initiative of Germany, 15 European countries signed a protocol of intent to create a pan-European air defense system.
