Putin stares at ex-Soviet satellite state Poland's big military push | Details
'Putin fear' driving ex-Soviet satellite state Poland's big-ticket defence deals. Shared borders with Kaliningrad (Russian exclave) & Belarus (Russian client state). Russian Baltic Sea fleet HQ in Kaliningrad, the nation's only ice-free European port. Formidable Russian presence in Kaliningrad - nukes, Baltic fleet & 1000s of soldiers. Ukraine invasion is the biggest attack on a European state since World War II. Moscow says the goal is to demilitarize Ukraine & protect Russian-speaking communities. The West has been accusing Moscow of waging an imperial-style war of conquest.
