    General Gromadziński Dismissed as Eurocorps Commander

    General Jarosław Gromadziński has been abruptly removed from his position as the commander of the Eurocorps. The decision, shrouded in unclear circumstances, has prompted former Minister of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak to criticize both the manner of dismissal and the Ministry of National Defense’s (MON) handling of the situation, suggesting that it brings shame upon Poland within the international military community.

    “The way in which General Gromadziński was dismissed, leaving a wide field for speculation, and the communication of this matter by the Ministry of National Defense bring disgrace to Poland in the military international environment,” commented former defense minister Mariusz Błaszczak.

    The return of personnel associated with previous administrations, coupled with the initiation of a disciplinary investigation against General Gromadziński and his subsequent dismissal, has raised eyebrows. Critics argue that the process lacks transparency and professionalism.

    Former Minister of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak emphasized the importance of clarity in such significant decisions, particularly concerning Poland’s credibility with its allies. “If there are serious allegations against General Gromadziński, the public opinion should be informed of the details,” he stated, highlighting the necessity for transparency in maintaining Poland’s reputation on the international stage.

    Moreover, Błaszczak accused Minister Kosiniak-Kamysz of relinquishing control of the ministry to what he described as “neoSKW” and retired generals, particularly alarming given the ongoing conflict beyond Poland’s eastern border.

    The sudden removal of General Gromadziński, a figure within the Eurocorps, has raised concerns not only about the circumstances of his dismissal but also about the broader implications for Poland’s military leadership and its relationships with international partners.
