    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

    National security is always a priority for any country, especially in times of dynamic geopolitical changes and potential threats. In recent days, the world has watched the events in Russia with concern, but the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, has stressed that Poland is not directly threatened by these events. In response to concerns and the need to coordinate security efforts, the President convened a meeting at the National Security Office.

    The meeting brought together the most important political figures and high-ranking officials in the state, including Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński, Minister of Internal Affairs Mariusz Błaszczak, Minister of Foreign Affairs Zbigniew Rau, Minister of Justice Mariusz Kamiński, Head of the BBN Jacek Siewiera, Head of the BPM Marcin Przydacz and representatives of the General Staff of the Polish Army, the Intelligence Agency, the Internal Security Agency, the Military Intelligence Service and the Military Counterintelligence Service.

    After the briefing, President Andrzej Duda reassured the public by informing them that the situation in Russia does not directly affect Poland’s security. He expressed confidence that the Polish services are monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis and maintaining vigilance. In this context, the President stressed that there is no heightened threat to Poland.

    This is an important statement that reassures the public and at the same time emphasises Poland’s readiness to defend its territory and interests. The decision to maintain constant vigilance of the armed forces in Poland is in line with the principle of prudence and responsibility in terms of national security. The heads of ministries, the General Staff and the special services have provided information on the current situation and threats, which allows appropriate preventive measures to be taken.

    It is worth noting that President Duda also stressed the importance of cooperation and consultation with allies. International cooperation in the field of security is extremely important in the face of possible threats. Poland has allies who are ready to cooperate and provide support in case of crisis situations. Therefore, also holding consultations at the level of state and allied authorities is a step in the right direction.

    The current security situation is worrying, but Poles can rest assured knowing that the state authorities are fully engaged in monitoring the situation and ensuring the safety of citizens. Cooperation between different services and institutions is crucial for effective action in the event of a possible threat. Knowledge, coordination and adequate resources are the foundation of national security.

    In the face of today’s challenges posed by dynamic changes in the international arena, Poland must remain vigilant and ready to act. National security is a common goal that requires cooperation, understanding and determination. Therefore, the convened meeting at the National Security Office is an important step towards ensuring security and stability for Poland and its citizens.
