    Report suggests it’s premature to make changes to army command regarding Bydgoszcz ‘object’

    The National Security Bureau (BBN) of Poland has released a statement regarding the report on a mysterious military object discovered in a forest near Bydgoszcz, stating that it does not justify any changes in the command of the Polish Army. The report, which is now in the hands of the President, does not recommend any personnel changes in connection with the incident.

    The origins of the object remain unclear, although it is suspected to be a Russian cruise missile that may have strayed off course during a launch meant to confuse Ukrainian air defences. However, the BBN statement makes no mention of any foreign involvement in the incident.

    The statement also reveals that the President has not received any motions regarding the incident, suggesting that no disciplinary actions have been recommended. Instead, the BBN is focused on fully understanding the incident before making any decisions.

    President Duda was informed of the incident on April 26th while on a visit to Mongolia. He immediately ordered the BBN to gather all the facts from relevant institutions and keep him informed.

    Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak, on the other hand, revealed that the Operational Commander failed to inform him of the unidentified object entering Polish airspace. He stated that any decisions regarding disciplinary actions would be taken after consulting with the President.
