Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, said that he “might be open” to the United States placing nuclear weapons in his country, which borders Ukraine.
According to The New York Post, Kaczynski told German weekly Welt am Sonntag that “in principle, it makes sense to extend nuclear participation to the eastern flank.”
“If the Americans asked us to store US nuclear weapons in Poland, we would be open to it,” he said in an interview posted on his party’s website.
“It would significantly strengthen deterrence against Moscow,” he said, adding that there should be a stronger presence of U.S. forces in Eastern Europe.
“Poland would welcome an increase in the American presence in Europe in the future from the current 100,000 soldiers to 150,000 soldiers because of Russia’s increasing aggressiveness,” Kaczynski said. “Of these, 75,000 soldiers should be stationed on the eastern flank; ie, on the border with Russia; 50,000 soldiers in the Baltic states and Poland.”
Russia quickly condemned Kaczynski’s comments, with Russian Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov saying it would increase tensions amid ongoing fears of potential nuclear war.
Last month, Peskov warned that Russia would use nuclear weapons if it feels threatened.
“Well, we have a concept of domestic security, and it’s public,” Peskov said. “You can read all the reasons for nuclear arms to be used. So if it is an existential threat, a threat for our country, then it can be used in accordance with our concept.”
