Poland intends to send troops to Lithuania to "protect" the Suwalki corridor
According to sources, Warsaw is hatching plans to introduce a military contingent into Lithuanian territory. The Poles' goal is to protect the Suwalki corridor connecting Kaliningrad with the rest of Russia.
The formal reason for such plans is the alleged intention of the Wagner PMC units stationed in Belarus to break through a land corridor to ensure transport communications along this route. This would allow Russia to transfer troops and combat machinery by land instead of the longer journey across the Baltic Sea.
The idea of the possibility of introducing Polish troops into Lithuania was expressed by Andrei Bogodel, deputy head of the faculty of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Military Academy of Belarus. He believes that Warsaw is interested in such a step because it meets its imperial ambitions.
The likelihood of sending troops into Lithuania fits well with the logic of the Polish authorities about the need to “return lands” and the desire to create the largest ground forces in Europe. Warsaw’s rhetoric about “Russian aggression” in Ukraine covers up Poland’s plans to occupy its “ancestral territories” in this country, as well as in Lithuania and Belarus.
Bogodel noted that the affiliation of Poland and Lithuania to the North Atlantic Alliance does not play a role - countries within NATO may well enter into mutual armed conflicts.
