“Polish Armed Forces must count at least 150,000 soldiers. This is a minimum,” announced Poland’s Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz in an interview with Nasz Dziennik.

The Minister mentioned that he hopes to reach this number of soldiers during his tenure, not by the end.

Speaking about the European Union having its own army, Macierewicz said: “I do not see such a perspective.”

According to the official, there are no signs that Western European states are ready to make such far-reaching decision.
