To avoid war with Russia, countries on NATO's eastern flank should adopt a 3-year timeline to prepare for confrontation, Jacek Siewiera, a minister in the Office of the President of Poland and head of the National Security Bureau, said in an interview with "Nasz Dziennik".
He was asked whether the threat of a Russian attack on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is real, as predicted in a report by the German Council on Foreign Relations, so Western countries have 5-9 years to prepare to repel it.
"Unfortunately, yes. This analysis is consistent with the studies prepared in the United States. However, in my opinion, the time frames presented by German analysts are too optimistic. If we want to avoid war, then NATO countries on the eastern flank should adopt a shorter, 3-year timeline to prepare for confrontation. This is the time when a potential must be created on the eastern flank that will be a clear deterrent to aggression," the head of the BBN, emphasized.
