Russia ‘simulates’ nuclear attack on Poland

By | November 6, 2009

Russian tanks in GeorgiaRussia has provoked outrage in Poland by simulating an air and sea attack on the country during military exercises.

The armed forces are said to have carried out “war games” in which nuclear missiles were fired and troops practised an amphibious landing on the country’s coast.

Documents obtained by Wprost, one of Poland’s leading news magazines, said the exercise was carried out in conjunction with soldiers from Belarus.

The manoeuvres are thought to have been held in September and involved about 13,000 Russian and Belarusian troops.

Poland, which has strained relations with both countries, was cast as the “potential aggressor”.

The documents state the exercises, code-named “West”, were officially classified as “defensive” but many of the operations appeared to have an offensive nature.

The Russian air force practised using weapons from its nuclear arsenal, while in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which neighbours Poland, Red Army forces stormed a “Polish” beach and attacked a gas pipeline.

The operation also involved the simulated suppression of an uprising by a national minority in Belarus – the country has a significant Polish population which has a strained relationship with authoritarian government of Belarus.

Karol Karski, an MP from Poland’s Law and Justice, is to table parliamentary questions on Russia’s war games and has protested to the European Commission.

His colleague, Marek Opiola MP, said: “It’s an attempt to put us in our place. Don’t forget all this happened on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland.”

Ordinary Poles were outraged by news of the exercise and demanded a firm response fro the government.

One man, identified only as Ted, told Polskie Radio: “Russia has laid bare its real intentions with respect to Poland.

    This is equal of the pernicious effects of affirmative action. In our PC/affirmative action culture, we verge to discern the achievements and promotions of minorities as a consequence of affirmative strength policies instead of solitary diligence and talent. This undermines these vastly achievements.
    Another problem here is that it sets kind-hearted morality at odds with the higher heavenly morality. If the higher morality is common to judge the Mass murder, necessary virus outbreaks, etc, as good, while forgiving morality wishes adjudicator them immoral, then the ‘fair’ in each of these moralities are different. Elevated on the higher habits is not what we mean nearby good.

    Kid labor and pauperism are inevitably obliged together and if you endure to use the labor of children as the treatment for the group disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time.

    Child labor and pauperism are inevitably obliged together and if you remain to use the labor of children as the treatment for the collective disability of pauperism, you will have both destitution and youth labor to the close of time.
