Following a military putsch in Moscow, an unpredictable dictator comes to power. A few weeks later first shells start falling on Polish cities, and armored columns enter Poland from Kaliningrad and Belarus. Answering the attack, Polish tanks and air cavalry enter into battle. And only a dozen hours later US, German, and British forces begin to arrive at Poland’s western airfields and sea harbors…
This is not a movie thriller script but actual plans to defend Poland against Russian aggression which have been revealed by the Wikileaks portal. The plan to defend Poland, as well as Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia from Russian attack is titled Eagle Guardian. Until recently it was one of the most closely guarded NATO documents. But the world has learned of its existence thanks to Wikileaks’ disclosure of secret correspondence among US diplomats.
What does the NATO plan contain? In the event of attack by aggressors from the East, NATO is to face them with as many of 9 divisions of various kinds. Four of them will be Polish, and the rest are to be swiftly deployed to Poland by the US, Germany, and UK.
–The first divisions to see combat would be Poland’s armored and mechanized divisions, the 11th and the 1st, respectively. Additional divisions will no doubt be formed using airborne and special operations troops, explains General Roman Polko,
Allied units would reach Poland by land and sea through the border with Germany as well as using air and sea transport. In recent times, the Swinoujscie and Gdynia harbors were modified to allow docking by amphibious assault ships and warships. The US supposedly also committed itself to support us with additional F-16 squadrons and C-130 transports capable of transporting paratroopers and light armored vehicles.
Following the release of secret documents, Russia has demanded an explanation.
–We need to establish whether NATO is indeed making such plans in secrecy, thundered Leonid Slutskiy of the State Duma International Affairs Committee.
