This was announced by the Minister of Defense of Poland, Mariusz Błaszczak, who on the eve took part in the military oath of soldiers of voluntary military service and the Territorial Defense Forces.
The head of the defense department noted that Poland plans to organize new military units to replace those that were liquidated by 2015. In addition, the Polish Army has already begun to receive new equipment.
