Skip to comments.Poland and Baltics feel heat from Crimea

Russia's move into part of Ukraine has caused genuine unease in neighbouring countries like Poland and the three Baltic states and a sense that they also are under threat.
Poland's leaders have played down the danger, repeatedly reassuring the public.
During an event to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Poland joining Nato on Monday, Prime Minister Donald Tusk said he saw no direct threat to his country, a view echoed by Poland's President Bronislaw Komorowski.
But there is a widespread sense of insecurity in Poland. In an opinion poll last week, 59% of respondents believed Russia's foreign policy presented a threat to Poland's security.

If there’s gun control in any of these nations, it’s about time they un-control, and institute their version of our 2nd Amendment real soon-they may need to use it, even more than us I am afraid!
“In an opinion poll last week, 59% of respondents believed Russia’s foreign policy presented a threat to Poland’s security.”
tupid Poles. Putin’s Russia is not interested in them.
You Are A dumbass. Why not explain your statement?
Don’t worry my fellow Poles. Obama is on the golf course with his phone. He will be very concerned when the coast lines of the Baltics down to Gadnsk are occupied by Russian soldiers.
wow, good thing we didn’t elect Romney...
Russia has nothing to gain from Poland, who is now the NATO puppet.
BTW, Poland is dependent on Russia for 70% of its energy needs. Of course, they could stop buying fuel and freeze to death, it’s their absolute right.
Then, by “Bartertown” standards, Europe is basically screwed? And it was OK for Obama to quash the middle shield with them?
You seem to have a problem with NATO. Your syntax sounds Russian.
Do you have an ethnic BIAS you'd like to elaborate upon?
Give them their SDI missile shields NOW!
If the US (a.k.a. NATO) want to play war games in Poland, in order to impress Russia, they will be badly disappointed.
Russia is not to be bullied like Libya, Yemen or Kosovo were.
What the hell do the US want? A nuclear war in Europe? Just take your flying toys home and reinstate the Monroe doctrine. Each in his own backyard. NATO is a Cold War instrument, which has no more reason to exist.
And last, but not least, kill Soros!
Poland, Lithuania, Japan, South Korea - you should all be looking over your shoulders. :)
Doesn’t sound like you like poles very much.
We got a cat in here. The meowing is deafening.
You hate Poland.
or is it hissing? heh
I don’t give a flying f..k about Poland, Ukraine and all that. The West should do the same.
We’ve known that Bear geopolitics is truculent.
There was an era when Russia headed a huge empire. Did this make them happy?
Modern commerce has, at least, gotten them to simmer down some. Being a major oil power helps.
Poland hates you too, and is mobilizing for war with you.
