BMI thinks that Poland's current efforts to achieve technical modernisation are likely to depend on the success of economic growth in the wider economy. We expect that Poland's heightened sense of vulnerability to Russia in the wake of the Crimea annexation is likely to shape Poland's restructuring of the armed forces and defence industry for the foreseeable future.

While we think that Poland does not face any immediate threat from Russia's actions in eastern Ukraine, we are wary of how events may turn out on the ground. For us, it seems unlikely that President Putin would want to engage in a military conflict with the entire NATO alliance. In the case that Poland was threatened, it may evoke Article V of the NATO treaty, which refers to collective self-defence. However, we note that Poland's call, backed by the Baltic States, for an extension of...
