Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced the allocation of 10 billion zlotys ($2.5 billion) for the Eastern Shield project. This initiative is aimed at strengthening the Polish border with Russia and Belarus.

Tusk made this statement at a ceremony marking the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino on Saturday, May 18. This was reported by the Polish portal RMF24.

"We have decided to invest 10 billion zlotys in our security and, above all, in a secure eastern border. We are launching a huge project to build a secure border, including a system of fortifications, as well as landscape and environmental solutions that will make this border impassable for a potential enemy," Tusk said.

The Polish Prime Minister also noted that in recent weeks the country has been facing provocations and sabotage. He promised to inform the public about the measures taken by the Polish state against those who commit them next week.

"We are counteracting, detaining, and arresting those who are trying to attack our homeland, Poland, here on our land. The Polish state will be absolutely merciless to them," Tusk added.

As a reminder, Poland's Deputy Defense Minister Cezary Tomczyk said that his country will carry out a significant modernization of fortifications. The defense ministry representative emphasized that Poland is ready to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on these measures.

Poland has begun construction of fortifications on the border with Belarus. According to Prime Minister Donald Tusk, this decision was made due to pressure from the regime of dictator Alexander Lukashenko. He also added that Poland decided to strengthen its borders due to the growing threat posed by Russia's aggression against Ukraine and the uncertain geopolitical situation.

Earlier, the State Security Committee of Belarus said that Poland was allegedly preparing for "terrorist attacks and seizure of facilities" in Belarus. The Belarusian media claimed that the KGB knew the names of the curators, who were employees of the Polish special services.
