The Polish government will organize a series of military exercises dubbed Country 2015 aimed at testing the country's "resilience for a new type of crisis seen East of Polish borders," President Bronislaw Komorowski said on Wednesday during an annual meeting of Poland's top military leadership.

The meeting, which examines Poland's defense potential and outlines key security tasks focused on tasks for the Polish army at a time of armed conflict between Poland’s eastern neighbors Ukraine and Russia.

Poland must raise its defense potential and intensify the modernization of its military preparedness in the face of threats, President Komorowski said.

While Poland has been well serviced to increase defense spending to 2% of GDP, increasing nominal spending from PLN 15 billion in 2001 to PLN 32 billion today, Russia has since put military spending to 4% of GDP.

Following the move by Russia to resign from the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), the Polish government has decided to speed up the conclusion of the tender for anti-missile shield from end-year to a new April target.
