Jerzy Gut
Polish army suffered yet another high-profile departure after general Jerzy Gut, head of the special forces, tendered his resignation citing personal reasons, the daily Gazeta Wyborcza reported.

Poland currently "has no general capable of coordinating the operations of NATO special forces," one of former army commanders told the daily, referring to the departure of Gut and other officers.

Some 30 generals have recently resigned from Poland's armed forces — part of NATO — since the conservative government of Law and Justice (PiS) came to power in October, 2015.

The individual cited by Gazeta Wyborcza that Poland has started "gradually withdrawing from NATO structures."

Gut's resignation may have been caused by the autumn 2016 changes in the leadership in special services unit Grom which were conducted without consulting Gut, according to the daily.
