الولايات المتحدة توسع وجودها العسكري في بولندا

Graphic News

June 10, 2019 -- The United States will likely move forward with plans to expand its military presence in Poland, which could include more than 1,000 new troops and the permanent stationing of forces in the country.

The U.S. and Poland are reportedly coming closer to agreeing a deal to boost the number of non-permanent American troops in the country by between 1,000 and 1,500. There are on average about 4,500 U.S. troops in Poland on rotation as part of NATO forces, according to Reuters.

Instead of constructing a single large military base, Washington has proposed dispersing U.S. troops across various existing bases in Poland.

Any build-up of American forces will likely trigger a response from Russia, which could boost its defence assets near Poland’s borders.

One potential site for Russia to bolster its presence would be Belarus, which is already one of Moscow's key defence partners. Other nearby areas include Kaliningrad, Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
