Summary/Abstract: Toward the end of 2007, Poland’s political and military geostrategic situation was somewhat less favorable than it had been the previous year. Although it is true that the risk of an armed conflict in Europe was negligible and that threats related to terrorism (in Poland or in neighboring countries), to the activities of non-state entities (such as organized crime) or trans-national threats (uncontrolled mass migrations, epidemics) were not much greater, Russia’s policy toward its neighbors (including Poland) as well as some other Western countries was becoming increasingly confrontational.
