D. Dziwisz - The new strategy of U.S. activities in cyberspace – potential consequences of the „defend forward”

17.03.2020
In an interview with 13ABC television, Donald Trump said that the USA is “better at cyber than anybody else in the world", but until now they were not really using that power. He also announced that if the USA were attacked, the answer would be very painful. This and other similar statements by the American president are in line with the new vision of the United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) of 2018 and the Pentagon’s “strategy of persistent engagement” which is supported by the “defend forward” operational concept.

A. Tyszkiewicz - France is poised to reinforce its military presence in Sahel

12.03.2020
President Macron's decision on the reinforcement of the French military presence in Sahel focused on deploying a unit of 220 soldiers in support of the anti-terrorist, multi-national operation "Barkhane". It replaced the operation "Serval" provoked in 2013 by a series of centrifugal activities by the Tuareg, channeling their efforts to a secession from the Malian state, and Islamic fundamentalist organizations such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. As a leader of the stabilization process in the Sahel and the Lake Chad Region, widely known as Western Africa, France aims reinforcing local efforts taken mainly by the G5 Sahel countries, as well as by the UN and the UE.

M. Czajkowski - The Syrian-Turkish Conflictand its Implications for Russia

17.02.2020
The Syrian government’s offensive against the last important rebel stronghold in the Idlib province has resulted in skirmishes between the Turkish Armed Forces (Türk Silahlı Kuvvetleri – TSK) present in the area and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with its affiliated forces. The situation on the ground is still in development, but we believe that it may contribute to important changes in the landscape of the Syrian war, which most probably is drawing to the end of its current phase. We may also be witnessing a pivotal point of the Russian intervention in Syria. This commentary is intendedto briefly assess the current events and present some possible future scenarios of the conflict, with special attention to the role of Russia.

A. Nyzio - On the fusion of special services

22.01.2020
The post-election period in the Polish internal security apparatus was marked by the Marian Banaś affair. This case once again illustrated how leaky, or entirely absent, security procedures are, and that the coordination of specialized institutions remains seriously flawed. The weakness of intelligence services prompted a further discussion concerning the necessity of reform. Some sort of merger is one of the options under consideration.

D. Kozerawski - The armaments programs of the Russian Federation – In the context of modernization plans for the land forces

08.01.2020
The Russian Federation's security policy and the related strengthening of its international position include among the most important factors the military potential of the state. Modern armed forces are a necessary tool for their effective conduct. In order to ensure the high efficiency of the army, the Russian Federation has been gradually increasing financial expenditures on development, production and supply of weapons under different state defense programs (SDP).
