Siemoniak said on Thursday that most of the reported incidents involved Russian operations in international waters and airspace. Sweden is the most affected country, according to the Polish minister.

Siemoniak said Warsaw does not see Russia's show of military strength as a preparation for war. Instead, he called it a Russian attempt to test NATO, adding "but it doesn't help to build good relations and trust".
