Dmitry Medvedev who is deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, has suggested that in addition to Russia’s goal of winning the “special military operation” in Ukraine, that Russia may find it necessary “to push back the borders that threaten our country as far as possible, even if they are the borders of Poland.”  Medvedev, who is considered a likely successor to Russian President Vladimir Putin, made the remarks on the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  U.S. President Joe Biden recently vowed in Warsaw to defend “every inch” of NATO territory.  Poland joined NATO in 1999.
