Tomash Hypki, in turn, has informed that the decision to place base anti-missiles all in 5 km from the city of Slupska where live nearby 100 thousand people, is erroneous
There were Soviet installations in and around Wroclaw, Szczecin and Zielona Gora. The combined population of these areas was roughly 1 million. I wonder if Mr Hypki made comments about it then.
When Poland was a slave member of the Warsaw Pact, which was supposedly to its benefit, the Pact's plan to defend itself from any possible attack by NATO was to nuke Poland on the Vistula line. This would have contaminated the soil, water and air with nuclear pollution, killing some 10 to 15 million Poles in the process. That's how safe Poland was without US missiles in Poland.
"Anywhere in the world objects of such type have no near to settlements. Americans have placed them with themselves on Alaska and in desert", — has emphasized Hypki.
Europe is not anywhere in the world. Population density is simply higher than in Alaska.
