After a meeting with Wallace on Thursday, Polish Defense Minister Marius Blaszczyk said Britain had suggested in early October that a company of engineers could support Polish security forces on the Belarusian border. “On November 11, a British intelligence team went to Poland, talked to our soldiers and inspected the border,” Blaszczyk said.
