Poland is afraid of Russia – level 1

13-02-2024 15:00

Poland, Germany, and the Netherlands make a deal. They help each other move soldiers quickly in Europe.

They do this because Russia worries Poland. The deal helps Ukraine and NATO. Poland says that moving soldiers fast is very important. It is because of the war in Ukraine. The Dutch Ambassador thinks this is very important for big challenges. Nobody knows what can happen in the future.

The deal helps Poland. The country needs to be safe. It needs to be strong in the EU after a change in the government.

Difficult words: soldier (a person who fights in a war), ambassador (an official who represents a country in another country), government (a group of people who lead a country).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What reasons do Poland, Germany, and the Netherlands have for making this deal? How does it benefit both Poland and its neighboring countries?
