(From L), Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, Head of National Security Office Stanislaw Koziej, Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz and Polish Defence Minister Tomasz Siemoniak attend a meeting on April 21, 2015 in WarsawPoland said Tuesday it will hold exclusive talks with the US government on a multi-billion-euro Patriot missile contract and test Airbus helicopters in an unprecedented military upgrade amid heightened tensions with neighbouring Russia. President Bronislaw Komorowski said the decision for the massive defence revamp is being made at a time of “deterioration of security due to the Russian-Ukraine conflict”. The Eurosam consortium including MBDA France, MBDA Italy and France’s Thales Group had been the other party in the running for the deal valued at an estimated 5 billion euros ($5.4 billion). Poland’s defence ministry said it wanted to acquire eight missile batteries by 2025, with two of them to be delivered within three years of signing a deal.
