Polish general in charge of Eurocorps removed and probed for spying

The Polish Ministry of Defense has announced the dismissal of General Jarosaw Gromadziski from his position as head of the Eurocorps, due to an investigation for alleged espionage. The Military Counterintelligence Service initiated a procedure to gather information about the officer, which led to his removal from the Eurocorps and return to Poland.

General Gromadziski had previously been trusted by Warsaw, overseeing the formation of the 18th Mechanized Division of the Army in 2018 and training Ukrainian fighters at German bases. He received his third star last year and continued in his role with the new government. His assignment to the Eurocorps headquarters in Strasbourg occurred about nine months ago.

The Eurocorps is a multinational military force involved in humanitarian, rescue, and peacekeeping missions, led by rotating commanders appointed by member countries such as Poland, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Spain. Poland officially joined the Eurocorps as a Framework Nation in January 2022.

The dismissal and investigation for alleged espionage have raised concerns and questions about General Gromadziski’s activities and potential security breaches within the Eurocorps. The outcome of the investigation and any further developments regarding this case will be closely monitored by defense authorities and international organizations overseeing the Eurocorps’ operations.
