Polish general leading Eurocorps fired and under investigation for spying

Poland’s Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that Lieutenant General Jarosław Gromadziski, head of the Eurocorps, had been dismissed and an investigation for alleged espionage was being launched. The Military Counterintelligence Service initiated an inspection procedure of the lieutenant general to gather information about him, leading to the decision to remove him from his position and return him to Poland.

Gromadziski was highly trusted by Warsaw and had overseen the formation of the 18th Mechanized Division of the Army in 2018, which is considered a model unit equipped with top military equipment. He received his third star last year and continued in his position under the new government. Additionally, he was involved in training Ukrainian fighters at German bases alongside US commanders at the Wiesbaden base.

The Eurocorps headquarters is based in Strasbourg and Poland became one of its Framework Nations in January 2022, joining France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Spain. The Eurocorps is a multinational military force deployed on humanitarian, rescue, and peacekeeping missions by organizations such as the European Union, NATO, and the United Nations. Leadership rotates among member countries.
