The head of Poland's counterintelligence service has raised concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin's alleged contemplation of a "mini-invasion" of a NATO country, aiming to test the resolve of Western leaders.

According to Jarosław Stróżyk, Putin is reportedly considering the invasion of parts of Estonia and Sweden, possibly targeting the city of Narva in Estonia or landing on one of Sweden's islands, as part of a broader strategy to exert control over the Baltic states.

Both Estonia and Sweden are NATO members, and the alliance has reiterated its commitment to collective defense, promising to come to the aid of any member state under attack, according to the Mirror.

Stróżyk suggested that Putin's ambitions to revive a Russian Empire have been somewhat stalled by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, which has strained Russia's resources.

He noted that Western support for Ukraine has likely made Putin aware of the potential consequences of attacking a NATO member, anticipating a significant response from the West.

In response to growing tensions, NATO leaders have expressed concerns about Russia's escalating aggression and have made preparations for further developments in the Ukrainian conflict.
