No information has been received on type, scale, duration and area of the 1958 Polish fall exercises. The abovementioned press report is worth noting, however. Previous reports indt -ted that the USSR had no intention of e i tellites with atomic weapons. The Soviet and Satellite press constantly criticize the equipn+.ent with atomic weapons and training under atomic wartime conditions of the West German Bundeswehr while, on the other hand, Polish military personnel has been trained on behaviour at the battlefield in case of atomic warfare for a prolonged period.
