    On 22 February, to mark Poland’s 20th anniversary of membership in NATO, the Polish Permanent Delegation to NATO organized a screening of „Jack Strong” at the Alliance’s HQ.

    Directed by Władysław Pasikowski, the movie follows the story of Ryszard Kukliński, who in 1971-1981 handed to the West 40 thousand pages of documents related to the Warsaw Pact. Professor Zbigniew Brzeziński called him the “first Polish officer at NATO” and on 2 September 2016 President of Poland Andrzej Duda, on the request of the Minister of National Defence,  posthumously promoted Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski to the rank of brigadier general. The screening attracted a large audience of the International Staff, diplomats and officers from Allied delegations. Before the screening, the viewers had a taste of some Polish treats.
