On June 29th, General Jarosław Gromadziński will assume the position of the Commander of Eurocorps, announced the Polish Defense Ministry. Brig. General Adam Rzeczkowski also received a nomination for the position of Eurocorps’ deputy chief of staff.

Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak presented the appointments to the new positions, according to an announcement from the Ministry of National Defense on Wednesday.

Jarosław Gromadziński, who recently became a three-star general, has previously overseen the training of Ukrainian troops in Germany together with senior U.S. officers.

Eurocorps is a European military rapid reaction force available to the European Union and NATO, established in 1992 by Germany and France. The command of Eurocorps is rotated every two years and is currently led by Lt. General Peter Devogelaere from Belgium.

Alongside Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Spain, Poland is one of the framework nations that co-owns, directs, manages, finances and provides personnel to the Eurocorps.

Associated countries that mainly support the structure with military personnel are Austria, Greece, Italy, Romania and Turkey. Eurocorps has existed for 30 years and is highly respected for its military capabilities and performance in international operations.
