Poland’s military counterintelligence service has initiated a probe into Eurocorps Commander Gen. Jaroslaw Gromadzinski, resulting in his dismissal from the position, Polish Defense Ministry said on March 27.

Gromadzinski is also required to return immediately to Poland from Strasbourg, where the Eurocorps HQ is located. Eurocorps is a multinational rapid reaction force command, whose forces can be deployed in operations under the auspices of the EU, NATO, and the UN.
