Slovak news servers informed that the bilateral Slovak-Polish project on establishing an expert centre for counterintelligence in Poland is likely over because NATO leaders do not trust the Polish government. Eight countries initially participated in the project, including the Czech Republic, Germany and France. An alternative is currently being started in Finland.

The expert centre for counterintelligence was supposed to train specialists to fight new kinds of threats coming from the East, which is why Slovakia invested considerable means into preparations of the facility in Lešť. Slovakia's disappointment with the situation its partner was set aside as an alternative project is already underway in Finland. Both Slovakia and Poland continued to have a NATO Force Integration Unit (NFIU) on their territory. NFIUs came into existence after the Russian annexation of Crimea and their main objective is security and coordination of the deployment of Alliance's forces in the region. There are eight such centres in Europe, all in the areas near the eastern borders of the Alliance amid the fear of Russian aggression.
