ART-B, using its financial means, has supported the Polish government in the preparation of a safe transport for this operation. The threat of a terrorist attack in the 1990s was serious. All Arab countries were interested in Poland, including Syria. Counterintelligence, anti-terrorist and GROM groups managed to avoid dangerous situations.
