After Word War I both Germany and Russia did not accept the Versailes Treaty and were looking towards changing it. Both countries were trying to rebuild their respective armies, which were supposed to be used in a war against Poland. The intelligence reconnaissance played a big part in this situation. The Soviet Unions political activity rose in the1920s. It was accompanied by espionage and diversification techniques used against Poland. The II SG branch as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs groups took appropriate actions. Both were trying to consolidate actions in order to keeping Poland safe. The army intelligence especially looked for changes in the Soviet’s army potential. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was interested in changes in foreign countries politics, as well as keeping the country safe thanks to various diplomatic opportunities. The II SG branch and the Ministries efforts intertwined, which helped in verifying gathered information. Low budget limited however the groups efforts. The command of the II SG branch tried to maintain proper affairs with the Ministry and softened all conflicts. The highest powers of the II RP were not always considering the army intelligence actions.
