Poland has offered military aid to Ukraine worth a total of PLN 7 billion (EUR 1.5 billion), Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, has said.
“The heroism of Ukrainians has let them stand up against Russian criminals, but they would be unable to fight back without a huge amount of weaponry, ammunition, adequate anti-aircraft and anti-armour equipment, including heavy equipment,” Morawiecki said at a press conference in Warsaw on Saturday.
“We’re trying to help our neighbours with all of this,” he said.
According to Morawiecki, Poland has sent to Ukraine weapons whose replacement value has reached PLN 7 billion (EUR 1.5 billion) so that “they can defend themselves for us, because that’s where the front line of struggle with the totalitarian Russian regime lies today.”
