"Let's remember that Ukraine protects Europe from Russia. On the one hand, this is the time for Ukraine to order equipment from us, wherever possible, for the long term. On the other hand, this equipment is needed here and now, otherwise Russia will go much further in its military actions," Müller emphasized.

As reported, Chairman of the Board of the Polish Arms Group PGZ, Sebastian Chwałek, said that Rosomak APCs would be supplied to Ukraine in various modifications, depending on the order. Therefore, the final configuration of this APC will be the subject of detailed negotiations. He is also convinced that the Finnish side, which owns the license to manufacture the Rosomak APC, will agree to its sale to Ukraine.
