Morawiecki: Poland to supply to Ukraine ammunition, MANPADS, drones

Verbal support for Ukraine is no longer enough, so Poland is ready to hand over military aid to Ukraine. In particular, this is about ammunition, Hrim (Thunder) MANPADS, and various types of drones.

This was stated by the head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, who spoke at a briefing for the media in Warsaw on Tuesday morning before flying off to Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Of course, we stand in solidarity with our Ukrainian neighbors in light of the threat they are now facing from Russia. However, solidarity and words are not enough today; now they need to be forged into action. For this and other reasons, which are related to the very threatening military situation, which, unfortunately, has developed there, we are also ready to hand over defensive weapons," Morawiecki said.
