Poland reveals challenges in donating new aid packages to Ukraine

Hungary is blocking the provision of EUR 450 million in compensation from the European budget to Poland for weapons previously donated to Ukraine. Therefore, this makes it difficult for Warsaw to transfer more packages of military aid to Kyiv.

Radoslaw Sikorski, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated this on TVN24, Ukrinform reports.

"Hungary is blocking EUR 450 million, which Poland should receive from the European budget for weapons supplied to Ukraine. This makes it difficult for us to send further aid packages to Ukraine," said Sikorski.

As reported, in March, Sikorski said Poland was preparing the 45th aid package for Ukraine, while the previous two were worth a total of $100 million.
