Poland no longer arming Ukraine: Polish PM

Warsaw has been one of Kyiv's staunchest supporters

21 September, 09:32

(ANSA-AFP) - WARSAW, SEP 21 - Poland will no longer arm Ukraine to focus on its own defence, the Polish prime minister said on Wednesday, a few hours after Warsaw summoned Kyiv's ambassador amid a row over grain exports. "We are no longer transferring weapons to Ukraine, because we are now arming Poland with more modern weapons," Mateusz Morawiecki said, in response to a question from a reporter on whether Warsaw would continue to support Kyiv despite the grain exports disagreement.
    Poland has been one of Ukraine's staunchest supporters after Russia invaded in February 2022 and is one of Kyiv's main weapons suppliers. It also hosts some one million Ukrainian refugees, who have benefited from various kinds of state aid.
    Tensions between Warsaw and Kyiv, sparked by Poland's ban on Ukrainian grain imports to protect the interests of its farmers, have intensified in recent days. (ANSA-AFP).
