Yet another convoy carrying ammunition has reached Ukraine, the Polish Ministry of National Defence has said.

In early February, Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said Poland would supply Ukraine with ammunition and hand-held anti-aircraft launchers Piorun (Lightning). Other items transferred to Ukraine included helmets and bulletproof vests.

"Yet another of our convoys, this time with ammunition, has reached Ukraine," Marcin Ociepa, a deputy defence minister, wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning.

The head of the presidential National Security Bureau, Paweł Soloch confirmed on Saturday that Poland would continue sending ammunition to Ukraine.

A large number of other Western countries have also pledged to help Ukraine with weapons. The country is defending itself against overwhelming Russian forces which invaded the country from the north, east and south on Thursday.
