Convoy with ammunition from Poland reaches Ukraine
A convoy with ammunition from Poland has arrived in Ukraine, the Polish minister of defense has announced.
Mariusz Błaszczak wrote on Twitter on Friday that "Poland supports and is in solidarity with the Ukrainian people," as he announced that a convoy with ammunition had reached that country.
"Poland firmly opposes the Russian aggression," he added.
The defense minister said that, in early February, the government had adopted a resolution on aid to Ukraine. "We will provide the most state-of-the-art Polish equipment - Polish Man-Portable Air Defense Missiles (MANPADS) - as well as ammunition," Błaszczak said.
Russia, on Thursday, launched an attack on cities and military installations across Ukraine, forcing thousands of civilians to flee the country.
