Poland and Ukraine sign document on support in security and defence
Poland and Ukraine have signed an “important” letter on security and defence, the Ukrainian prime minister has said.
Denys Shmyhal said that he had put his signature on the document on Thursday along with that of his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki.
Shmyhal also said that it was an important step leading to the transfer of special technology and support in the field of Ukrainian security and defence.
The Ukrainian prime minister, who attended online the High-Level International Donors' Conference for Ukraine, held at the National Stadium in the Polish capital on Thursday, said that Poland was a country that had been "actively supporting Ukraine since the first day of Russia's invasion."
Referring to Ukrainian-Polish relations, Shmyhal told reporters that they had entered a completely new phase since the beginning of Russia's war against Ukraine.
He added that the war had shown who was Ukraine's friend and brother, and who was not, and said that Poland had been offering Ukraine unprecedented assistance.
The prime minister said that, as far as military assistance was concerned, Poland was the second most important Ukrainian partner after the US.
According to Shmyhal, Polish-Ukrainian brotherhood will continue for many decades to come.
