Polish President Andrzej Duda and Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg held urgent consultations on Monday in connection with Russia's mass shelling of several Ukrainian cities.
The talks mainly focused on the attacks carried out on Monday and further supplies of defensive equipment to Ukraine, which has been fighting off a Russian invasion since February 24.
The attacks were launched on Monday morning, with rocket missiles hitting civilian infrastructure in several Ukrainian cities, including the capital city of Kyiv and Zaporizhzhia.
According to initial reports 8 people were killed and 24 injured in the attacks on Kyiv, with at least 11 deaths and 64 casualties reported countrywide.
After the Duda-Stoltenberg talks, Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Twitter that he and the Polish president planned to work together to secure more international aid for Ukraine.
Stoltenberg tweeted his appreciation to Poland for its "key contributions" in aiding Ukraine. "Russia continues its unprovoked aggression against an independent sovereign nation. We will stay the course," the Nato Secretary General wrote.
