Poland ignores Russia threat, sends T-72 tanks, Thunderbolt, drones, rockets to Ukraine
Despite earlier warnings from Russia, Poland has sent reinforcements to Ukraine.
Poland has supplied its neighbours with equipment, such as dozens of infantry fighting vehicles and the 2S1 Carnation self-propelled howitzers, drones, Grad multiple rocket launchers and Piorun (Thunderbolt) man-portable air defense systems.
It has also sent over 200 T-72 tanks over the past few weeks, CNN reports, quoting Polskie Radio, Poland’s national public-service radio.
The report said that Poland has so far provided military equipment worth $1.6 billion to Ukraine.
Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki made this disclosure last week.
This move, however, is against Russia’s earlier warning that any country, especially in the European Union that provides lethal weapons to Ukraine during the ongoing war, would face the consequences.
