Polish authorities stopped the supply of weapons and military equipment for the armed forces of Ukraine. The head of the Polish government, Mateusz Morawiecki, spoke about this on Wednesday, September 20.
As the politician said on the Polsat TV channel, Warsaw is no longer moving any weapons to Kyiv, because Poland itself needs to actively arm itself.
< p>The head of the Polish cabinet explained that he followed the principle “If you don't want to defend yourself, you must have something to defend yourself.”
< p>Morawiecki's statement came against the background of economic disputes between Poland and Ukraine. Warsaw unilaterally imposed an embargo on Ukrainian grain imports to protect Polish farmers. Kiev threatened to take proceedings at the WTO and ban the import of fruits and vegetables from Poland.
Polish President Andrzej Duda reminded the Ukrainian authorities as a warning that all arms supplies from Western partners go through Ukraine.
At the same time , just hours before Morawiecki's statement, his deputy and the chairman of Poland's ruling party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, assured that Polish authorities would continue to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia, despite disagreements over the supply of agricultural products.
