The United States is considering sending internationally banned weapons to Ukraine
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Wednesday (20) that his country will no longer supply weapons to Ukraine.
The two countries fell out due to a trade dispute. Poland and other European Union countries have banned the import of Ukrainian grain to protect their farmers.
However, on Friday the EU released Ukrainian grain imports released in May by five countries in the bloc (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania).
Two of these countries, Poland and Hungary, appealed the decision and imposed a unilateral ban. Ukraine said it would contact the World Trade Organization.
Zelensky’s statement at the United Nations
President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Tuesday (19) at the United Nations that his government is making efforts to resume the country’s grain export routes and that the “political theater” on this issue is helping the Russians.
Poles were uncomfortable with President Volodymyr Zelensky’s statements at the United Nations.
To indicate this, the Polish government urgently recalled its ambassador to protest President Volodymyr Zelensky’s statements at the United Nations.
Prime Minister Morawiecki even said he would expand the list of banned Ukrainian products if Kiev intensifies the struggle over grain.
Ukrainian diplomats urged Poland to “put aside emotions” and adopt a “constructive” approach to this conflict.
Then the Prime Minister of Poland said that his country would no longer supply weapons to Ukraine. He stated that he would do this because Poland itself is currently looking for more modern weapons.
The Prime Minister did not reveal when Poland, one of Ukraine’s main arms suppliers, stopped supplying weapons to them, nor whether this was related to the conflict over grain.
He added: “We are mainly focused on rapidly modernizing and arming the Polish Army so that it becomes one of the most powerful land armies in Europe in a very short period of time.”
He also said that the military center in the city of Rzeszow, through which Western materials destined for Ukraine pass, is operating normally.
