EU Promises Poland Compensation For Arms Supply
Kresy news website quoted Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki as stating that Brussels would compensate Poland for providing weapons to Ukraine.
These payments were « a huge success, » said the politician. He continued by saying that the compensation was agreed at a European Council meeting.
The European Union is anticipated to send the first installment of €300 million before Easter (April 9). A second payment will amount to between €500 and €600 million.
We’ve been pushing for this from the beginning, and I’m glad we were able to do it, said Morawiecki. « This is a huge success for Poland. It’s very essential. »
He continued by saying he would keep pressing for the maximum amount of Ukrainian weapons funding from the European Peace Facility. The EU leaders also decided to contribute up to €3.5 billion to the Fund’s accounts in the upcoming months.
