The chairwoman of the Bundestag’s Defense Committee, Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, is of the opinion that Poland should face consequences if it stops supplying weapons to Ukraine. He believes that Germany should consider transferring anti-aircraft missile systems stationed in Poland directly to Ukraine.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in Polsat News that Polish-Ukrainian relations are “in a difficult state, to say the least.” When asked about further military support for Ukraine, he said that “we are no longer transferring any weapons, because we will now arm ourselves with the most modern weapons.” – If you don’t want to defend yourself, you must have something to defend yourself – this is our principle, which is why we have made increased orders – he added.

The chairwoman of the Bundestag’s Defense Committee reacted to Poland’s announcement – which is a reaction to the complaint that Ukraine filed against Poland to the World Trade Organization. Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann said that Poland should face consequences if it stops supplying weapons to Ukraine.
“If the Polish government no longer wants to supply weapons to Ukraine due to internal political propaganda, Germany should consider transferring the anti-aircraft missile systems stationed in Poland directly to Ukraine,” the chairwoman of the Bundestag’s Defense Committee told Spiegel, and the matter is described by Tagesspiegel.
She added that there could be no place in Europe for “such transparent internal electoral maneuvers of the Polish government in times of brutal Russian aggression,” Strack-Zimmermann emphasized.
weapons supplies for Ukraine. The government spokesman spoke
Government spokesman Piotr Müller was asked about this issue on Thursday.
– In the context of questions about arms supplies, I would like to inform you that Poland only carries out previously agreed supplies of ammunition and armaments. Including those resulting from the contracts signed with Ukraine. This includes: the largest foreign contract signed by the Polish arms industry after 1989, for the supply of the Krab howitzer – he said in an interview with PAP.
The statement was issued by the spokesman of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Olek Nikolenko said that during the meeting, “the Ukrainian ambassador once again presented the Ukrainian position and lack of acceptance of the Polish unilateral ban on the import of Ukrainian grain.”
