On February 24, the anniversary of Ukraine’s invincibility, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal met in Kyiv with Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki.
The heads of government met the first 4 Leopard 2 tanks provided by Poland and greeted Ukrainian tank crew members who already had successful combat experience.
“A year ago, tanks entered Ukraine to deprive Ukrainians of their freedom. Today, tanks have also entered Ukraine, but to protect freedom. We thank our military for their reliable protection. We are grateful to Poland and all our partners for taking decisive steps to bring Ukraine’s victory closer. Under the leadership of the President of Ukraine, we continue to expand the tank coalition to bring freedom back to all Ukrainian territories,” said Denys Shmyhal.
During the meeting, the Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Poland discussed expanding the capacity of crossing points on the common border, strengthening logistics capabilities between the countries, and assistance in demining. In addition, the parties touched upon the issue of sending the military and civilians to Poland for treatment.
