UKRAINE-RUSSIA-POLAND – TELAM Agency
Ukraine has ordered one hundred Rosomak armored vehicles, manufactured in Poland under Finnish license, which will be financed by the European Union and the United States, the Polish Prime Minister announced today.
“I bring yesterday’s order from Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Schmyhal for 100 Rosomaks to be built here,” Mateusz Morawiecki said at the Rosomak production plant in Siemianowice Slaskie, in southern Poland.
The order will be financed with European funds granted to Poland and with US funds obtained by Ukraine, the head of the Polish government indicated, without specifying the amount of the contract.
Rosomak is an eight-wheeled multifunctional armored vehicle licensed by the Finnish Motherland.
Poland, Ukraine’s neighbor and one of its strongest allies in the war against Russia, became the first country two weeks ago to promise to send fighter jets to kyiv.
In its announcement, the Polish government said it will send four Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets out of 15 it has, inherited in the 1990s from the communist East German armed forces.
The MiGs delivered to Ukraine to reinforce military aid and neutralize Russian might in the war they have been waging since February 2022 will be replaced by the South Korean FA-50 aircraft that Poland recently acquired, and then by F-35s from the United States.
