On March 26, Poland and Germany will launch a coalition to supply armored vehicles to the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

Polish Defense Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz announced this after discussions with German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius.

The Polish Minister noted that this is one of the most important coalitions that have been created.

According to him, other partners, including the UK, Sweden, and Italy, have agreed to participate in the coalition.

Kosiniak-Kamysz emphasized that Warsaw and Berlin would be leading this project.

As previously reported, Ukraine and the North Atlantic Alliance will establish a joint training center in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated this on February 15, after a meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Council.

“This center will allow Ukraine to share the experience it gained during the Russian-Ukrainian war and will create a structure that will enable the Armed Forces of Ukraine to learn and train side by side with NATO partners,” the Secretary General pointed out.

The NATO Secretary General emphasized that the joint center in Poland is necessary not only for Ukraine but also for NATO.

Stoltenberg did not disclose details about the center’s work, adding that it will facilitate the process of sharing experiences.
