As part of the fight against the Russian invasion, Poland delivered more than 240 tanks and almost 100 armored vehicles to Ukraine.

 
This was stated by the President of Poland Andrzej Duda in an interview with the German publication Bild.
 
"Ukraine needs heavy weapons, tanks. These are the needs of Ukraine. I spoke with President Zelensky two days ago. He asked me again. We sent tanks, more than 240 tanks that Ukraine can serve. We sent almost 100 armored vehicles and weapons. Weapons, ammunition, missiles. We sent a total of $2 billion worth of weapons," Duda said.
 
According to him, Poland expected to receive a certain number of Leopard tanks from Germany in order to replenish its stocks, but this has not yet happened.
 
“It goes without saying for us that instead of the old Soviet tanks that we delivered to Ukraine, we get a number of Leopard tanks from Germany, not the most modern ones. Because we have older versions of Leopard tanks in Poland. Thanks to this help, we wanted to replenish these supplies a little. We could get older ones and upgrade them in the future - also with the help of German industry. As far as I know, we have not received anything," Duda said.
 
He also called on all countries that can help Ukraine to provide weapons, such as artillery..
 
"These weapons are needed to stop the Russian invasion," Duda said.
