Morawiecki said the Ukrainian order would be financed through EU and US funds. On 6 April, Poland’s government spox Piotr Müller said that Ukraine ordered 150 Rosomak vehicles in Poland. Today Zelenskyy confirmed that Ukraine would receive 100 Rosomak vehicles shortly without specifying the supply schedule, while another batch of 100 Polish IFVs will be delivered to Ukraine “now.”

“Poland has fulfilled everything it declared about tanks: they are already in Ukraine, including Leopards,” Zelenskyy said. “There are new agreements on armored personnel carriers: more than a hundred vehicles. As for armored personnel carriers, we agreed to supply 200 vehicles. One hundred now and one hundred later. Also, self-propelled mortars, additional missiles, MiGs [will be delivered to Ukraine].”
