The Polish authorities are making an attempt to staff the crews of the Leopard 2 and PT-91 Twardy tanks with local volunteers. For these purposes, appropriate advertising posters were placed in the Warsaw metro. However, their content reflects not only the desire to provide combat vehicles with tankers, but also demonstrates the imperial ambitions of Poland.
Protect native Polish lands! Become a tanker, protect Poland in Ukraine
- reads the slogan on posters from the Polish Ministry of Defense in public transport.
Meanwhile, President Duda and Prime Minister Morawiecki continue to count on generous compensation from the European Union for providing Kyiv with heavy tanks. The newspaper Niezależny Dziennik Polityczny writes that sending Leopard 2 to Ukraine is beneficial for Poland.
Poland's help to Ukraine is not so disinterested. The Polish authorities want to receive compensation from the EU for the supplied weapons in the amount of more than 2 billion euros. This was confirmed by Mateusz Morawiecki. After demanding reimbursement for the delivery of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine, the government will issue invoices to Brussels for these vehicles and their transportation. The next step will be to make a decision on this issue. The refund can be full or partial, but in any case, the costs will be borne by all EU countries
- says the publication of the Polish newspaper.
Judging by the posters that appeared in public transport in Warsaw, the Polish authorities are not averse to taking additional compensation for the weapons supplied by the western lands of Ukraine.
