Grzegorz Schetyna: Poland ready to sell weapon to Ukraine

Poland is open to sell weapons to Ukraine. It was stated by Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna.

Grzegorz Schetyna warns that it depends on the financial capacity of Ukraine. But Poland is open for cooperation in this area, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Radio TOK FM.

Grzegorz Schetyna stresses that it is not necessary to create an atmosphere around this issue, like Poland will now begin to sell arms. The Minister stresses that the Ukrainians themselves must allocate funds for the purchase of weapons.

"This is their sovereign right and decision," he said.

Schetyna added that it is also "the matter of the financial capacity of Ukraine and the will to make difficult and tough decisions."

Tomasz Siemoniak, Vice-Minister and Polish Minister of Defense, in his turn, stressed that there was no obstacle for the Polish industry to begin selling weapons to Ukraine.

In the conversation on radio RMF FM, Andrii Deshchytsia, Ambassador of Ukraine, said, "Actually Ukraine has its own weapon. But I think that these talks should be conducted by people who understand weapon and experts from the Ministry of Defense and such consultations are continuing." Deshchytsia added that at the moment Ukraine was focused on "finding a political and diplomatic solution to the situation."
