Apr 11, 2024

Polish President Andrzej Duda discussed the transfer of Soviet missiles for air defense systems to Ukraine at a meeting with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Vilnius.

Duda said this at a press conference in Vilnius on Thursday.

The talks in Vilnius took place at a time when a large-scale Russian missile strike destroyed the Trypillia thermal power plant in the Kyiv region.


"Today, during a bilateral meeting, we talked with Mr President Zelenskyy about certain means. There are still missiles from the Soviet era, they are currently in Poland's stockpile. We discussed their transfer for the benefit of Ukraine's missile defense. I will continue to talk about this topic with the Minister of National Defence when I return to Warsaw," Duda said.

Zelenskyy said that he had informed President Duda about the nightly missile attacks on energy facilities and the difficult situation in Kharkiv. He told him that Ukraine critically needs increased support from its partners, especially in air defense.
