    Deputy FM Paweł Jabłoński attends the Foreign Affairs Council

    Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Paweł Jabłoński takes part in The Foreign Affairs Council. The council discussed and exchanged views on the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

    In a joint session gathering EU foreign affairs and defence ministers, the Council then agreed on the three-track proposal put forward by the High Representative and Commissioner Breton to urgently provide Ukraine with artillery ammunition, either coming from existing stocks or jointly procured.

    Today, the Council has confirmed its agreement on this three-track approach. Today’s decision is important by its ambition – we will work under very tight deadlines because the purpose is to provide one million ammunition in one year -, by the scope – we combine delivery from existing stocks and joint procurement of new production -, and by its financial volume – we are talking about €2 billion of reimbursement -. […] The Council has also agreed to consider a further increase of the overall financial capability of the EPF by €3,5 billion.
