    The Prime Minister of Poland announced on Tuesday that the country will be requesting reparations from the European Peace Facility (EPF) of the European Union to cover the cost of military equipment supplied to Ukraine.

    At a press conference related to Poland’s plans to provide German-made Leopard tanks to Ukraine, Mateusz Morawiecki announced that the country intended to seek reimbursement from the EU for any expenses related to supplying weapons to its neighbour.

    “Of course, we will also file to the EU for a refund. This will be another test of the EU’s goodwill. The EU should compensate these costs and I hope this will happen,”

    Morawiecki said.

    Established in 2021, the off-budget European Peace Facility is an instrument that enhances the EU’s role as a global security provider. One of its purposes is to compensate EU states for their military aid to Ukraine.
