    President Duda at the Ammunition Summit in Prague

    President Andrzej Duda participated in an extraordinary ammunition summit convened by Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala. The meeting in Prague follows the Czech ammunition initiative, part of broader international efforts to ensure Ukraine is adequately supplied with weapons and ammunition.

    During the joint press conference of the summit leaders, President Duda emphasized the significance of the meeting. “The situation on the Ukrainian-Russian front is difficult. Russia is preparing for another major offensive. Ukraine is suffering from a lack of ammunition. The main responsibility for supplying Ukraine with weapons and ammunition lies with Western countries,” said Andrzej Duda.

    “We are aware that acquiring ammunition is one thing, and delivering it is another. I would like to highlight Poland’s role, particularly the Rzeszów-Jasionka airport, in this project. During today’s meeting, I will confirm our full readiness to mobilize all resources needed for the effective transport of ammunition to Ukraine,” added the President.

    Following the press conference, President Duda participated in multilateral talks led by Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala. Before departing for the Czech Republic, Andrzej Duda noted that 800,000 artillery shells of 122 mm and 155 mm calibers would be delivered to Ukraine as part of the ammunition initiative. “We, as Poland, are involved. I took up this initiative during a meeting convened by President Macron in Paris. I am glad Poland is part of it,” said the President.

    The ammunition summit included the Prime Ministers of the Czech Republic, Denmark, the Netherlands, Latvia, and representatives from Ukraine and the United States.
