Polish PM Morawiecki: 'Without the US, there wouldn't be a free Ukraine anymore'
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki sat down with FRANCE 24’s Marc Perelman at the Munich Security Conference to talk about the war in Ukraine and US President Joe Biden’s upcoming visit to Poland to mark the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion.
The prime minister said that Poland was in favour of delivering as many weapons as possible to Ukraine – including fighter jets – to enable its military to regain territory occupied by Russia as soon as possible.
Full military support for Ukraine could make 2023 a “turning moment” In European history, Morawiecki said. “I do believe that 2023, with our determination, will be the end of the war in Ukraine. And I do believe Ukraine will win that war.”
US President Joe Biden will visit Poland on Monday ahead of the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Morawiecki said the visit would be “symbolic” and expressed gratitude for the support the US has shown Ukraine. He added that the two leaders planned to discuss increasing supplies of ammunition and other weapons to Ukrainian forces.
