According to several Ukrainian and Russian sources Poland sent two battalions of its military to the Dnieper region.
At least two battalions of Polish army military personnel were transferred to the territory of Ukraine. The latter include anti-tank guns, artillery, armored vehicles, etc., while the military itself is already located on the territory of the Dnepropetrovsk region, i.e., in fact, in the front area. The information on this subject was voiced by Russian war correspondent Evgeny Poddubny.
According to Poddubny, the Polish military arrived on the territory of Ukraine a few days ago. And, apparently, they tried to do this very covertly in order to avoid a direct confrontation with Russia.
“A couple of days ago, it became known about the arrival of two Polish battalions in the Pavlograd region of the Dnepropetrovsk region, equipped withMT-12 Rapira is a 100 mm towed anti-tank gun, armored personnel carriers, and American armored cars. At the same time, recruitment for volunteer military service began in Poland itself. So-called “military picnics” have started in a number of Polish cities, ”said a Russian war correspondent.
At the moment, it is known that only Polish mercenaries take part in hostilities on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, however, information about the involvement of Polish military personnel appears for the first time. However, it should be noted that Poddubny could not provide any reliable facts.
It should be noted that on Sunday Ukraine and Poland agreed to establish a joint border customs control and work on a shared railway company to ease the movement of people and increase Ukraine’s export potential.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and Polish President Andrzej Duda touted the increased cooperation between the countries during a meeting in Kyiv on Sunday, with Duda offering Warsaw’s backing for the embattled neighbour.
“The Polish-Ukrainian border should unite not divide,” Duda told lawmakers as he became the first foreign leader to give a speech in person to the Ukrainian parliament since Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion.
Zelenskiy called the joint border customs control a “revolutionary” move.
“This will significantly speed up border procedures,” Zelenskiy said in his nightly video address, after Duda’s visit.
