Warsaw has provided Ukraine with nearly $9 billion in military aid spread across 44 packages since Russia’s invasion in early 2022, Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita reported on April 25, citing the country’s Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski.

“The total value of the Polish government's support, excluding the billions of dollars allocated for refugees, for the first two years of the war is about $9 billion,” said Sikorski.

He added that Warsaw has joined the G7 countries in pledging long-term support for Kyiv. Supporting Ukraine's independence and its aspirations to join the EU remains a priority for the Polish government, according to the minister.

“Ukraine's gradual integration into Euro-Atlantic structures in the broad sense also remains a strategic goal," Sikorski said.
