It is the duty of Western countries to provide weapons to Ukraine, which is resisting Russian aggression, Polish President Andrzej Duda said, Polskie Radio reported.

Artillery shells are of decisive importance at Ukraine’s frontline, Duda believes.

Speaking about Russian aggression, he argued that the West needs to do everything it can to help Ukraine in defense.

Should Moscow succeed in defeating Kyiv in this war, this will mean a strategic threat to the entire Atlantic region, Duda said.

The Czech initiative to transfer ammunition to Ukraine’s Defense Forces is hugely important as this is now one of the main proposals to strengthen Ukrainian defense capabilities in a very short period, he noted.

"Poland fully supports the Czech initiative – both politically and financially."

Poland "is happy to accept" Czechia's request to deliver 800,000 artillery shells to Ukraine, he wrote on X.
