Is Poland arming Ukraine by the back door?
Poland appears to be arming Ukraine by the back door, after the Ukrainian state-owned defence company Ukroboronpromannounced that it was ready to upgrade tanks to the standard Polish model, and test them in Poland.
A statement issued by Ukrobronprom this week says that the concern was ready to upgrade about 300 T-72 tanks to Polish ‘Twardy’ PT-91s, to meet NATO standards. The Ukrainian tanks are currently in army reserve.
Yuri Pashchenko, deputy director general of the company, said: “Modernised units can solve some of the Ukrainian army’s crucial problems… [such] military equipment will help to further strengthen the Ukrainian army, which needs fast and efficient re-arming now.”
The Ukrobronprom statement adds: “[Mr Pashchenko] noted that the Polish side has given the Ukrainian military a chance to test PT-91 samples on their proving ground.”
The PT-91 ‘Twardy’ is the main Polish battle tank. It was developed from 1991 by Poland’s defence company Bumar, to replace the country’s own T-72 models from the Soviet era.
Poland, along with the US and other European Union nations, has so far refused to arm Ukraine directly. However, both Poland and the UK will send troops to help train the Ukrainian army.

The EU is sending military aid to UKR
From where it will enter UKR ?
Who is sending the aid ?
Germany ! But is it NOT part of NATO ?
And from where will it enter UKR ? The Southern ports are all under Putin.So they will come from Poland or Estonia – BUT THESE ARE PART OF NATO !
Now,when the aid comes it Russian Jets bomb them or Drones shoot the convoys or the convoys are chased back into Poland and bombed in Poland – then ……………
Art 5 !
These drones flying in UKR airspace and bombing Russian APC/Tanks – are they UKR or …………………. NATO ?
Between Poland and Estonia – which NATO nation,will Putin choose 1st ?
Thus the Putin Nuclear Command is activated ! dindooohindoo
The whole of Europe is the target
The aim is to bring PRC into a strategic embrace of Russia – with a swap to Russian Gas via the Siberian Gas Pipelines.That will PERMANENTLY SOLVE THE OIL /ENERGY SECURITY OF PRC, AND THE RISK OF A NAVAL BLOCKADE IN THE SCS AND THE HORN OF AFRICA.
RUSSIA HAS ALL THE OIL/GAS/COAL,MINERALS AND RARE EARTHS THAT PRC NEEDS !
THAT WILL DRASTICALLY LOWER THE COST OF CHINESE MANUFACTURING + DESTROY EU MANUFACTURING & GERMAN MANUFACTURING, THERE WILL BE NO EU MANUFACTURING EXPORTS TO PRC,AND IT WILL CRASH THE EURO, & RUIN THE EU ECONOMIES WITH JOB LOSSES AND LOWER STANDARDS OF LIVING – & WILL CONVERT THE EU, INTO A 3 RD WORLD BLOCK – WHICH GERMANY & FRANCE,WILL NOT SUPPORT,AND HENCE ,THE EU WILL BREAK UP.
ONCE THERE IS NO EU – AND NO MONEY IN EU – THERE WILL BE NO NATO !
THAT IS THE PUTIN-XI PLAN – & SO,THEY WANT MORE SANCTIONS.HIGHER ENERGY AND MINERALS WILL PUSH PRC TO PUTIN & ALSO INCREASE, INFLATION IN THE EU. dindooohindoo
