Poland's Defense Minister Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz has unequivocally stated that his country has no intentions to dispatch its troops to Ukraine.

This affirmation came during a press conference aired by TVP Info, where he emphasized Poland's stance.

"While Poland remains committed to aiding Ukraine militarily, including through training programs and arms supplies, the deployment of Polish Armed Forces to Ukraine is not on the agenda," the Polish defense chief declared.

This declaration comes amid discussions among Western nations regarding further assistance to Ukraine.

French President Emmanuel Macron disclosed on February 26 that during a Paris meeting, which included representatives from around 20 Western countries, the prospect of troop deployment was broached.

Macron indicated that although consensus was not achieved, the potential for such action in the future remains open.

The Polish Defense Ministry has consistently iterated its stance against sending troops to Ukraine.

Nonetheless, Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski commended President Macron's initiative, underscoring Poland's solidarity with its Western allies in addressing the crisis in Ukraine.
