(MENAFN) Poland has been a strong supporter of Ukraine in its ongoing conflict with Russia, providing both diplomatic and military assistance. This includes the recent pledge by Polish President Andrzej Duda to send four MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, making Poland the first NATO member to do so. The Polish mission in France has since clarified that the remarks made by its ambassador, Jan Emeryk Rosciszewski, were not an admission that Warsaw was ready to go to war with Russia, but rather a warning and a pledge to continue supporting Kiev.
Rosciszewski's statement reflects the sentiment of many in Poland that the conflict in Ukraine is a threat to the values of their civilization and culture, and that Poland may be forced to join the conflict if Ukraine is unable to protect its independence. This sentiment is further evidenced by the fact that more than 2.5 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries since the war started, and that the two largest cities in Poland have warned they can no longer absorb Ukrainian refugees
