Poland and Denmark don’t consider any other scenarios than those ones preserving Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty.

RMF24 reported this after Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk met with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen in Poland.

“We will work together now and in the future for a united, clear and honest EU position on the war in Ukraine. We will be among those who help and mobilise others to help Ukraine. Denmark and Poland rule out any scenario other than one in which Ukraine preserves its territorial integrity and independence,” Donald Tusk stated.

He noted that Poland and Denmark share similar outlook on support for Ukraine, both being members of multiple coalitions to supply weapons to Ukraine within the Ramstein format, including artillery, armoured vehicles, unmanned systems and cyber security.

During a meeting, Tusk announced Poland was to join the so-called European Sky Shield Initiative, which currently includes 21 countries, according to Bloomberg as the EU states now agree Europe should implement its own Iron Dome air defense.

Tusk emphasized that the same Iranian drones that attacked Israel target Ukraine systematically and he thinks it “doesn’t take much imagination” to realize Europe may need protection from drones and missiles itself. Thus, air defense investments are extremely essential now.

Previusly, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, claimed that Ukraine should have the same amount of support Israel, not a NATO member, received during a large-scale Iranian attack on April 13.
