On Wednesday, January 11, a summit of the countries of the so-called Lublin triangle — Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania — took place in Lviv. 

As Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced during the traditional evening address, important news for Ukraine was announced at this meeting.

First of all, the Ukrainian leader thanked the President of Poland Andrzej Duda and the President of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda for the decisions made to transfer the necessary weapons to Ukraine.

"Poland decided to transfer tanks to Ukraine - I thank you for that.

Thank you to President Duda, the Polish government, and all our Polish friends.

Lithuania is transferring anti-aircraft systems to our country - the weapons we need to protect against Iranian drones and to protect our energy industry.

I thank Gitanas for this yet another manifestation of unchanging and principled support for Ukraine, which began before February 24 and will continue until our victory," Zelensky emphasized. 

According to him, both foreign leaders assured that they are ready to walk together with Ukraine on the way to restoring its territorial integrity and restoring peace. 

"Russian aggression must lose - it will," the Ukrainian leader assured.

Zelenskyi also reported that the issues of Ukraine's integration into both the European Union and NATO were discussed at this summit. 

"Already this year, we must achieve tangible progress in European integration.

This applies primarily to membership negotiations.

Poland and Lithuania are equally and comprehensively ready to support us," the Ukrainian president said.

He emphasized that now it is necessary to "transform this readiness, this energy into a real institutional movement, into real solutions."

As a reminder, Ukraine will receive a company of Leopard tanks from Poland.

According to NATO standards, a tank company consists of 14 tanks.
