Ukraine has ordered 100 armoured vehicles designed by the Finnish defence contractor Patria, to be delivered by Poland.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday.
The multi-purpose Patria AMV vehicles are manufactured in Poland under a license from Patria and are known as Rosomak. Nearly 700 of them have been produced in Poland.
The order is financed with funds given to Poland by the EU and the US, earmarked to support Ukraine.
Leopard tanks on the way
Last autumn, defence sources reported that Finnish-made Patria Pasi armoured personnel carriers were in use by the Ukrainian Army. The Finnish government has not officially confirmed the delivery of armoured vehicles to Ukraine but has so far sent 13 packages of military aid to Ukraine.
The latest package, sent last month, included three German-made Leopard 2 mine clearing tanks as part of an EU-wide effort to help Ukraine defend itself against the Russian invasion.
In 2018, the majority-state-owned Patria faced controversy after Patria AMV vehicles were seen being used by the United Arab Emirates in the war against Houthi rebels in Yemen.
