In addition, during a joint press conference with Tusk, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Poland would provide Kyiv with a new package of weapons.

According to him, the politicians held "very productive" talks on all aspects of bilateral relations, including joint weapons production.

The plans include joint arms enterprises and projects, as well as investments in defense complexes.

"Today we had very productive talks with Mr. Prime Minister of Poland Donald Tusk. We discussed all aspects of our bilateral relations. The first is defense support. There is a new Polish defense package. We appreciate this continued assistance. The second is security guarantees. We discussed Poland's accession to the Group of Seven declaration. I am grateful for the readiness to start working on a bilateral agreement between our countries," Zelenskyy said.

The parties also discussed the situation on the border between Ukraine and Poland. According to the Ukrainian president, "at a time when we are defending not only our own independence but also the freedom of other peoples of Europe, in particular the Polish people, solidarity with Ukraine should not be destroyed by any obstacles."

Zelenskyy and Tusk also discussed energy cooperation and Ukraine's movement towards the EU.

"We have much more opportunities for our peoples and for the whole of Europe to increase and strengthen our energy potential. The fifth is our movement toward the European Union, and the appropriate steps. I am grateful for the willingness of Mr. Prime Minister to support Ukraine with his experience. I am sure we will be together in the European Union. We will be together in NATO. We will be free together - Ukraine and Poland," the Ukrainian President said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Tusk emphasized during his visit to Kyiv that "there is nothing more important than military support for Ukraine – this is the number one thing." The Prime Minister emphasized that it is important for him to create a feeling that Poland is the most reliable and stable ally "in this deadly battle with evil."

In April 2023, Zelenskyy said that Ukraine would like to receive strategic security guarantees before joining NATO.

On July 11-12, the G7 leaders' summit took place in Vilnius, where the presidents of the European Council, European Commission, and representatives of the Group of Seven countries agreed on the initiative of the Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine. Each of the countries will work with Ukraine on specific long-term commitments and agreements in the security sector.
