In addition to heavy equipment, Poland also transferred drones manufactured by the Polish company WB Electonics, which are used, among other things, for intelligence activities.

The Ukrainian side says that it has Polish drones Warmate - a system of barrage ammunition, similar to the American kamikaze drones Switchblade, according to the publication.

From the Polish arsenal, Ukrainian defenders also received Piorun portable anti-aircraft missile systems, which, according to unofficial information, have already shot down Russian helicopters.
