The Polish group PGZ (Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa) and Ukrainian Defence Industry, a joint stock company formerly known as Ukroboronprom, signed the cooperation agreement on Wednesday, during Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to Poland.

Poland has thus become the second NATO country which Ukrainian Defence Industry will produce tank shells with.

The agreement provides for the establishment of new production lines designed to produce "a large number of ammunition" in Poland.

Ukraine, for its part, will provide technology and qualified specialists with relevant expertise.

Components required for the production of ammunition will be supplied by both sides according to their means and capabilities.
