Statement by the chairmen of the Foreign Affairs Committee on the supply of arms to Ukraine

We, the chairmen of the Foreign Affairs Committees of our countries (Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia):

- Reiterating our total opposition and strong condemnation of the unprovoked
and unjustified military aggression by the Russian Federation against Ukraine
on February 24, 2022;

- Recalling that since February 20, 2014. Russia has been violating the sovereignty, independence
and territorial integrity of Ukraine by attacking and unlawfully occupying the Ukrainian Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the city of Sevastopol, and parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions;

- Emphasizing Ukraine's unshakable rights to self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter, which it has triggered;

- Being convinced that a free and democratic Ukraine is crucial for peace, security and stability throughout Europe;

- Given Russia's undeniable military advantage over Ukraine in terms of the amount of heavy weaponry that remains in action even after Russia's military defeats in Ukraine,

we conclude as follows:

1. we appreciate the courage of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and all Ukrainian citizens defending their country against outnumbered Russian troops;

2 We emphasize that Ukraine must win this war and restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders, including reminding all totalitarian regimes that any use or threat of force is unacceptable in the 21st century;

3 We emphasize that the Ukrainian military needs urgent and substantial supplies of heavy weapons,
including artillery, tanks, armored vehicles, MLRS and adequate ammunition to be able to defeat the Russian troops still present on Ukrainian territory;

4. we call on our allies and partners to increase military support
and technical for Ukraine and to expedite adequate supplies in the face of Russia's expanding and escalating aggression against Ukraine;

5. call on the Russian Federation to stop its aggression against Ukraine, withdraw its troops
from the sovereign territory of Ukraine, return to the principles of international law
and compensate Ukraine for any losses resulting from the war caused by Russia.
