Poland’s Ambassador to the United States, Marek Magierowski, responded to the Pentagon’s refusal of a plan to transfer warplanes from the European nation to the United States, accepting the conclusion that it was “too escalatory.”
Speaking to CNN on Thursday, Magierowski addressed America’s rejection of the offer to resupply the Ukrainian Air Force, claiming it was time to “move on” and focus on “the unity and cohesion of NATO.”
Last week, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed Washington was exploring a proposal that would see Poland supply Ukraine with Soviet-era warplanes in return for American-made F-16s. Poland refused that suggestion over fears it would become too embroiled in the conflict.
