Warsaw worried about nuclear race if US doesn't approve aid to Ukraine

If the US Congress does not approve aid to Ukraine, the consequences will be felt throughout the world, said Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski in an interview with the Bloomberg agency.

He explained that in this case a number of countries would consider the possibility of developing nuclear weapons programs. "If aid is not provided, US allies will be disappointed and realize that Washington may not be able to help ... this will have profound consequences for all US alliances around the world." Countries will begin to insure themselves, and others will consider developing nuclear weapons programs," the Polish minister shared his view of the situation.

Sikorsky said EU members would be able to fulfill the promise of one million artillery shells they plan to transfer to Ukraine by March. The minister specified that the allies have already managed to collect about 850,000 shells. /BGNES
