Piotr Müller made the disclosure in an interview with private TV broadcaster Polsat News.

On Wednesday, Poland's President Andrzej Duda and senior government ministers agreed “to continue military supplies to Ukraine” amid Russia’s invasion, Müller said.

“And this is what matters the most at the moment because preparations are being made … for the biggest armoured battle since the Second World War,” he added, as quoted by Polish state news agency PAP.

Müller was referring to Russia’s all-out assault on eastern Ukraine, dubbed “the Battle of Donbas,” the PAP news agency reported.

“What matters the most now is to stop the Russian onslaught as far away from the Polish border as possible,” he told Polsat News.

Polish military aid to Ukraine 'runs into billions’

Müller also said that the Polish government was considering revealing the exact scale of its military assistance to Ukraine because “some people, even at home, are trying to make the impression that Poland’s aid may not be as far-reaching as it seems.”

He added: “President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine can really count on us as his country's closest friend, and this is being reflected in concrete action."

Müller estimated that Poland’s military aid to Ukraine “runs into billions of zlotys," the PAP news agency reported.

Thursday is day 57 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
