The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) will receive 100 Polish Rosomak [Wolverine] armored personnel carriers. The purchase will be made at the expense of the United States and the European Union.

This follows from a statement by Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki posted on Twitter.

"The Ukrainian army will buy from us 100 Rosomak armored personnel carriers, which are manufactured at the plant in Siemianowice Slaskie. The "Wolverines" are the most modern combat transporters. Payment for this purchase will be made from EU and US money," the Polish Prime Minister wrote.

Then the Patria AMV design won the tender against the Swiss Piranha III and the Austrian Pandur II.
