He also noted that the issue of resale of 1.2 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine by Poland to Ukraine remains relevant.

"This issue remains relevant and there is a readiness to fulfill it. It is possible that the transfer will take place in parts," Bodnar said.

He noted that Poland for a certain period received less vaccine from suppliers to meet domestic needs and it does not give up its promise to provide Ukraine with the vaccine.

Meanwhile, Estonia will allocate 1 million euros to Ukraine. This money will be used to help curb the humanitarian crisis.

The funds should be received this year.

"In recent years, almost a third of Estonia's humanitarian aid has been sent to Ukraine. We will continue to support it and help those in need," the statement said.
