According to the prime minister, Ukraine will pay for the vehicles with cash collected from the European Union and the United States. Morawiecki stated that Poland has asked its Western allies to bolster funds for Ukraine’s struggle against the Russian invasion. The lawmaker did not disclose the order’s cost.

The Siemianowice lskie factory is run by Rosomak SA, a local affiliate of the Polish state-owned defense conglomerate PGZ. The organization creates Rosomak with permission from the Finnish Government. Since 2004, around 900 vehicles of various configurations have exited the Polish facility.

In its battle configuration, the Rosomak can carry a crew of three and eight soldiers. According to PGZ data, the vehicle reaches a maximum speed of 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour).
