Greece and Poland urge EU to create common air defence shield


Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Polish counterpart Donald Tusk submitted a letter to the European Commission on Thursday urging the creation of a Europe-wide air defence system.

According to Ekathimerini, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen endorsed the proposal on social media, reiterating her call for more unified defense initiatives.

The letter, not yet public, suggests discussing the initiative at the EU summit in late June. It highlights the urgency of joint defense efforts in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the necessity of supporting Ukraine’s military needs.

The importance of air defence has been in sharper focus for Poland, which borders Ukraine and has seen missiles enter its airspace.
