In a warehouse “Seen from Poland” we are talking about signing by President Andrzej Duda, in Katowice, the law establishing the National Day of the Silesian Uprisings. It is celebrated on June 20. It is to commemorate the three uprisings of 1919-1921 and to honor their heroic participants.

– It can safely be said that if it had not been for these great military deeds, if not for the heroism of Wielkopolska, if not for the heroism of the Silesians, who wanted to be part of the reborn Republic of Poland, in the Republic, wanted to live and work for the Republic, this Republic might not have survived even its own for a little over 20 years, during the time it existed in the interwar period – the president said after signing the law.

He ruled that “the great military act of the three Silesian Revolts cannot be overstated.” – Thank you very much that it will be a holiday that will be remembered by all of Poland, because it will be a holiday that will be included in our national political calendar, which will be preserved as a holiday – stressed President Duda.

In addition to heavy equipment, there are also drones produced by the Polish WB Electronics, which serve, among other things, for reconnaissance activities. The Ukrainians themselves boast that they have Polish Warmate drones – a circulating ammunition system similar to the US Switchblade. In recent years, unmanned aerial vehicles have become an integral part of the equipment of the land forces.
