  • Poland has already exceeded the 3% of GDP defense spending mandate set by the Homeland Defense Act.
  • Poland has committed over 0.6% of its GDP to support Ukraine, more than France.
  • Poland is one of only nine NATO members to meet the defense-spending benchmark of 2% of GDP.
  • Poland is replacing Germany as the indispensable NATO ally in Europe.
