Polish President Andrzej Duda will participate on Friday night in a videoconference convened by US President Joe Biden to discuss the Ukrainian crisis with EU, Nato and other leaders, Duda’s aide has said.
Paweł Szrot told a private radio broadcaster RMF FM that the meeting will be held in the same format as a virtual meeting with European and Nato leaders held by Biden as last week.
“The format is the same as before, that is, the most important leaders of the Western world. Eastern Europe is represented… by President Duda and by President Klaus Iohannis from Romania,” Szrot said, adding that this is Biden’s third such videoconference on the Russia-Ukraine crisis with EU and Nato leaders.
Two previous virtual meetings were held on January 24 and February 11 with Duda in attendance.
According to the office of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who will also attend the Friday video call, the planned multilateral talks of Nato member states are to help develop a joint action plan in the face of the crisis affecting Ukraine.
On Friday afternoon, Russian media reported a massive blast in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, controlled by Russian-backed separatists, aggravating Western fears of Russia’s plan to trigger an invasion.
According to the Ukrainian Centre for Strategic Communications, it was a deliberate provocation by militants.
