Visit to Ukraine a sign of EU’s strong support: Polish official

A delegation of prime ministers from Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia will travel to the Ukrainian capital on Tuesday in a show of solidarity.

The head of the Polish Prime Minister’s Office has said that the decision to organise a visit by Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, and two other government leaders to Kyiv was taken because Russia must not be allowed to continue its criminal operations in Ukraine.

PM Morawiecki along with Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, will join the Czech and Slovenian prime ministers, Petr Fiala and Janez Jansa, respectively, in Kyiv on Tuesday to meet Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainian prime minister.

“Having analysed all the risks, it has been decided that this visit must take place,” Michał Dworczyk told reporters on Tuesday, repeating that “we cannot allow Russia to continue its criminal operations in Ukraine.”

In Kyiv, the delegation will speak with President Zelensky and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on behalf of the European Council.

Mr Dworczyk also said that the prime ministers would hold a press conference in Kyiv to inform the public about the EU’s planned support of Ukraine.

He also said that “apart from a strong sign of the entire EU’s support for Ukraine, the Polish, Czech and Slovenian prime ministers will present a package of concrete assistance for that country.”

Mr Dworczyk also stated that the entire visit had been prepared in coordination with EU officials. “On Monday night, the prime minister held a phone conversation with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to agree upon the final details,” he added.
