President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky visited Poland on Saturday. It was an unannounced visit. As he reported on social media, he was in Lublin. "I would like to thank all of Poland for the invaluable support and solidarity that helps defend the freedom of our entire Europe", he wrote.
The President of Ukraine announced his visit via social media. "On the way to Ukraine, in Lublin, I had the honor to honor the efforts of Polish citizens, volunteers, people who have no indifference in their hearts", he wrote.
As he said, in Lubin he presented awards to two people – journalist Bianka Zalewska, who has been reporting on events in Ukraine since 2014, and Polish medic Damian Duda.
"Together with his team, he came to Ukraine: to Bakhmut, Soledar, to the front line in the south. He saved our boys, our warriors, founded a foundation that finances the purchase of medicines, created a center for training combat doctors, actively conducts training for journalists and volunteers who they are leaving for a war zone", he wrote.
"I would like to thank all of Poland for its invaluable support and solidarity that helps defend the freedom of our entire Europe", he noted.
Volodymyr Zelensky recently visited the United States and Canada. The Ukrainian leader's meetings abroad coincided with the cooling of relations between Kyiv and Warsaw. In mid-September, Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary extended the embargo on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products. In response, the authorities in Kyiv filed an official complaint to the World Trade Organization.
The dispute heated up when, during a speech in the US, Volodymyr Zelensky said: - It is disturbing how some of our friends in Europe are playing solidarity in political theater by making a thriller with grain. It may seem that they are playing their own role, but in fact they are helping to prepare the stage for the Moscow actor, he said.
The Ukrainian president's statement caused a wave of comments.
- Of course, there is a certain dispute turning into a legal dispute between Poland and Ukraine regarding grain. Also resulting from the fact that incomplete information has been provided in the public space for a long time – president of Poland said.
As the president said, he "received Zelensky's words with great regret." — I must admit, there is some bitterness in my heart. I understand all those who are angry perfectly well. Indeed, there are few countries in the world that have recently helped Ukraine and Ukrainians as much as we have, he noted.
