Donald Tusk in Kiev. “There is nothing more important than support for Ukraine”
The Polish Prime Minister laid a wreath alongside his Ukrainian counterpart Denys Shmychal. The recording of this event was published on the profile of the Prime Minister’s Office on the X portal.
After the ceremony, Tusk gave a short statement to the Polish media. He was asked about the purposes of his visit.
– We must and will do so unequivocally confirm, both sides, full mutual support in the fight against evil. There is nothing more important than support for Ukraine against Russian attack. And this is absolutely issue number one, Tusk said. – We also have many bilateral issues to discuss. There are also some conflicts of interest, we know that well. And we will talk about it not only in the spirit of friendship, which is obvious, but with the attitude to solve these problems as quickly as possible, and not to maintain or multiply them, he added.
The Polish Prime Minister emphasized that it is very important for him to build the feeling that Poland is Ukraine’s most reliable and stable ally “in this deadly clash with evil.” – In fact, I am here in Kiev also for Polish security. This is not just a matter of Ukraine, it is a matter of the security of the entire free world, and Poland in particular, if only because of geography, Tusk said. – There is something to talk about, but it is important that we all have the belief that we are talking with friends who can also solve certain controversial problems, because, as we know, they also exist – he continued.
Tusk, asked if Poland had any special role to play in mobilizing the West to further help Ukraine, said he hoped so.
– We will talk about how we can jointly mobilize the West to take more vigorous action. This is one of the basic goals of my visit, he emphasized.
