Ukrainian President Zelensky in Warsaw on Wednesday


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will make an official visit to Warsaw on April 5, a Polish presidential official announced on Monday. 

“It is is an official visit”, but the Ukrainian president “wants to meet Poles and Ukrainians living in Poland” as well, the head of the international policy office, Marcin Przydacz, told private Polish radio RMF FM.

During the visit, Mr. Zelensky will meet his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda to discuss issues related to security, economic and agricultural cooperation, including those relating to the transport of Ukrainian grain through Poland, as well as issues related to the history between the two countries, said Mr. Przydacz.

“We want this agenda to be as comprehensive as possible”, said Mr. Przydacz.

In a statement scheduled for Wednesday evening at the Royal Palace in the historic center of the Polish capital, President Zelensky “will address a few words to Poles, in the context of what happened last year – how Poles are helping Ukraine, the (Ukrainian) refugees at the border, or welcome them home (…) I think that is the purpose of this meeting”, according to the same source.

Discussions with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki are also planned.

“We are preparing a number of elements that will make this visit special”, Mr. Przydacz further specified.

Before Warsaw , the Ukrainian president has already visited Washington, London, Paris and Brussels.
