Andriy Sybiha met with the Polish delegation

Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Sybiha held consultations with the Polish delegation, which included Secretary of State, Head of the International Policy Bureau at the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland Jakub Kumoch, Head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland Michał Dworczyk and Ambassador of Poland to Ukraine Bartosz Cichocki.

Andriy Sybiha thanked the Polish government for its comprehensive support of Ukraine from the first minutes of the full-scale Russian invasion.

The interlocutors agreed that today's mutual support between Kyiv and Warsaw and the solidarity of the fraternal Polish people with Ukrainians create a unique opportunity for a new stage in bilateral relations, overcoming historical barriers and making significant progress in all issues on the bilateral agenda. "Today we are creating a new history of bilateral relations. A history that should be based on the full reconciliation of our people," said the Deputy Head of the Office of the President.

The parties discussed the issue of further attracting security support for our country by Poland to effectively counter Russian aggression.

The participants in the consultations agreed that today Ukraine is defending against Russian aggression not only its state, but also other European countries, their values and freedom.

During the meeting, considerable attention was paid to the economic support of our country in the context of the continued Russian blockade of Ukrainian ports, including the search for new solutions in the areas of infrastructure, logistics and customs control. The parties praised the active dialogue at the level of the relevant ministries of Ukraine and Poland to address the issues related to the need to build new logistics routes, speed up cargo clearance procedures and increase capacity at the Ukrainian-Polish border.

The Deputy Head of the Office of the President thanked the Polish side for actively lobbying for the issue of our country's membership in the EU.

Ukraine invited Poland to take an active part in the reconstruction of settlements and infrastructure.

The parties also discussed the schedule of political contacts between the leaders of the two countries for the near future.
