President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden Margot Wallström and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland Jacek Czaputowicz.
The Head of State thanked Poland and Sweden for supporting Ukraine in the defense of sovereignty and territorial integrity and in the issue of the release of Ukrainian captives.
"Thank you for supporting the policy of sanctions against Russia. I am hopeful to continue it until the return of all Ukrainian territories,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
The President also stressed that combating corruption, poverty and economic stagnation was the second front for Ukraine. It is only by gaining victory on both fronts that Ukrainians can build a state they dream of and deserve.
For their part, the Polish and Swedish foreign ministers reaffirmed consistent support for Ukraine's efforts aimed to protect the territorial integrity, return all Ukrainian captives illegally detained by Russia, as well as the efforts in the issues of Ukraine's integration into the European Union.
In the context of celebrating the 10th anniversary of the EU's Eastern Partnership this year, Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that it was crucial for Ukraine to preserve the positive achievements of recent years and speed up the implementation of the Association Agreement and other systemic changes.
The President of Ukraine also assured the European partners that Ukraine would continue to move towards deepening its integration with the European Union and NATO.
