Ukrainian and Polish citizens must remain vigilant and not fall for Russian propaganda efforts to disrupt vitally important relations between the two countries, Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki said during a joint press briefing with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Warsaw on April 5.

“The Kremlin definitely hopes that Poland and Ukraine will quarrel,” he said.

“And so, I also urge you, my compatriots: be careful, don’t fall for this harmful Russian propaganda. We cannot allow ourselves to be divided.”

Morawiecki added that Ukrainian soldiers is fighting for both Ukraine’s and Poland’s freedom and independence.

The PM noted that Poland “is a real brotherly country for Ukraine,” which was the first to warn about Russian aggression, the first to support Ukraine militarily, and the first to volunteer to participate in post-war restoration of Ukraine.

On April 5, Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited Warsaw at the invitation of Polish President Andrzej Duda. This was Zelenskyy’s third trip abroad since Russia’s invasion, and the first official visit he made together with First Lady Olena Zelenska.
