The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has appointed new Ambassadors to Ukraine and Russia, reported the website of the Department.
Today Minister Witold Waszczykowski has appointed new Polish Ambassadors on behalf of the Polish President. Wlodzimierz Marchinyak will represent Poland in Moscow, while Yan Peklo will head the Embassy in Kyiv, reads a statement.
Yan Peklo is a known publicist, Executive Director of the Polish-Ukrainian Cooperation PAUCI. He fluently speaks English, Ukrainian and Russian languages.
Since 2011, the Polish Diplomatic Mission in Ukraine has been headed by Henryk Litwin.
According to the Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine Olena Zerkal, the appointment of Mikhail Babich for the post of the Russian Ambassador to Ukraine has been withdrawn from the agenda on the Ukraine’s initiative. Zerkal is sure the absence of the Russian Ambassador won’t affect the development of bilateral relations, and recalled that Russia has dismissed the Ukrainian Ambassador long ago.
