Sanctions Over Russian Aggression Must Definitely Remain in Place: Polish President

President of Poland Andrzej Duda stressed that Poland is convinced that the sanctions policy against Russian aggression must definitely remain in place until the occupation ends.

President Andrzej Duda and Poland’s First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda make a state visit to Ukraine on October 11-13.

During the joint briefing with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on Monday, President Duda highlighted that the issue of Crimea is very important and Poland emphasises in the international arena that Crimea is occupied by Russia.

“I reaffirm that Poland supports Ukraine in the issue of Ukrainian borders and [urges] that the borders must be restored within the internationally recognised framework. It means restoring Ukraine’s control over the territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. It also means regaining control over Crimea.”

Andrzej Duda indicated that the sanctions imposed over the Russian aggression are “something natural and must remain in place” until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored. He added that Poland will always call on the EU and various international communities to stick to this.

Any forced shifting of borders after World War II in Europe is unacceptable, and the international community should never agree to this, the Polish president noted.
