Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda will meet German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin on Saturday to discuss sanctions on Russia, a Polish government spokesperson has said.

"At the initiative of Prime Minister Morawiecki, a meeting will be held in Berlin today. Prime Minister Morawiecki together with the President of Lithuania will hold talks with the German Chancellor," Piotr Mueller wrote on Twitter early on Saturday.

"The European Union must immediately adopt a package of ruthlessly harsh sanctions against Russia," the tweet added.

Later, Morawiecki wrote on Facebook that he would try to persuade the head of Germany's government to take urgent action against Russia.

"In a moment I will travel to Berlin for a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz," Morawiecki wrote. "I intend to persuade him to (take) urgent action to stop Russian aggression against Ukraine."

The prime minister added that "only quick, severe sanctions can bring us closer to this."

He went on to say that there were many arguments and that they would be discussed.

"We are all responsible for the credibility of the European Union, which is not only an economic community but also a community of values," he wrote. "We all answer before the court of history for our response to what is currently happening in Europe."

He said the EU could not support the act of a terrorist, even if he stood at the helm of a big country and that an armed attack on any European state must be met with a radical response. "All the more so if the aggressor doesn't understand any other language," he wrote.
