Poland's first lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, paid a visit to the joint Lithuanian-Polish-Ukrainian Brigade in the eastern city of Lublin on Wednesday.

The first lady thanked the troops in her own name and on behalf of her husband, Andrzej Duda, for their work with Ukrainian war refugees and extended Easter greetings to soldiers, police officers, Border Guards, fire fighters and volunteer fire fighters as well as to NGOs and volunteers.

"My husband asked me to pass on his sincere greetings, thanks for your daily service, and above all asked me to pass on expressions of the highest respect and recognition for your actions and engagement in this difficult time for us all," Kornhauser-Duda said, as quoted in a President's Office release.

She expressed gratitude for the exceptional attitude Poles have shown since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, saying she was proud of her compatriots for the way they had helped Ukrainians. She also firmly condemned Russia's aggression against Ukraine, saying that "like every wife, every mother, every woman," she could not agree with unlawful acts of terror.

Also participating in the meeting were officials of the three countries as well as the United States and Great Britain and Poland’s Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak.
