The Polish embassy in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and a consulate in the western city of Lviv continue to work despite the Russian attack on Ukraine, the Polish foreign ministry has said.
The Polish sports minister has said that people in Russian sport should face “some sort of ostracism” following Moscow's decision to recognise Ukraine's two breakaway regions.
Poland has no plans to evacuate the families of its embassy staff in Kyiv, the deputy foreign minister has said, despite the US ordering relatives of its embassy staff to leave.
President Andrzej Duda has told a summit in Kyiv that Crimea belongs to Ukraine, and that countries must act together to reverse the effects of its "illegal annexation.”
With the threat from Soviet Russia very real, Józef Piłsudski’s bold excursion deep towards the east was part of his grand idea to create a military and political alliance, a buffer of independent countries allied with Poland, including Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine.
