O Polish Prime Minister addressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this Friday and asked him not to “insult” the Poles, maintaining harsh rhetoric towards Kyiv.
“I want to tell President Zelensky not to insult the Poles again, as he did recently during his speech at the UN”said Mateusz Morawiecki, at an election rally, cited by Reuters.
The statements come after the Ukrainian head of state angered Poland when he said, at the United Nations General Assembly, in New York, United States, that Kyiv was working to preserve land routes for cereal exports, but that the “political theater” around grain imports was only helping Moscow.
Hours after Zelensky’s words, Mateusz Morawiecki also revealed that the country stopped supplying weapons to Kyiv, to focus on its own weapons and published a video on his social networks in which he recalled that his country “was the first to do a lot for Ukraine” and therefore hopes that its interests are understood and promises to defend them “with all determination”.
It is recalled that Poland decided last week to extend the import ban on Ukrainian cereals, shaking Kyiv’s relations with the country, which has been seen as one of its staunchest allies since Russia invaded Ukraine in February. last year.
Poland, which holds legislative elections on October 15, has been the target of criticism from the far right due to what it considers to be the government’s subservient attitude towards Ukraine.
