Polish PM calls to “put an end to the tragedy” in Ukraine on Kyiv visit

Krakow, Mar 15 (EFE).- Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki called on Tuesday to “put an end to the tragedy” in Ukraine during a visit to Kyiv since Russia launched a full-scale invasion last month.

“We must stop this tragedy, this war is the result of the actions of a cruel tyrant who attacks civilians, shells cities and hospitals in Ukraine,” Morawiecki wrote on his Facebook account, referring to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The three prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia traveled to Kyiv by train earlier Tuesday to meet with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a symbolic trip to show European solidarity with Ukraine.

The leaders are expected to present Ukraine with a “comprehensive aid package” and show “unequivocal support of the entire EU for Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence”, according to Polish government spokesperson Piort Müller.

The trip comes as Kyiv is under siege by Russian troops, which are continuing its attack on the capital.

Polish foreign minister, Zbigniew Rau, assured the trip had been “carefully prepared” and had the support of Brussels. EFE
