According to Tusk, the meeting will take place on Monday, January 15, at 11:00 local time (12:00 Kyiv time).

"I will go to the president to discuss, among other things, the nature of my mission - I will be in Kyiv in the coming days," says the prime minister.

Tusk has mentioned that the situation in Ukraine and on the front line is a top priority for Polish security for both him and the president.

Tusk's invitation to Ukraine
On December 13, it became known that the new Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk, was invited to visit Ukraine.

The next day, Tusk spoke with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy over the phone. At that time, the Prime Minister was officially invited to Kyiv.

As reported by Polish media, the visit is necessary to initiate a reboot between the countries. Relations had become tense after the blockade of the border with Ukraine by Polish carriers and the ban on the import of Ukrainian grain imposed by Warsaw.
