He adds that he believes in the ability to pursue a good policy towards Ukraine together with the Polish government.

Duda also notes that the emergence of a new NATO state between Russia and Poland will strengthen the security of his country. He emphasizes that Ukraine needs strong support from the West, especially in terms of armaments.

"I had a meeting with the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, in Davos. We discussed our bilateral relations, particularly the cooperation on the track of Ukraine's European integration. We coordinated our positions ahead of the NATO Summit in Washington," says Zelenskyy.

He also adds that he discussed with the Polish President the situation on the battlefield and further defense support for Ukraine.

Relations between Poland and Ukraine

In mid-September, Poland unilaterally decided to impose a ban on the import of Ukrainian grain, a measure that was later lifted by the European Commission.

Against the background of such a decision, relations between Poland and Ukraine worsened.

Later, Polish carriers decided to block the border with Ukraine. They significantly complicated the movement of trucks, affecting Ukrainian imports and exports.

Commenting on these measures, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine lost hundreds of millions of dollars and part of the harvest.
