Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said this during his visit to Brussels, Ukrinform reports, referring to RMF24.
"We already know from the media from the previous few days that there was a positive reaction from Denmark and Lithuania. Today I can say that other member states have expressed their approval, but they also expect some support and a common voice from NATO," he said.
According to Morawiecki, there were representatives of countries at the European Council who are skeptical about the prospect of introducing peacekeepers in Ukraine. He advised them to imagine that "all of Ukraine is becoming Mariupol, a bombed-out place where people are running away."
Morawiecki also called the actions of Putin and Russian soldiers barbaric. He stressed that this allows "presenting the worst-case scenarios, so the presentation of this concept is finding more fertile ground." He added that otherwise, EU member states will have to receive "tens of millions of refugees."
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of an all-out invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying infrastructure, residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced.
