The Ukrainian Embassy in Poland is holding talks with the Polish government on the complete closure of Poland's border with Belarus, even if such a decision is not taken at the EU level.

That's according to Ukraine's Ambassador to Poland Andrii Deshchytsia, Ukrinform reports.

"We are holding talks with the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure, with the Polish government, in order to completely close the border between Poland and Belarus - even if the decision is not taken at the level of the European Union," he said.

Deschytsia also said that Ukrainian diplomats were holding talks with Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

"We also appealed to these countries so that they simultaneously close their borders with Belarus and Russia. I think that if such a decision is made, it will not be necessary to wait for the decision of the European Union - we will completely block any supplies to Russia," the ambassador stressed.

On March 25, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine sent a letter to the European Commission with a proposal to completely block transport services with Russia and Belarus.
