The Polish official added that the development of the situation in Belarus and the support for civil society will be the topic of consultations at the next meeting of the Lublin Triangle - representatives of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania.

The video conference was also attended by deputy foreign ministers of Ukraine and Poland Vasyl Bodnar and Marcin Przydacz, adviser to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Volodymyr Khandohiy, director of Poland’s Centre for Eastern Studies Adam Eberhardt, as well as representatives of Belarusian opposition Pavel Latushka and Vladislav Kobets.
