PM Morawiecki convening emergency meeting of Visegrad Group due to Russian aggression

Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki is convening an emergency meeting with the participation of the prime ministers of the Visegrad Group countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary) due to Russia's aggressive actions.

First Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Szymon Szynkowski vel Sęk wrote about this on Twitter.

"As part of the Polish Presidency of the Visegrad Group, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki is convening an emergency meeting in the format of a video conference with the participation of the Prime Ministers of the Visegrad Group countries at 13:00 (Kyiv time) today. The meeting will focus on Russian acts of sabotage in the Czech Republic, Russia's escalation of the situation in Ukraine and Belarus, and cooperation of the Visegrad Group in strengthening security in the region," the post reads.

As reported, a diplomatic war between Russia and Western countries has been going on in recent weeks. In particular, the United State, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia expelled Russian diplomats for actions that contradict their diplomatic status. Russia gave a mirror-like response, declaring diplomats from these countries persona non grata.

On April 22, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered the General Staff of the Russian Federation and commanders to withdraw troops, which have recently been moved to Ukraine's borders, to their permanent bases.
