Future of Poland depends on assistance to Ukraine - Morawiecki

The future of Poland itself depends on how effective the assistance from Poland and other allies to Ukraine will be now.

According to Ukrinform, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told this to Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.

"We are helping Ukraine, because our future depends on our eastern neighbor. We are doing more than others because we have more to win and more to lose," he said.

At the same time, he recalled that just a few months ago, Ukraine received the status of a candidate country for joining the EU, and expressed support for its efforts on the way to full membership.

"Receiving candidate status [...] was a great success. But we cannot stop halfway. Ukraine is paying a huge and bloody price today for trying to free itself from the Russian boot. The events on the Maidan in Kyiv have put [the country] on the path to the EU, and the Ukrainians' vision of joining the EU motivates them to stay on this path, on this extremely difficult and dangerous road," Morawiecki said.

He said that Ukraine would not be able to defeat Russia without the solidarity of the West, including sanctions, financial, humanitarian and military assistance.

"It won't be easy to continue the enthusiasm currently present in European official halls. But the most important thing that we have to continue is European unity and determination in supporting the defenders of Ukraine. We woke up the West, so we cannot let it fall asleep again," Morawiecki said.
