Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki harshly criticized Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during his speech to the UN General Assembly.
The occasion was the grain deal and Zelensky’s words to the UN that he was disturbed by the “political theater” surrounding grain imports, which is being played out between the allies, from which, according to him, Moscow benefits.
“I want to tell President Zelenski that he must never again insult the Poles, as he did the other day when he attended the United Nations,” Morawiecki was quoted as saying last night by Polish news agency PAP.
Poland, Slovakia and Hungary have decided to disregard the EC’s decision to allow Ukrainian imports and impose their own restrictive measures, arguing that they need to protect their farmers from competition from significantly increased imports from Ukraine.
“Europe’s primary task should be to arm Ukraine, and it should help by transporting arms. The logistics distribution center Rzeszów in south-eastern Poland is operating and will continue to operate in cooperation with allies,” added Morawiecki.
