Kyiv's Mariinsky Palace hosted the official ceremony of meeting between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda. Press department of the President's Office reported that on Monday.
The ceremony took place on the square in front of the Palace, where presidents met members of delegations from respective countries.
The two leaders are supposed to sign a number of bilateral deals concerning naval and trade infrastructure development in Ukraine. They also participated in the business forum focused on the development of Odesa seaport infrastructure.
Earlier, Duda paid tribute to Polish prisoners killed during WWII in Bykivnia settlement, near Kyiv. Currently, it is a memorial site commonly referred to as Bykivnia Graves. As there are thousands of Poles tortured and killed by the Soviets buried in that ground, he came to honor their memory.
"Truth and justice have to last. Today, we pay tribute to 3435 Polish prisoners from Ukrainian "Katyn List" who were tortured by the NKVD 80 years ago; they died for free and sovereign Poland", the Polish leader wrote on his Twitter page.
Previously, he wrote that Ukraine-Poland ties remained quite formidable, and both sides worked hard to extend these bounds even more.
