Polish Consulates General will get back to work only after the Ukrainian side guarantees safety to the diplomatic institutions and its workers. Foreign Minister of Poland Witold Waszczykowski said this commenting on the recent attack on the consulate general in Lutsk and answering when the Polish consulates will resume working in Ukraine.

‘The consulates will open when we are sure they have full safety guarantees. It is the Ukrainian state that is responsible for safety for Polish consulates’, he said, adding that Poland, too, intends to boost the security of these institutions in Ukraine by sending extra guards.

According to Waszczykowski, it is too early to say what actually happened in Lutsk until the investigation is over.
