The Polish President Andrzej Duda and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky devoted their telephone conversation to a wide range of issues - from the launch of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline to the trips of Ukrainians to Poland, the press service of the Ukrainian president reports.

During the dialogue, in particular, the following topics were raised:

  • the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border. Zelensky shared with Duda information about the measures taken by Ukraine to protect its border with Belarus;
  • coordination of the positions of Kyiv and Warsaw on counteraction to the Nord Stream 2 project. Presidents of the two countries are unanimous in their assessments of the Russian gas pipeline, primarily as security threats, and are determined to further oppose the project;
  • promising projects of cooperation in the energy sector, in particular, on the establishment of alternative ways of gas supply;
  • the security situation in the east of the Ukrainian state;
  • freedom of movement in the current difficult epidemic conditions. Zelensky expressed confidence that Poland would not impose additional restrictions on entry for Ukrainians;
  • increasing the quota of permits for Ukrainian road carriers.

The leaders of the two countries agreed to exchange visits and hold events dedicated to the significant anniversaries of Ukrainian-Polish relations - the 30th anniversary of Poland's recognition of Ukraine's independence, establishment of diplomatic relations and signing of the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation.

As it was reported earlier, Duda and Zelensky last met at the Crimean Platform summit in Kyiv on August 23. At that time, Poland promised to raise the issue of restoring Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty during its forthcoming chairmanship in the OSCE.

During Zelensky’s visit to Warsaw on May 3, the joint declaration on support for Kyiv's European aspirations was signed by the Polish President Andrzej Duda.
