“We must demand return to geopolitical relations the way they had been before annexation of Crimea. This means, that Russia must leave Crimea”, - stated President of Poland Andrzej Duda during his visit to Washington, informed Polskie Radio.

During his meeting with journalists in the National press club, Duda focused mainly on reinforcement of NATO and Russian aggression in Ukraine. “For the first time since World War II, European borders have been changed by force”, - Duda pointed out.

We want soldiers of the Alliance to be permanently located in Central and Eastern Europe”, - Duda stated.
