Quote from Zvarych: "This is a question for the Polish side, because Poland was one of the first to receive an invitation to the event. 

This is a sovereign decision of each country. We send an invitation, and a country decides whether to accept it or not based on its interests. So we respect such decisions, but this is not a reason to blame Ukraine for Poland's absence."
