Kondratiuk said that the Verkhovna Rada is ready to accept the task. 

"We are ready to actively engage in dialogue with the Sejm and Senate of Poland in the format of the Ukraine-Poland Parliamentary Assembly, as well as at the level of relevant committees," she noted. 

Kondratiuk is convinced that only open, constructive, and professional dialogue will allow for understanding and mutually beneficial solutions. 

"Protracting this situation is not beneficial for either Ukraine or Poland. Only Russia benefits from this. Together, we must thwart the Kremlin's plans to escalate this situation into a conflict between our friendly nations," Kondratiuk emphasised.

Background: 

  • The government of Poland has appealed to the executive authority of the European Union, requesting assistance in resolving the issue of Ukrainian grain deliveries. They propose the introduction of regional quotas for certain Ukrainian goods.
