Quote: "It is necessary to finally find a solution to the situation on the Polish border, which has long gone beyond [any limits of] both economics and morality.


It is impossible to explain how the difficulties that a bleeding country is going through can be used in a domestic political struggle. But we will overcome this.

I am confident that Ukraine is able to withstand [the pressure], achieve its goals and defeat Russian terror. Together we can ensure this."
