Andrzej Duda’s trip to Ukraine was revealed by his office in the early hours of Sunday, Polish state news agency PAP reported.
Meeting with Zelensky, speech to lawmakers
Jakub Kumoch, the top foreign-policy aide to the Polish president, said that Duda would meet the Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky and deliver an address to Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada.
“The Polish president will be the first foreign head of state to be honoured in this way since the beginning of Russia’s war on Ukraine,” the official told PAP.
He added that in his speech, Duda would “pay tribute to those who, by fighting to defend Ukraine, are fighting to defend Europe.”
Last month, Duda visited Ukraine alongside his counterparts from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, meeting Zelensky in Kyiv and visiting nearby towns that witnessed Russian atrocities: Bucha, Borodyanka and Irpen.
Sunday is day 88 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
