On the second anniversary of the start of the war in Ukraine, President Andrzej Duda set out his country's ongoing support for Kiev's struggle for freedom

"Two years ago to date, in the evening of 23 February, I was leaving Kyiv. I was there to support Ukraine," the Polish head of state said in a video posted on X (formerly Twitter).

"Nothing has changed in this respect. Poland supported, is supporting and will continue to support the fight for Ukraine’s freedom," Duda said.

Duda is among the political leaders issuing statements of support for Ukraine on the second anniversary of Russia's invasion.

Russia's decade-long aggression towards Ukraine began with the annexation of Crimea in 2014, escalating into a protracted conflict in the eastern regions of the country. On February 24, 2022, Moscow initiated a full-scale invasion against Ukraine.
