Today’s Europe is threatened by four biggest problems. They are demographic crisis, eurozone crisis, immigration crisis and the risk of marginalization of the war in Ukraine and the Russian aggression against Ukraine. This was stated by the President of Poland Andrzej Duda during the opening of XXV Economic Forum in Krynica, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Polskie Radio.
According to the president of Poland, the Minsk agreements signed in February this year had a positive impact on the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis, but have not bring lasting peace.
“The conflict in Ukraine must end with a lasting peace, but not freezing. A lasting peace must mean a return to the internationally recognized borders,” said Andrzej Duda.
The Polish leader once again expressed the desire of Poland to participate in resolving the situation in the Donbas more actively. Duda said that the Minsk agreement were not met in full and would unlikely be. So now it is high time to think what Europe has to offer Kyiv after December 31, when the Minsk-2 agreements expire.
During his speech, the president emphasized that good future of Europe needs unity and partnership between the EU member states, while selfhood of individual states can erase this future. As an example of such selfhood, Duda povided the behavior of Germany, which has recently renewed efforts concerning signing of the agreement with Moscow on the construction of the pipeline Nordstream-2, bypassing Poland.
