Selenskyj with speech: thanks to Ursula von der Leyen, warning to Poland and Hungary

In the daily video message Ukrainian President Volodymyr Selenskyj made clear statements.

Speaking to EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen, the Ukrainian president expressed gratitude for the end of trade restrictions. “Europe always wins when treaties work and promises are kept,” Selenskyj said.

His statements towards Poland, Hungary and Slovakia are quite different, but he did not mention them by name. Selenskyj announced countermeasures should the countries block the export of Ukrainian grain. Such behavior is not in the spirit of good neighborliness in view of the Russian naval blockade, criticized the President of Ukraine.

Furthermore, it turned out that Volodymyr Selenskyj will meet the US President Joe Biden in the White House next Thursday. This was announced by the US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. “It will be the third meeting between the two and it comes at a critical time,” Sullivan said. New aid to Ukraine is to be announced next week. Currently, Biden is advocating for more than $20 billion (about 18.6 billion euros) in additional aid for military, economic and humanitarian purposes.
