Duda about relations with Russia: We should try to create a dialogue at a low level. But we must demand respect for international law
Russia must respect international law and cease its aggression against Ukraine, said pa resident of Poland Andrzej Duda during a debate at the world economic forum in Davos, which was broadcast on the forum website.
“What is my message? Leave Ukraine alone,” he said.
Duda added that relations with Russia should “try to balance, as it is our neighbour”.
“Therefore, we should try to create a dialogue at a low level. But we must demand respect for international law. It is also a respect for boundaries. Not only in Europe, all over the world. We have very bad examples over the last ten years: Georgia and Ukraine”, – said the President of Poland.
In March 2014 Russia annexed the Ukrainian Crimea. In April in the East of Ukraine began the armed conflict. Fighting underway between the Armed forces of Ukraine and Pro-Russian rebels who control part of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
