During the conference, Morawiecki also referred to the issue of security, i.e. border protection and resource independence. “Austria, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Poland saw the need to defend our external borders in the same way. And we were right – the borders should be protected. It should depend on us who we accept and who we don’t. The Prime Minister emphasized this position even today.” “Today we must also realize that a new geopolitical order is being formed in the world outside our eastern borders, in Ukraine,” he added.
“In the past five years, we have built the Baltic gas pipeline to Norway, and within six months we will be independent for the first time in decades from Russian gas,” Morawiecki noted. “The consistent actions of our government have led to such a possibility,” the prime minister added. “We want peaceful and democratic cooperation with Russia, but we cannot agree that Ukraine’s sovereignty will be destroyed in such a cruel way,” he said.
He also briefed the Prime Minister on activities that would bring hope for the future to Ukraine. “Ukraine is fighting today for freedom, democracy, sovereignty and tolerance. Are these not the main European values? These are the basic European values, Ukraine is fighting for these values” – said Moraviki. “We support European ambitions and Ukraine’s accession to the European Union,” he stressed. “This is the main hope,” he added. However, he made a reservation that it was “practical”.
“Today we must also give hope to a new Marshall Plan for a sovereign Ukraine after the war, which may end as soon as possible. The EU member states want to participate in rapid reconstruction, and we want to give Ukraine hope for the rapid reconstruction of an independent Ukrainian state.”
