The 11th Session of the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, and the Seimas and the Senate of the Republic of Poland began in the Polish capital on Monday, 6 December.

During the meeting, Speaker of the Parliament of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk said that Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine shows “the Kremlin’s contempt for international law and fair demands of the civilised world.”

“In this context, I would like to express my gratitude for the decisive and unwavering position of Warsaw and Vilnius in the international arena in providing comprehensive support to Ukraine,” Stefanchuk said.

According to him, Ukraine expects that the Lublin Triangle countries will be able to combine efforts to consolidate the international community, taking into account the new elements of hybrid pressure from the Russian Federation and Belarus.

Stefanchuk also hopes that Poland and Lithuania will continue to support Ukraine’s path towards the EU and NATO and that the states will actively cooperate within the framework of newly created formats, such as the Lublin Triangle and the Crimea Platform.

It should be noted that on the eve of the meeting in Poland, a survey was conducted on behalf of Rzeczpospolita. According to sociologists, 61.9% of Poles support the provision of military assistance to Ukraine in case of an attack by Russia, 13% oppose it, and 25.1% are undecided.
