He also pointed out that Poland is a consistent supporter of the introduction of the EU visa-free regime for Ukrainians.
"We, in Poland, have always emphasized that we need open the border and introduce the visa-free regime with Ukraine. We know very well that there are no threats. It’s a benefit for both the European and Ukrainian sides," Henryk Litwin said.
