Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has issued a warning to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy against forming a close alliance with Germany.
The warning was made during a congress of the Law and Justice party in Katowice. Morawiecki stated that Poland would "protect Polish agriculture from Ukrainian agro-oligarchs" and criticized Zelenskyy for his recent "very inappropriate words" at the United Nations.
According to Polish Press Agency, Morawiecki emphasized that it was Poland that had hosted several million Ukrainians and had been the most helpful when Germany considered sending 5,000 helmets to besieged Kyiv.
He added that Germany would always aim to connect with Russia through the heads of Central European countries.
Poland is currently in the middle of an election campaign, and anti-German rhetoric is frequently used by the current government.
Relations between Ukraine and Poland are strained due to trade disputes, and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba believes a resolution to the crisis is inevitable.
