Polish President Andrzej Duda told Ukrainian lawmakers Sunday that “the free world today has the face of Ukraine,” according to a Ukrainian lawmaker.
Roman Hryshchuk posted a photo of Duda addressing the room with lawmakers holding up a blue and yellow Ukrainian flag.
“Dear Ukrainians, your relatives – women, parents, children – who were forced to leave for Poland, are not refugees in our country. They are our guests, “Hryshchuk wrote on Twitter in English, quoting Duda.
Nearly 3.5 million Ukrainian refugees have entered Poland since the Russian occupation in February, making it by far the largest host country for people fleeing the country, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Duda also told Volodymyr Zelensky that “no one can disrupt our unity” during his speech, as he became the first foreign leader since the Russian occupation to address Ukraine’s parliament, the Rada, in Kiev. Duda’s office posted the message on Twitter.
