Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has escalated his rhetoric with the Ukrainian president over the two countries’ ongoing spat over grain exports, telling Volodymyr Zelensky never to “insult Poles again” after the latter suggested his neighbor was postering over disputes on grain exports.
The Polish leader hit out at Zelensky after the Ukrainian leader made snide remarks at Poland at the United Nations’ general assembly this week, saying the dispute was “political theater” and that “some of our friends in Europe” have “made a thriller from the grain”.
On Friday, at a rally in Swidnik, Poland, Morawiecki took the bait. “I want to tell President Zelensky never to insult Poles again, as he did recently during his speech at the UN,” he said.
“The Polish people will never allow this to happen, and defending the good name of Poland is not only my duty and honor, but also the most important task of the Polish government,” the Polish prime minister added.
