Poland to commemorate anniversary of WW2 start: Zelensky invited, Putin snubbed

Zelensky will take part in memorial events in Warsaw, Sep 1, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 2.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will pay an official two-day visit to Poland at the invitation of President Andrzej Duda.

The Ukrainian President’s Office told UNIAN Zelensky on the first day of the visit, Aug 31, would hold a meeting with Duda, as well as Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Senate Marshal Stanisław Karczewski, and business CEOs.

In addition, the head of the Ukrainian state in Warsaw will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. On Sep 1, the President of Ukraine will take part in memorial events in Warsaw on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 2 and hold a series of meetings with leaders of foreign states, who will also take part in the events.

In particular, Zelensky will hold bilateral meetings with President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda, President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev, President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili, and President of Montenegro Milo Djukanovic.

On, Sep 1, the world marks 80 years since the start of World War 2. On the first day of the fall of 1939, Nazi Germany attacked Poland, thus unleashing the bloodiest conflict in the history of mankind.

To mark 80 years since that tragic event, Warsaw has planned a series of events, having invited nearly 40 heads of state, government, and heads of international organizations and blocs.

Among them is German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. At the same time, Polish authorities snubbed Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, the country which declared itself the successor of the USSR. The move came against the background of Russia’s ongoing aggression against Ukraine.

  1. “Polish authorities snubbed Vladimir Putin, President of Russia”

    Now we know why Putin decided to cause all this BS about a prisoner exchange, that I doubt will happen. He wanted to deflect attention away from the fact that the terrorist state was not invited. Not that Russia can complain, according to their history WW2 started in 1941, so why would Russia be invited anyway. Plus Poland still remember being “liberated” by the USSR.

    • I’m sure the Poles have not forgotten Smolensk either. In fact the investigation is ongoing. From wiki:
      ‘On 25 November 2015, government spokeswoman Elżbieta Witek called for former Prime Minister Donald Tusk to be put on trial for his handling of the 2010 air disaster. Adam Lipiński, from the Prime Minister’s Chancellery, accused Tusk of negligence and weakness in handling the investigation and the restitution of the wreckage. Deputy Minister of Culture Jarosław Sellin stated his absolute conviction that there were explosions on board the Tupolev and that the real causes of the presidential plane crash has not yet been established.’
      Tusk has emerged as a closet putlerite since then and has revealed a hitherto unknown anti-Britain hatred, which seems to be an essential requirement for anyone in the leadership of the EU.,

      • I would say Russia know exactly what happened to the plane, that’s why they have kept it for 10 years. The most disgusting thing about this whole episode, was Russians stealing credit cards from the bodies of the deceased, and using them to withdraw money.

        • I did not know that. Fucking scum, like those filthy ghouls that looted the bodies of the M17 victims. And Trumpkov still wants to be friends with these degenerates?
