Poland criticizes Slovakia and Hungary before the Visegrad Summit


Poland intends to discuss the future of the Visegrad Group in the face of the “ambiguous” position of Slovakia and Hungary on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“There can be no room in NATO and the European Union for any doubt about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. If someone is a member of these organizations, then by definition they must support Ukraine. Those who do not understand this de facto place themselves outside our communities. There can be no ambiguity here,” said Prime Minister Donald Tusk about the talks in the Visegrad Group with the participation of Hungary and Slovakia.

“I’m going to Prague tomorrow to see if the Visegrad Group is able to support the initiatives of the European Union,” the Prime Minister said. “We achieved a lot when we were all Western empowerment advocates and Democrats many years ago,” he recalled.

“I will come back from this meeting and tell you whether the Visegrad Group still makes sense,” Prime Minister Donald Tusk said. He acknowledged that Slovakia and Hungary present an “ambiguous” position on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The group comprises the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary.
