Poland is a unitary state and so it shall remain, said the Head of Government. He emphasised that Poland would not allow history to be falsified and would always defend the truth.

When speaking of the city’s history, the Prime Minister highlighted the accomplishment of Leon Barciszewski, who, as he said, was a symbol of the restoration of Bydgoszcz after the crisis and created numerous initiatives that have served the residents to this day.

The Prime Minister expressed his thanks for the invitation and added that the anniversary marked a symbolic completion of our return to independence. It was all complete in 1920, when Bydgoszcz once again became part of the Republic of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki concluded.
