The conversation between Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and President Petro Poroshenko on 17 February in Munich was an opportunity to exchange views on the security situation in Donbass and on energy security of the region in view of the construction of Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Prime Minister Morawiecki opposed attempts of the Ukrainian authorities at introducing an unjustifiable ban on searching, exhumation and dignified burial of Polish victims of conflicts and repressions. This ban together with the failure on part of the Ukrainian authorities to fulfil their obligations in this regard deeply affect bilateral relations between the two countries. The Polish Prime Minister noted that the President signed into law the Act on the Institute of National Remembrance and then referred it to the Constitutional Tribunal.

This Act is directed at lies, and not at the Polish-Ukrainian relations, emphasised Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
