Polen støtter Ukraine i håb om fødevaresikkerhed og fred

Hele verden kigger begivenheder udfolde sig i Ukraine-og her i Polen, vi betaler særligt opmærksomme. Ukraine er vores nabo. Vi deler en fælles grænse 535 km. Det adskiller ikke kun vores to nationer, men også markerer den østlige udkant af Den Europæiske Union. Fra min gård nord for Warszawa, Jeg ved, at […]
