Poland advocates respect for the international law and does not recognize the annexation of the Crimea.
A corresponding statement was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country Jacek Czaputowicz.

According to him, Poland and Russia have opposing views on a number of issues, in particular, compliance with international law, Crimea's attachment and Russia's actions in the Donbas.

The diplomat further noted that he opposed the aggression of the Russian Federation in the east of Ukraine.

Earlier, Czaputowicz said that the main goal of Poland's participation in the UN Security Council is pressure on compliance with international law with respect to Ukraine. He went on saying that Poland would seek, to a greater extent than before, to help resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

On January 9, as a result of the rotation in the Polish government, Jacek Czaputowicz became the new Minister of Foreign Affairs.
