22.12.2018. The President of Poland Appointed a New Ambassador to Ukraine

President of Poland appointed Bartosz Cichocki as a new Ambassador to Ukraine. The former Ambassador Jan Pieklo made great efforts to strengthen the Ukrainian-Polish relations, but according to Warsaw, he was not tough enough about the historical politics of Kyiv. Bartosz Cichocki, who will be the Republic of Poland's new Ambassador to Ukraine, previously had served as Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland. He is a supporter of rapprochement with Ukraine, but there is a high probability that his interpretation of the Ukrainian-Polish past history will lead to worsening of bilateral relations.
