TVN24PM Morawiecki says it's hard for Poland to engage in a dialogue with Russia

Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday (June 24) in Brussels it is hard for Poland to "undertake dialogue at highest levels" with Russia, "since a formal proposal has not been made, yet".

France and Germany called on for a European Union summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin but met firm resistance from Poland and Baltic countries who distrust the Kremlin.

Morawiecki mentioned the latest cyber attack against high-profile Polish e-mail accounts as an example of "aggressive behaviour" from Russia.

"The situation is crystal clear to us. In a situation when we see aggressive behaviour, we see hybrid attacks on our neighbours, on ourselves, I am talking about the latest attack, a cyber attack on our security it is hard to undertake dialogue at the highest levels as proposed by some countries, or rather signalled by them, since a formal proposal has not been made, yet" - Morawiecki said on Thursday.

A far-reaching cyber attack in Poland in June hit over 100 email accounts used by current and former government officials, Polish counter-intelligence said, adding evidence showed links between the hackers and Russia's secret services.

Morawiecki called for EU solidarity on the Russian topic to take into account European Union's security and the Eastern flank.

"We point to the fact that EU solidarity requires an understanding of the interests, in particular security interests of the European Union, the whole Eastern flank of the European Union, Eastern flank of NATO and one cannot play around with these values and rules because international security is an overarching value" - Poland's PM said.

"We, together with our Baltic friends, Romania and other states, take care of that EU unity" - he added.
