After being questioned about "Partygate," Boris Johnson is no longer in significant political peril.March 22, 2023
Prince William made a rare, unannounced trip to Poland on Wednesday, meeting British and Polish troops stationed near the Ukrainian-Polish border and praising their "cooperation in support of the people of Ukraine and their freedom." He first visited the 3rd Brigade Territorial Defense Force base in Rzeszów, where he met Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak and viewed a display of military equipment. He then met members of the British Armed Forces to learn more about how they have been collaborating with their Polish counterparts delivering operations in support of Ukraine. William said it was "fantastic" to be back in Poland and thanked the Polish and British troops working in close and crucial partnership. He also paid tribute to the inspiring humanity of the Polish people. William visited an accommodation center in Warsaw to see the humanitarian response to Ukrainians fleeing the war.
The facility is providing lodgings for 300 women and children who have recently arrived in the country and are not yet integrated into local communities. The royal was met by the city's mayor and spoke with some of the displaced Ukrainians living at the center, learning more about how they came to move to Poland. More than 8 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries since the start of the war, and at least 1.5 million Ukrainian refugees remain in Poland.
