PM Tusk-'Full Mobilisation' Of The West Needed To Help Ukraine


Returning Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk speaking in the Sejm (lower house of parliament) states that "We need to speak with one voice about Ukraine. [The] Attack on Ukraine is an attack on all of us. [Poland will] loudly and decisively demand the full mobilization of the free world, the Western world, to help Ukraine in this war ...I can no longer listen to politicians who talk about being tired." While Tusk has sought to portray his broad moderate gov't coalition as starkly different from the outgoing right-wing Law and Justice administration on areas such as rule-of-law and EU relations, vocal support for Ukraine in its defence against Russia is one policy that looks set to remain in place.

  • The Guardian lists some of the key Cabinet positions unveiled by Tusk: "Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, a member of [centre-right]Third Way, will be deputy prime minister and minister for defence. Krzysztof Gawkowski, a member of [left-wing] New Left, will be the second deputy prime minister and responsible for the ministry of digitalisation. Radosław Sikorski, also from Civic Platform, will be foreign minister – a role he held previously in 2007-2014. Andrzej Domański, from Civic Platform, will serve as finance minister."
  • Domański became a Civic Platform deputy in the October election. Prior to that he trained as an economist, lectured at universities, and for 14 years worked in financial services as an analyst and investment director. Domański also served as vice-president of the Civic Institute, the Civic Platform's associated think-tank.
