• Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland



  • The Polish Card has already been issued to around 100,000 Belarusian citizens. This constitutes about half of all Polish Cards issued to our compatriots residing all over the world, the Polish ambassador to Belarus, Konrad Pawlik, told Euroradio in an interview.


    For Warsaw, the Polish Card is primarily a "moral compensation" for everyone who faced hardship living in the former USSR only because they felt Polish and spoke openly about their roots, the ambassador said.


    He added that Poland issues around 400,000 Schengen visas per year to Belarusian citizens. He pointed out that this is more than any other state. 


    Referring to the forthcoming Belarus-Russia military exercises, Zapad 2017, Konrad Pawlik said he hoped that they would be open to foreign observers.


    Speaking about the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, he stressed that for Poland the most important issue was the safety of the plant. He assured that the Polish government does not want to politicize the issue.
