The region is “affected by an ongoing Russian aggression,” the Polish foreign ministry said on its website.

The joint visit in the Ukrainian city was expected to “reiterate Poland’s commitment to strengthening Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” the foreign ministry’s website added.

Czaputowicz was to be joined in Mariupol by his Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Czech and Ukrainian counterparts.

The foreign ministers were set to meet the Mariupol city authorities and observers from an OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.

The foreign ministry in Warsaw added that Czaputowicz’s visit to Mariupol “falls several weeks after the November incident with the Russian fleet at the Kerch Strait in the Black Sea, which resulted in the seizure of Ukrainian vessels.”
