Providence editor Marc LiVecche, McDonald Scholar of Ethics, War, and Public Life, spoke with the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York City Adrian Kubicki about US President Joe Biden’s visit to Ukraine and Poland. Their conversation reflects on how Poland’s geography and history has shaped Polish national identity, political ideas, and their sense of responsibility for the security of Europe, the welfare of Ukraine, and US-Polish relations. They reflect on Poland’s leadership throughout the Ukrainian refugee crisis, on Poland’s support for supplying Ukraine with advanced weaponry, and on the suggestion that the center of gravity in the NATO coalition has shifted toward central republics of “New Europe,” among much else. Cieszyć się!
