President Zuzana Čaputová visited Poland, the last country on her Visegrad tour.

Čaputová and Polish President Andrzej Duda agreed that the unity of NATO is needed because current relationships with Russia are not improving. Čaputová also expressed regrets because she is convinced that “we need a constructive relationship with Russia,” the TASR newswire reported.
