Polish Ambassador to Ukraine Bartosz Cichocki confirmed the Polish Press Agency (PAP) reports that a Polish citizen had been wounded in the country after a bus carrying humanitarian aid had come under fire from Russians in the Donetsk region.
“I confirm that we have received information about a wounded citizen of the Republic. He is being given medical attention and care will be provided,” Cichocki pointed out, without revealing any other details.
The diplomat assured, however, that “thanks to the efforts of the Prime Minister’s Office, Poland, and Ukraine have worked out an efficient mechanism of information and cooperation in caring for the wounded.”
The politician also posted a photo of a white bus with a bullet hole behind where the driver usually sits. The car bears a sticker reading “Helping Ukraine” and the flags of Ukraine, Poland, and Latvia.
