Car from Polish Prime Minister's motorcade caused accident in Ukraine in July - media
On 7 July this year, one of the cars accompanying Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki caused an accident in the Ternopil region. People were injured in the accident
This was reported by Wirtualna Polska.
It is known that the accident occurred in July this year, when Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki came to Ukraine to honour the memory of the victims of the Volyn tragedy. Driving on a motorway near Ternopil, one of the convoy's vehicles caused an accident.
It is said that the car, which belonged to diplomats of the Polish Embassy in Kyiv, collided with a Ukrainian car standing on the roadside. As a result, the car overturned into a ditch, and the driver fell out of the window.
On that day, the injured man was transported to a hospital in Ternopil, but diplomats of the embassy insisted on treatment in Poland. It is noted that 42-year-old Oleh Lishchuk was taken to Poland for treatment, but he received support from the Polish state only in the first days. He underwent surgery and his wife received a paid hotel room. Then the independent U-Work Foundation helped the man with obtaining a PESEL number and paying for rehabilitation.
However, today, on 9 October, the Polish Embassy in Ukraine responded to this information. They stated that the driver who caused the accident was not in Prime Minister Morawiecki's convoy. It belonged to the defence attaché, whose employee most likely fainted while driving.
Earlier, the Polish prime minister visited the non-existent village of Ostrowki in Volyn. He paid tribute to the victims of the Volyn tragedy.
