The immediate cause for the organization of this meeting is the 80th anniversary of General Władysław Sikorski’s trip to the USSR. The intentions of the Polish prime minister and commander-in-chief were to facilitate the settlement of disputes between Poland and the USSR in the future and to maintain the cooperation in the war with Germany, established after the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The discussion will be attended by eminent experts on the subject from the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia and Slovakia.

The conference program can be found here.

The event will be held on 30 November 2021 between 9:00 and 17:00 in Laboratorium, Zamek Ujazdowski (Warsaw, Poland).
