Speaker of the Polish upper house Senate Bogdan Borusewicz has called off a Poland-Russia Forum of Regions to be held in the northern Polish city of Gdansk on April 15-16 in view of "Russia's aggression against Ukraine," PAP Polish news agency reported on Wednesday.
The forum organized over the past five years together with the Council of the Russian Federation, has been the biggest meeting of Polish and Russian local self-government officials.
“Unfortunately, because of the present political situation linked with Russia's aggression against Ukraine the forum cannot be held," Borusewicz said.
