“Return” keyword

Before Tusk’s arrival in Brussels, TVN24 correspondent Maciej Sokołowski reported that in (here – editor’s note) comments one word always appears – Donald Tusk’s “return” to the European Council, Poland’s return to the group of democratic countries, Poland’s return to democracy.

Sokołowski also said that the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, was already happy that Tusk would appear at the EU summit because the summit “is expected to be exceptionally difficult.”

– There are many points of contention and divisions between European Union countries and someone with extensive experience, someone who knows the leaders, and someone famous for his ability to communicate will be useful – said Sokołowski.
