President of Poland (1995-2005), Honorary President of the Monaco Energy Security Forum

Energy is a key factor today and will be a key factor tomorrow. Of course, in different conditions and in a different environment.

I will say something about it, but this discussion, this exchange of opinions is extremely important and I think can change also our understanding of the situation and our strategy of what to do, especially if we are involved very much in energy policy or in this sector. I would like to say also that Burisma, for me — and that is why I am inside Burisma —Burisma’s activities are an example of the best that we can offer Ukraine today. The main problem of Ukraine as a state is its sovereignty, its independence. This nation has a long history that is more than a thousand years.’
