„We, the citizens of a free and uniting Europe, solidary in our love of freedom and other common values which unite the national representatives gathered in Warsaw on June 4, 2014, on the 25th anniversary of the electoral victory of the Polish Solidarity Union which sparked off major system changes in the countries of Central-East Europe (…) express the belief that freedom and solidarity constitute the fundamental values that should underlie human relations”, the Declaration read.

In the document its authors condemn all violence, hatred and discrimination, especially the recent annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula by Russia, which in their opinion „violates the fundaments of the European legal order and undermines the functioning of the entire international system”.

The declaration authors stress that an effective means of achieving peace are good-neighbourly relations between peoples and states „in respect of international law and the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of states”. (PAP)
