We must have a strong army ready to defend Poland at any time, said President Andrzej Duda when assuming the post of the supreme commander of the armed forces. The post is always held by the president of the day.
President Andrzej Duda received the orders of the White Eagle and of Polonia Restituta in a ceremony held at the Royal Castle in Warsaw on Thursday. Each new president automatically is decorated with the two orders and becomes the head of their chapters.
A repair of Poland is possible and I will do everything possible to achieve all that what I have promised, President Andrzej Duda said addressing people gathered outside the Presidential Palace on Thursday afternoon.
On many occasions world-wide have Polish military proved their bravery, their heroism, their patriotism, their ability to fight for ‘your freedom and for ours’ - said president Andrzej Duda at the Józef Piłsudski Square
