Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Poland to Ukraine Jan Pieklo held a reception on the occasion of the 99th anniversary of the Independence Day

National Independence Day  is a national day in Poland celebrated on 11 November to commemorate the anniversary of the restoration of Poland’s sovereignty as the Second Polish Republic in 1918 from the German, Austrian and Russian Empires. Following the partitions in the late 18th century, Poland ceased to exist for 123 years until the end of World War I, when the destruction of the neighbouring powers allowed the country to reemerge. It is a non-working day in Poland.
