Sławek Szefs reports that the Polish side is ready to defend its stand and actions.

"We welcome the opportunity to be able to supply evidence in the form of data, stock-taking and catalogue materials describing what can be seen on the spot, what changes are taking place in the forest and what adverse effects they have caused,” said Andrzej Konieczny, deputy environment minister and government plenipotentiary for the Białowieża Forest.
