Polish President Andrzej Duda pushed back against "worrying voices" who believe that Ukraine should agree to territorial concessions in order to end the war during an address to the Ukrainian parliament Sunday, Reuters reported.

Why it matters: Duda's speech, which earned a standing ovation, is the first in-person address to the Ukrainian parliament by a foreign leader since the start of the invasion, per Politico.

What they're saying: "Only Ukraine has the right to decide about its future," Duda said.

The big picture: Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak ruled out the possibility of a ceasefire or territorial concessions during an interview with Reuters on Saturday, arguing that such a move would only embolden Russia.
