"Ladies and gentlemen, though Ukraine and Poland are not among the final winners, it is a fact that both our countries have won. We are the organizers of the championship. WE wanted this championship to become a demonstration of our cooperation. And we've made it. The world has seen that Ukraine and Poland can cooperate. I want to express my sincere thanks and congratulations. I want to express special thanks to co-organizers and border services," Komorowski said.
