Letter from Secretary of State Andrzej Dera
Unfortunately, the pandemic situation in Europe, as well as political complications related to the current crisis around Ukraine, did not allow the President to present an award to prof. A. Sładkowski, as well as other honored figures of science, education, art, industry and other branches of public life earlier. At present, the President, performing important duties, being on a visit to Egypt, could not personally present the awards. This honorable duty was entrusted to the Chief of the Cabinet of the President of Poland Paweł Szrot. On May 30, 2022, all those previously awarded were invited to the Presidential Palace in Warsaw, where state awards were presented to them in a solemn atmosphere.
