Poland’s Border Guard said that the country received 4,265,000 refugees from Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24.
On Wednesday, “Radio Poland” mentioned that the country received Tuesday 26,300 refugees from Ukraine, compared to 23,800 others the day before, while more than 2.29 million refugees returned to Ukraine.
Poland had passed last March a bill that provides a large-scale support package for Ukrainian refugees fleeing their country, according to which they are granted legal residence in Poland, and guarantees them the right to access education, health care, and social services.
It is noteworthy that since the beginning of Moscow’s special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, Western countries, led by the US, have sent billions of dollars in weapons and ammunition to support the Ukrainian forces against the Russian army, in a move that Moscow considered aimed at inflaming and prolonging the conflict.
Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that Moscow does not plan to occupy Ukrainian territory and that the goal of the operation is to protect people who, for eight years, have been subjected to persecution and genocide by the Kyiv regime.
