An increase in the number of refugees arriving from Ukraine is again recorded


Poland .

This was stated by Polish President Andrzej Duda following a meeting with German leader Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Polish media reports.

According to him, in order to continue to support Ukrainians who are forced to leave their homes due to the aggression of the Russian Federation, the country will ask for financial assistance from the European Union.

"I told the president that I think we should ask the European Community, the European Commission for special financial support intended for our countries, which bear a special burden in connection with the reception of refugees fleeing the Russian invasion," Andrzej Duda said. .

The Polish leader pointed out that the current Russian tactic is to destroy critical infrastructure in Ukraine, thereby depriving Ukrainians of the ability to heat their homes and deprive them of electricity.

As he explained, this leads to an increase in the number of people fleeing from "frost, death and Russian missiles."

"The number of refugees in Poland has increased in recent months and weeks. According to our estimates, they are now about 3 million. We talked about this with the president, because it will probably mean an increase in the number of refugees from Ukraine to Germany," he added. 

In addition, Duda emphasized that his

country provided Ukraine with huge military support, which is estimated at approximately 2 billion dollars,

and Poles are now "pleased to receive information that the weapons manufactured in Poland work well and really help Ukrainian soldiers to defend the territory of Ukraine." .

It should be noted that starting in January, Poland 


to introduce 100% payment for living in refugee centers for all able-bodied Ukrainians who do not find work for 3 months and do not rent apartments.

According to the government, such an initiative motivates refugees to find work in Poland as soon as possible and to rent housing at their own expense.

We will remind you that Gremi Personal's survey showed that half of Ukrainian refugees have 

significantly improved their standard of living after being forced to move to Poland. 

As reported, the Poles were warned that this winter they 

may be threatened not only with power outages, but also with heating.

The risk is growing due to an outdated energy system and the danger of Russian retaliation for the oil embargo.
