Poland Preparing To Help Ukrainian Refugees In Case of Russian Invasion

Polish Interior Minister, Mariusz Kaminski said they are ready to accept refugees in case of Russian invasion in Ukraine as what he believes is a potential influx of refugees in the Heart of Europe.

Mariusz said Poland is preparing itself for any possible scenario, expressing readiness to receive up to one million refugees from Ukraine if Russia invades.

Meanwhile, Mariusz Deputy, Maciej Wasik said that the Polish government will act in solidarity with Ukraine. “Under the Geneva Convention, these people will be under Polish protection and we will never say no to people who need help,”

Moreover, TVN24 reported quoting Konstanty Radziwill, the governor of Mazovia province, that they are preparing a list of buildings that could be used for potential housing of refugees.

Radziwill said they can even turn schools, training centers, hostels, hotels, as well as sporting and entertainment arenas into refugee shelters if needed.

Poland is already hosting an estimated of over one million Ukrainian refugees, making it by far the country’s largest immigrant group.

The number of refugees have increased after the recent threat posed by Russia over military invasion that sparked huge concern among the world powers, including the US that warned Moscow of dire consequences if it attacked Ukraine.
