A deputy prime minister said last month that Poland was home to more than 2 million Ukrainians after many who had fled Russia's invasion moved on to other countries or decided to return to Ukraine.
In March last year, Poland enacted a measure to offer wide-ranging support to Ukrainians escaping the Russian invasion of their country, which began on February 24, 2022.
The measure grants them residence rights and ensures access to education, healthcare and social benefits.
Monday is day 341 of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
