Polish Border Guard Counts More Than 2 Million Refugees from Ukraine
Poland has now seen 2 million refugees from Ukraine enter the country. Three weeks after the start of the war, according to the Polish border guard, fewer and fewer Ukrainian citizens are crossing the border into Poland.
The border guard reports that around 9 a.m. Friday, the number of refugees had risen to 2 million. This mainly concerns women and children. Men under the age of 60 are not allowed to leave Ukraine. They must remain available to fight against the Russian army if necessary.
It is not clear how many refugees have remained in Poland and how many have moved on to other countries. There are no border controls within the European Union, and Ukrainians are also allowed to travel there freely.
As far as is known, hundreds of thousands of refugees have travelled from Ukraine’s neighbouring countries.
