Poland has accepted 1.5 million Ukrainians, most of them from the territories where fighting is still going on, as stated by the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, during a meeting with his Hungarian counterpart, Viktor Orbán, in Budapest, Polskie Radio reports.
"We have received 1.5 million Ukrainians, with the majority of them being people from the territories where military activities have been continuing. We estimate that at least several tens of thousands are people who have fled these territories," Morawiecki said.
The Polish Prime Minister also stated that the country continues to provide assistance to the war-affected areas, restoring schools and hospitals.
Mateusz Morawiecki was appointed to the post of Prime Minister of Poland in early December 2017. On his first day as the Head of the Government, he claimed that Poland had taken in a significant number of refugees from Ukraine, as a result of the war.
