There are protests in Warsaw due to the influx of Ukrainian refugees

Residents of Warsaw took to the streets of the Polish capital with protests due to the large influx of Ukrainian refugees.


European countries, primarily Poland, which has experienced the most massive influx of migrants, are already quite tired of Ukrainian refugees. The Poles who took to the streets chanted “Poland is here, not Ukraine.


Earlier it became known that the Polish authorities terminated some programs to help refugees from Ukraine. So, from July 1, Polish citizens will no longer receive benefits for the maintenance of migrants. In addition, Ukrainians who came to the country were deprived of the right to free travel. These measures apply to those migrants who arrived in Poland at the end of February. New ones – so far they can count on state assistance within 120 days.
