Warsaw, June 13 (QNA) - The Polish authorities announced that they had received more than four million refugees from Ukraine since the start of the Russian military operation.
Polish media quoted a statement issued by the Polish Border Guard that said it received 4,021,000 refugees who have fled Ukraine due to the military situation in the country since Feb. 24. It also indicated that it had received 21,500 refugees on Sunday, compared to 24,900 the day before.
Poland had passed a bill in March that provides a wide-ranging support package for Ukrainian refugees fleeing their country, including access to accommodation, education, health care and social services.
Europe has not witnessed such a rapid influx of refugees since World War II, as humanitarian and relief organizations estimate that the proportion of women and children from the number of Ukrainian refugees is about 90 percent. (QNA)
