More than 30,000 Ukrainian nationals have found employment in Poland since February 24, when Russia invaded their country, the Polish family and social policy minister has said.

The Polish government has granted Ukrainian refugees 18-month residency permits and allowed them to take up jobs as well as giving them access to healthcare, education and welfare schemes.

“We can see mostly women and children coming to Poland,” Marlena Maląg said at a press conference in the central city of Plock on Monday.

“Seventy-five percent of the 30,000 are women and 25 percent are men,” she added.

However, most of the jobs are in big cities, notably Warsaw, Poznań, Łódź and the south-western city of Wrocław.

“We would like Ukrainian citizens to look for and take up jobs all across Poland,” Maląg said, adding that the government has been preparing programmes promoting employment in Poland’s regions.

Poland is also about to facilitate the validation of Ukrainian diplomas and degrees so that the refugees can find jobs in their areas of expertise, Maląg said.
