Poland has welcomed close to 5 mln Ukrainian refugees

As many as 4.97 million refugees have found safe haven in Poland since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022.

Although the initial wave of refugees has diminished, people continue to flee the war-torn country. According to Poland’s Border Guard, 6,200 people have crossed the Polish border by 7:00 am on Saturday alone.
