47 days of the war, Poland daily provides Ukraine with humanitarian aid, legal support, and political protection

The war that Russia opened against Ukraine was instantly reflected in several countries that border Ukraine. Because it was to these countries that Ukrainians fled from the war.

Poland, one of the countries that most recently suffered from the invasion of Syrian refugees from Belarus, received 2.48 million refugees from Ukraine. Moreover, preparations for meeting Ukrainians, who are saving their children in a neighboring country, began in advance.

Today, Poland provides comprehensive assistance to Ukraine in its euroaspirations, defends Ukraine's opinion in the international arena, is the first of all countries to recognize Russia's actions against Ukrainians as genocide, and calls on the EU countries to take broader steps to bring Putin to justice.

"Our task is to restore justice. Therefore, Poland calls for the creation of an International Commission to investigate Russian crimes in Ukraine. Today, the most important thing is to open the eyes of everyone, including in Europe: Western and Eastern. Especially those in Hungary. If someone today is not noticed Russian crimes in Ukraine, does not call them by name, this is a mistake, and we must abandon it as soon as possible," Mateusz Morawiecki, prime minister of Poland.

On April 10, Polish president Andrzej Duda confirmed his desire to help Ukraine and bring to justice both those who personally kills Ukrainians and those who leads this meat grinder.

"We will support Ukraine in all legal and diplomatic measures aimed at punishing the perpetrators of the crimes that the Russians are now committing. We will do everything so that the affected Ukrainians do not have to wait 80 years for justice!" wrote Andrzej Duda on his Twitter.

On April 9, it became known that Poland had paused relations with neighboring Hungary, as the country's prime minister mindlessly spouts pro-Russian phrases and continues to promote Putin.

"If prime minister Orban says he can't see clearly what happened in Bucha, I would recommend him to visit an ophthalmologist. It's disappointing," Polish deputy prime minister Jarosław Kaczyński.

Orban's refusal to condemn Putin's actions and help Ukraine with weapons was described by Kaczyński as unambiguously negative. "The restoration of relations is possible only after a change in the assessments of the war in Ukraine," Jarosław Kaczyński.
