More than 2.5 million Ukrainians have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border since the Russian invasion. The Ministry of the Interior estimates that 1.5 million of them remain in Poland. The government and local authorities and also many non-governmental organisations and people of goodwill are involved in helping refugees.
So far, local administrations have received 400 million PLN to help refugees. Ukrainian citizens have received 700,000 PESEL numbers, allowing them to access health, education, social security and work. Mobile PESEL registration points have been established.
