Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki opened a container town for 300-350 people for internally displaced persons in Ukraine in Lviv and announced the construction of similar towns around Kyiv.
"We are doing everything to protect Ukrainian children and women. There will be more such towns - 300-350 people find shelter here. In Lviv alone there will be 5 thousand people. Our envoys go to the cities around Kiev and will build similar towns," the Office of Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki was quoted as saying on Twitter page on Tuesday.
In addition, the prime minister called on the European Commission to launch a solidarity fund for Ukraine. "I appeal to the European Commission for the solidarity fund for Ukraine to work and for new money to appear. There is nothing to wait for. No more crimes should be allowed to be committed. Today the sanctions must be as tough as possible," Moravetsky stressed.
He noted that wherever he meets with leaders, he points out the need for the toughest possible sanctions. "This is the lowest price we can pay to regain our freedom. I call on European leaders to abandon their calculators and turn to their conscience," the Polish prime minister pointed out.
According to Morawiecki, already 10 million people in Ukraine have been forced to leave their homes, of which 2.5 million people live in Poland, but 6 million are in the country.
