Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki again visited fighting Ukraine.
This visit is a gesture of support and a declaration of help for our neighbor to the east. The Prime Minister paid a visit to the Kyiv region, where temporary houses are being built on the initiative of the Polish government. They will house thousands of Ukrainians who had to flee the war. This is another such initiative from Poland. In April, we opened the first modular housing estate in Lviv. The creation of temporary shelters is only one step in our assistance to Ukraine. After the end of the Russian aggression, the Polish government pledged to support our companies in the reconstruction of the destroyed towns on the eastern border of Poland.
New modular houses in the Kyiv region
In agreement with the Ukrainian authorities, we are building centers for people who have had to leave their homes. The reason for the resettlement is the attacks of the Russian army in Ukraine. Civilians must flee their cities because their lives are in danger. The Polish government has supported its eastern neighbor since the beginning of the war. This time we also launched an initiative to help Ukrainians who need temporary shelter.
Ultimately, we will build modular housing estates in Ukraine for tens of thousands of internally displaced people. We have already opened our first houses in Lviv. About a thousand Ukrainians can live there. Another was built near kyiv. Thousands of people will find refuge there.
– We are in Borodzianka. In a place that three months ago was a normal city, like hundreds in Ukraine or Poland. This idyll suddenly turned into hell. The barbarians from Russia came and destroyed this normal life, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said.
Poland is trying to ensure that support reaches those most affected. Other modular housing estates will be built in Chernihiv and Sumy districts.
– Today in Borowianka, as well as in many other places in Ukraine, we are trying to restore a substitute for life – underlined the head of the Polish government.
After Borodzianka, temporary houses are also being built in Bucza. More than 700 people will find refuge there. Then it is planned to accommodate several hundred people, incl. in Makarów, Hostomel and Irpień.
Poland will help rebuild Ukraine
After the end of Russian aggression, the Polish government pledged to help rebuild the destroyed towns on our eastern border. Ukrainian Minister of Regional and Territorial Development Oleksiy Chernyshov expressed his belief that Polish companies and Polish companies will participate in the reconstruction.
Russia, through its barbaric actions, should pay for the damage it has caused in Ukraine. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stressed the need to confiscate property and money that belonged to Russian oligarchs and the Russian Federation.
– We talk all the time about the reconstruction of Ukraine, but to rebuild peace, we must first rebuild Ukraine. To do this, it is also necessary to have money to rebuild this country, underlined the Prime Minister.
Ukraine fights for the security of all of Europe
During his visit to Ukraine, the head of the Polish government underlined that our eastern neighbors are fighting for peace and security throughout Europe. We all live today in the shadow of a barbaric and bestial attack from Russia. The prime minister called for remembering what happened in the past.
– Today, Russia is testing its laboratory for evil. This diabolical laboratory is an attempt to test the West – an attempt to test the free world how far to go. Murders, mobile crematoria, rape, child deportations, war crimes, crimes of genocide, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
Another package of sanctions imposed on Russia
This week, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki attended the European Council, where another set of sanctions on Russia was approved. Thanks to the united attitude of the whole European Union, we are able to block the financing of Putin’s war machine. We must rebuild the political order so that Russia does not threaten the peace of other countries.
– There must be an economic blow so that Putin cannot finance his cruel and barbaric war – so this sanctions package is very important. All this so that today – especially when we think of children – we should also remember how many children died – said the head of the Polish government.
