Some 132,000 Ukrainian nationals have found employment in Poland since February 24, when Russia invaded their country, the Polish family and social policy minister said on Friday.


Marlena Malag noted that, due to a new law on aid to Ukrainian refugees, simplified procedures were in place for their employment.

"By Thursday, as many as 132,000 citizens of Ukraine have been employed this way," Malag said

"These people function very well on the Polish labour market," she added.

According to the family and social policy ministry data, the largest number of Ukrainians found jobs in the central Mazowieckie province (28,400) and the southern region of Lower Silesia (14,100).

The Polish Border Guard's recent data show that over 3.3 million refugees, mainly women and children, have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border into Poland since Russia's war on Ukraine started.
