More than 35,000 Ukrainian nationals have found employment in Poland since February 24, when Russia invaded their country, the Polish family and social policy minister has said.

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

She also said that seventy-five percent of the 35,000 Ukrainians who have found jobs in Poland are women and that most of the jobs are in Poland's largest cities, notably, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Lodz and Poznan.

According to the Polish Border Guard's recent data, over 2.5 million refugees, mainly women and children, have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border into Poland since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.
